40E2USBM-VW PDL342USB2-VW Dual USB Charging Mechanism

The USB Charging Mechanism is intended for devices that are designed to be recharged via a USB port.

  • Do not attempt to connect devices that are not designed to be charged via a USB port.
  • Do not parallel-connect the USB ports in order to achieve higher current output. The ports are intelligent ports that communicate with devices to optimize the charge current.
  • Always use the USB charging cable supplied with the device to be charged.
  • There are no user-serviceable parts inside the USB charging mechanism.

Failure to follow these instructions may result in damage to the USB Charging Mechanism and connected equipment.


For your safety


• This product must be installed and serviced by appropriately qualified and/or licensed electrical personnel.
• Isolate the electrical supply before doing any work on this product.
• Ensure that the product has been correctly installed and tested for safe operation before reconnecting the electrical supply.
Failure to follow these instructions will result in death or serious injury.

Hazardous voltage and electrical current may be present at the wire leads of this product even when the device is switched off.
• Lockout and tag the input circuit before accessing the wiring connections.
• Use the supplied terminal block to connect the USB Charging Mechanism to the electrical circuit.
• After wiring, wrap the terminal block with insulating tape.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious injury.


Install the device according to the instructions in this document.
• Pay attention to the specifications and wiring diagrams related to the installation.
• Do not use this product for any other purpose than specified in this instruction.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in minor injuries or equipment damage.

To avoid damaging the equipment and possibly voiding the warranty:
• Test operation during installation and correct any wiring errors immediately.
• Keep cable insulation away from the sides of the enclosure to avoid possible damage or long-term degradation of the cable insulation.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in equipment damage or malfunction.

Unit operation

• Connect device(s) to the USB port(s) on the USB charging module using the USB cable supplied with the device.
• The USB charging module will negotiate with each device to provide an optimized charging current.
• If two high-demand devices such as large tablets are connected to a dual-port USB charging module, the devices will negotiate with the module for the amount of charge current they require. As connected devices increase their charge level, the amount of current they require will decrease.

Setting the USB port orientation during installation

1. Hold the body of the USB Mechanism with one hand .
2. Use your other hand to rotate the USB Port Head in either direction until the Head clicks into place. The Head rotates in 90° increments.
3. Keep rotating the USB Port Head until you reach the desired orientation. Once installed, the USB port orientation should be as shown in , or as the customer requires.

Wiring diagram

• Use the terminal bock supplied with the USB charger to connect the module to the mains circuit.
• After wiring, wrap the terminal block with insulation tape.

Problem Recommended Resolution
A connected device is not charging. • If the charging port is on a Dual Port USB Charging Mechanism, connect the device to the other charging port. If the device charges, there may be a problem with the mechanism charging port.
• Connect the device to the charging port using another compatible USB cable. If the device charges, replace the faulty cable.
• Connect the device to another compatible charger. If the device charges, there may be a problem with the mechanism charging port.
A large tablet (or similar high-demand device) takes an unusually long time to charge. • If the device is connected to a Single Port USB Charging Mechanism, the maximum output from the port (1.5 A) may be less than the optimal output required by the device. The device should still charge, albeit over a long period of time.
• The Ionic Dual Port USB Charging Mechanism has a higher maximum output and is better suited to charge higher-demand devices such as large tablets.
• If the cable being used to connect the device to the charger is not the cable that was supplied with the device, try a genuine cable. Cheap non-reputable cables are a common source of charging issues with devices.
Two large tablets (or similar high-demand device) take longer to charge when both are connected to the Dual Port USB Charging Mechanism. • On dual port chargers, the double type A charger has a single output rate of 2.1 A, except when both ports are used together it reduces to a maximum output rate of 3.0 A. Chargers with Type A (2.4 A output) and Type C (3.0 A output) have a reduced output of 3.0 A when used together.
• When two high-demand devices that are low on charge are connected to the Dual Port Mechanism, the maximum output is shared between the two charging ports and each device may therefore receive less than optimum charging output.
