Designed with General Aviation in mind.
The smartPanel Mount for iPad Pro 10.5-in 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 Apple Lightning plug and a 3.5mm audio cable help keep cables safely and securely positioned behind the panel, allowing you the ability to connect to power, data, and audio without the cord mess.
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 built-in Fan Blower (14 or 28V) capable of supplying 4.6 Cubic feet per minute of Air and because it is powered by the aircraft you will not run out of battery. Each panel mounting tray features cooling channels to circulate Fan Blower 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. The installation drawings give you the exact panel cutout details and screw positions in either PDF or AutoCAD DXF for precise cuts.
Mount in Automobiles, Boats, RVs, and Displays Too!
Though the smartPanel Mount for iPad Pro was designed for use in aircraft, the durable construction and well-designed flush mount can be used easily for a wide variety of applications -- wherever there is a flat surface!
