IFPL’s 1345 USB-C is delivered to the newest standard in USB power and data connectivity market. The 1345 enhances passenger experience through data and power with industry leading reliability.

Research confirms that both portable and wearable devices will become widespread to the point of saturation over the coming years. Airline passengers are already demanding the ability to both charge and interface the latest portable and wearable device with on-board In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) and connectivity. With Apple, Dell, Intel, HP, Microsoft and Samsung now selecting USB-C, the 1345 has been specifically developed to meet the demands of this new standard. NOTE: larger tablets may trickle charge only, this will vary by manufacturer.

The USB-C standard offers a number of enhancements over USB 3.0 and 2.0; including higher data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s and increased power output of up to 100W (5A at 20V) to support more demanding devices.

The light guide delivers an even spread of light with a low energy input, ensuring that passengers can easily identify, locate and insert their USB-C plug. Both the light guide colour and optional decal print are customisable; allowing airlines to enhance the overall aesthetic of the cabin. A non-light guide version is also available.

Reliability is essential to ensure ongoing high levels of customer satisfaction. All materials used in the construction of the 1345 have been proven in service to provide durable and cost effective lifetime use. In the unlikely event of the unit failing, such as through Customer Induced Damage (CID), the 1345 has been designed for easy on-wing replacement.
