EMV PCI ATM Industry essential guide

The Kiosk Group Inc. announced the release of a product that cuts the cord on iPad kiosk power connectivity. The PowerWireRemote is a Power over Ethernet (PoE)-based device that delivers USB power using standard Ethernet cables, the announcement said, and is able to power iPads 1, 2, 3 and Mini — and even the power-hungry iPad 4 — using its built-in USB jack.

The PowerWireRemote System is composed of two small modules—the remote module and the kiosk module. The remote module is plugged into a standard wall outlet via the included power supply and, if wired Ethernet connectivity is desired, plugged into an Ethernet port. The Remote Module can be positioned up to 1,000 feet away from the kiosk, the announcement said. The Kiosk Module is small enough to fit inside any professional iPad or tablet kiosk enclosure, and both are connected using standard Cat5 or Cat6 Ethernet cables.

"Until now, our customers were limited in where they could install a kiosk — it had to be near a wall plug. Or they had to hire electricians and get permits to install new outlets specifically for the kiosks. PowerWireRemote changes all of that," said Mike James, Kiosk Group president. "Any IT employee can run Cat5 to the kiosks. In fact, many companies install Cat5 through their walls when their spaces are being constructed or renovated, so there's a good chance that the cable they need is already there."
