LAPTOP 16H
The LAP16H is specifically designed for the storage and recharging of up to laptops. To assemble/configure your new
charging trolley, simply follow the steps below...
Ventilation:
All vents MUST be kept clear at all times, no posters etc. covering the perforations.
Also ensure there is a minimum of 50mm clearance between the back and sides of the
cabinet to ensure good air flow.
Fans
If fans are fitted: Whilst charging, if the temperature in the cabinet exceeds 30° the fans will
automatically initiate. The fan guards MUST be kept clear at all times, including allowing a
minimum of 75mm clearance between the back of the cabinet and the wall to ensure good
air flow. The fans will continue to run until the temperature drops below 30°.
However, if the room has a high ambient temperature this may cause the fans to remain on.
DO NOT CONNECT TO THE MAINS SUPPLY UNTIL STEPS 1-10 ARE COMPLETE
Step 1: Open the rear doors to reveal 16 power pack shelves and the IEC power strip.
As shown on page 1.
Step 2: Remove the mains/3pin plug lead (if fitted) from the laptop power pack and
store in a safe place.
Step 3: All LAP16H models are supplied with 16 x IEC to
figure of eight & 16 x IEC to cloverleaf cables to be connected into the
laptop power pack & the IEC power strips. Firstly select the leads with
corresponding connector for the power packs being used in the cart.

Step 6: Then place the power pack onto the rear storage area of the top shelf and
push the laptops connecting lead through to the front of the shelf. Repeat until all
power packs and leads are in place.
Step 7: Move to the front of the cabinet, unlock and open the front doors to
reveal 8 horizontal laptop shelves. Select one of the connecting leads, previously
fed through & plug it into the laptop.
Step 8: Place the laptop onto the shelf and repeat until all laptops are
connecting and in place - 2 laptops per shelf.
Step 9: Feed the IEC connector end of the supplied 2m mains lead through the
hole in the side of the trolley.
Step 10: Plug the mains lead into the IEC socket on the side of the timer module.
Step 11: Plug the trolley’s mains lead in to a switched wall socket and switch ON.
Switch on the unit’s own ON/OFF switch located above the mains lead input.
IMPORTANT - Ensure the wall socket switch is in the OFF position before
connecting and removing the mains plug
NOTE: When the unit is first turned ON, it will automatically divert to constant charging mode. To set the 24 hour
timer, refer to the steps below.
