“With Beam, we set out to leverage our 25 years of experience in the personal tech industry and create a simple yet effective solution for the healthcare segment. Our extensive background in designing accessories for the iPhone gave us a leg up but there was still much research into the medical industry needed to truly understand the pain points of the healthcare workers for which we intended Beam to help,” said Dean Shortland, Director of Product Development, Healthcare. “After many iterations incorporating feedback from medical professionals around the country, we’re thrilled to see Beam hit the market and redefine the clinical workflow of the healthcare industry.”

In a single, ergonomic unit, Beam harnesses the power of iOS in a dependable platform that's designed to improve clinical workflow. Supporting more than a dozen of the most widely used barcode systems, Beam scans barcodes even on many challenging curved or reflective surfaces. Its ergonomic design is easy to grasp and use shift after shift, and can be operated whether the worker is wearing gloves or not. Beam's impact-resistant polycarbonate shell is designed to protect the iPhone from 4-foot drops onto the floor. Designed for an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance and integrated with a Touch ID-compatible screen protector, Beam's smooth exterior is cleanable with industry-standard CaviCide and bleach wipes.

Beam is self-powered and rechargeable. Additional, externally swappable batteries (2,200mAh) provide power to Beam's barcode scanner and provide additional battery life for the iPhone. Batteries and Beam units both recharge in approximately two hours in Beam's custom-built charging dock. Each dock can recharge three Beam units and three battery packs.

Griffin’s continued focus on the enterprise segment is seen with the announcement of their Universal Charge Cart, which can charge up to 30 laptops or tablets at once, and expanded colorways of MultiDock, Survivor and other charging solutions catering to the Medical, Emergency Responder, and Law Enforcement verticals.

Charge, store and secure up to 30 full-sized laptops or tablets from a single outlet with Griffin’s new Universal Charge Cart. It's the perfect asset management solution for schools, hospitals, or any business environment.

Built-in power distribution points distribute surge-protected charging to the connected devices' power supplies. User-configurable charge profiles optimize power delivery to connected devices, while intelligent power management cycles through devices to lessen the cart's overall charging load. Internal dividers and cord management organize laptops for easy loading and unloading. Passive ventilation and overcharge protection circuits protect laptops as they charge. The powder-coated steel cabinet secures the laptops with a keyed latch. And three-inch locking casters swivel for maneuverability in tight spaces for quiet, safe transport to classrooms, offices, labs or workspaces.

Rounding out Griffin’s enterprise collection at CES is an expanded range of colorways for many of their best-selling business solutions. Griffin’s new enterprise colorways enhance the devices used in these fields and create visual consistency with other sector-specific gear. The MultiDock, MultiDock Cart, Survivor All-Terrain for iPad, Reserve Battery Case, and Premium Charge/Sync Cables will soon be available in colors suited for the Medical, Emergency Responder and Law Enforcement verticals. New colorways include Medical Light Blue, Medical Gray, Fire Engine Red, and Police Blue.
