Introduction
Designed to securely store and charge notebook PCs-from tablets and minis to notebooks with up to a 15.6-inch diagonal screen sizeinside the classroom, these innovative carts have a large compartment with up to 30 individual, smooth-edged shelves for easy, quick,
and safe loading and unloading by teachers and students, and a separate, locked IT compartment to store notebook power adapters
(Charging and Managed Charging Carts) and Ethernet connectors (Managed Charging Carts). The HP 20- and 30-Notebook Charging
Carts store and charge 20 or 30 notebooks PCs. The HP 20- and 30-Notebook Managed Charging Carts store and charge 20 or 30 units
and include Ethernet cables for convenient batch installation of software updates or virus protection.
Key Features
Open Architecture: Compatible with a large variety of HP and non-HP tablets, netbooks, and notebooks, up to 15.6 inch screen
size
Smart Charging Technology: Load-sensing technology directs charging power when and where it's needed most, so each
notebook is charged as quickly as possible.
Retractable Front Doors: Two locking, hinged front doors on the notebook bay open from the center and retract into the cart's
side channels for neat storage.
Removable Shelves: Lightweight, shelves feature hand cut-outs for easy notebook removal and venting for optimal
cooling/airflow. Removable shelves and pegs allow extra storage space inside the cart. Shelf insertion/removal is done through
a simple peg and notch system.
Service Compartments: Two locking, removable rear panels allow access to the AC adapters (Charging Cart) and Ethernet
cabling (Managed Charging Carts). The top locking panel on the top surface of the cart is removable for access to IT equipment
(i.e. WAP/router, Ethernet switch(es) and controller box). For the Managed Charging Carts, switch(es) and WAP/router are
purchased separately and customer-installed.
Ample Ventilation: On the Charging Cart, two continuous-operation fans provide cooling in the top compartment. On the
Managed Charging Carts, two fans cool IT equipment located in the top compartment and four fans cool the notebooks in the
main body of the cart. All fans are always on. Venting is located on both end panels and the front and rear of the cart.
Casters: Four 4-inch medical-grade, dual-wheel custom casters support easy turning and moving over thresholds. All four
casters can be locked into place through a foot brake pedal to prevent the cart from rolling. All four casters swivel.
Cable Management:
Internal: Cable management channel guides keep power (Charging Cart and Managed Charging Carts) and Ethernet cables
(Managed Charging Carts) neat and managed inside the cart.
External: Specially-designed panels located at each end of the cart that provide venting also serve as a recessed cable
management wrap for external cabling.
Security Features: Includes a standard key/ lock system for securing the notebook and service compartments. A single key
opens all notebook and service compartments of the cart. All compartments are independently secured, restricting user access
to only desired compartments. Four keys are included with each cart. NOTE: All carts are keyed the same

Outlets
NOTE: On Managed Charging Carts, an LED indicator displays when power is distributed to the external
outlets. If there is available current while the Aux outlets are in use, it will be directed to charging the
notebooks. Once external equipment is unplugged or turned off, full charging activity resumes. First-level
power priority is given to the auxiliary, switch and WAP outlets. Notebook outlets will receive current if there
is remaining power available.
Timer Controller
Sorting/prioritizing of power allocation happens when the cart is plugged in and when a new factor (such as
plugging in an additional notebook, use of the external auxiliary outlets, etc) is introduced or at regular
intervals if no new event occurs.

NOTE: At cart start up, the system initiates a current sensing action. During
this time, the bank being sensed will flash fast until the sensing activity is
complete. Interval length is optimized at 30 seconds per bank for current
sensing and 10 minutes per group for charging.

Notebook Charging
Status
Cart design assumes that charge status of each individual notebook will be displayed on the notebook and not
indicated on the cart.
Fault Conditions
Unmanaged Carts: None
Managed Carts: : Temperature sensor shuts down charging if the maximum internal temperature is exceeded.
Once operating temp returns to safe levels, charging will automatically resume operation. The Amber LED
light flashes to indicate fault. Power is not removed from the controller box, aux outlets or WAP/Wireless
router during high-temperature conditions.
Unmanaged Carts: The Controller Box accepts power from an input cord and is distributed through two circuit
breakers (Line and Neutral) to the Power Control Board. It also utilizes an HP standard AC adapter to convert
AC to DC for fan and digital control and provides DC power to two fans. It is designed to meet all applicable
standards. The Controller Box houses the PC board that directs the intelligent electrical system.
Managed Carts: The Controller Box accepts power from an input cord and is distributed through two circuit
breakers (Line and Neutral) to the Power Control Board. It also utilizes an HP-standard AC adapter to convert
AC to DC for fans and digital control and provides DC power to six fans and digital signals to the LED and
temperature sense board. It is designed to meet all applicable standards. The Controller Box houses the PC
board that directs the intelligent electrical system.
Unmanaged Carts: Two 5-volt DC continuous operation fans in the top compartment of the cart
Managed Carts: Four 12-volt DC continuous operation cooling fans in the notebook bay. Two 5-volt DC
continuous operation cooling fans in the top compartment.

Cooling
NOTE: Temperature sensing is located in the cart to monitor inlet air of the notebooks to verify safe
operation. The size and power requirements of the fans are dependent upon thermal analysis of the heat load
and cooling schema. They are connected to the Power Control Box via a modular connector of the appropriate
current rating.

If the over temperature threshold is met, power to the AC power adapters (notebook charging) and Ethernet
outlets is removed and the high-temperature LED is enabled. When the high-temperature situation is
corrected, power is restored to the AC adapters without user intervention; the high-temperature LED is
disabled.
