Power and data supply leader ECA by Dekko announces the launch of Departure, brand-new device-charging technology with USB ports and AC receptacles that’s designed for beam seating in airports, bus and train stations, and healthcare waiting rooms – places where people need to plug in and charge phones, computers and tablets.
“Connectivity is more of a necessity than a luxury. Departure gives power where users need it, delivering non-stop connection in high-traffic spaces,” said Meghan Meier, Marketing Director, Dekko.
Compatible with a variety of group-seating furniture designs, Departure delivers power, USB and USB-C straight to the edge of the occupant’s seat. The product mounts to virtually any beam-seating structure: T-shaped, rectangular, square, triangular or round. Its versatile arm-to-clamp design puts charging within easy reach. Departure can also retrofit to existing seating.
This product also offers an under-mount option for installation under tabletops located between beam seats for shared user access.
ETL certified, Departure can be chained to the max of 16 receptacles (8 units total) per the National Electrical Code (NEC). The Departure Daisylink system operates from a single plug, which can be conveniently accessed from existing floor or wall outlets. No power pole needed!
Departure exceeds expectations when it comes to aesthetics and design. Having kept the user’s experience in mind, this product offers a simple look with a modern feel that provides an understated power solution. To avoid a tangle of power cords, multiple units can be connected from a single infeed.
“Any public location with beam seating can be made charge-friendly with Departure,” Dustin Ruth, Director of Sales said. “Power simply doesn’t get any more convenient.”
Departure offers 12-amp duplex receptacle power only, or power combined with USB and USB-C, to recharge laptops and other devices fast. The product is large enough for user visibility and durability in high-traffic areas but compact enough for minimal interference with custodial duties.
Departure is ETL Listed in the U.S. and Canada.
