Designed for General Aviation in mind.
The smartPanel Mount for iPad Mini was designed by aerospace engineers to perform in the unique environment of the cockpit. The spring actuated mounting cradle securely holds the iPad in place during the roughest of turbulence. The clean, flush mount has a shallow chassis allowing it to be easily installed in even the smallest of instrument panels. Built-in ports for the included Apple Lightning cable and 3.5mm audio cable in the package will keep cables safely and securely positioned behind the panel, allowing you the ability to connect to power, data, and audio without the cord mess. The included smartPower 150-301 power supply will convert any aircraft power from 9 to 48 volts down to the 5 volt, 2.7 amp power needed to power and charge your iPad Mini.
Packaged with smartPower 150-301 Power Supply
The smartPanel Mount Package for iPad Mini includes the smartPower 150-301 Single USB Power Supply to provide power to the mount and your iPad Mini! The smartPower 150-301 is a remote mounted Single USB type power / charging unit designed to mount directly on the included mounting positions on the back of the iPad Mini mount. The smartPower 150-301 provides 2.7 amps at 5 VDC Ã‚Â± 0.25 (10 watt) to keep your iPad Mini powered and charging through all phases of flight. The package also includes the Apple MFi Certified Lightning Cable and the 3.5mm Audio Cable.
Keep it cool.
As they are being used, iPads generate heat that can affect performance -- resulting in a high-temperature shut down when you might need it most! Pilots have found this out the hard way when using a temporary mounting solution like Velcro to attach their unit to the instrument panel. The smartPanel Mount was designed with cooling in mind. Each mount has a 5/8" tapered hose / tube port built-in, allowing you to attach it to a standard avionics cooling fan. Each panel mounting tray features cooling channels to circulate air behind your iPad to keep it cool even under the heaviest of use.
The smartPanel Mount is designed for easy installation in your panel. Each durable molded ABS plastic unit is self-contained and mounts with only four screws. Our installation drawings give you the exact panel cutout details and screw positions in either PDF or AutoCAD DXF for precise cuts. The smartPanel Mount for iPad Mini requires a 7.834" long and 5.679" high panel cutout and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
The included smartPower 150-301 Single USB 2.7 amp power supply mounts directly on the back of the panel mount, simplifying installation even further!
Both the Lightning Cable and Audio Cable mount directly in the specially designed ports in the iPad mount.
