Set up easily

Self-sufficient power supply with efficient solar panels

With the ibench® you don’t have to worry about development of the installation site. Through efficient solar panels integrated in the seat, the bench supplies itself with power. Simply place the ibench® in a sunny position where you want seating with ambient lighting and a mobile charging station; the ibench® will do the rest.

Solar panels integrated in the seat

Three monocrystalline solar panels each with 40 Wp produce enough energy for lighting, mobile charging function and LTE router, and therefore enable easy installation and virtually uninterrupted operation of the ibench® throughout the year, without additional power supply. Long-life, maintenance-free AGM batteries are fitted in the seat for buffering the solar energy, which are optimally charged with the aid of sophisticated electronics.

The solar panels are visible for all to see and provide the ibench® with renewable energy, and therefore sustainably charge mobile devices. A shatter-proof Perspex screen protects the technology against humidity and external mechanical influences.

Additional electricity (hybrid version) for even more power

For fuel-intensive tasks such as charging e-bikes or electric scooters, the ibench® requires additional power supplied by an external power connection. This is only used when the energy of internal batteries is no longer sufficient. The operation of displays requires this additional power supply (hybrid version).

Multi device charging station

Smartphones, tablets, e-bikes, electric scooters

With the ibench® you enable users to charge their electronic devices easily and conveniently. Two USB charging ports are available as well as two Qi charging pads for wireless charging. Simply place your device on this.

Also the ibench® offers perfect charging options for the new mobility with e-bikes and electric scooters, while the user is invited to have a short break.

Charging smartphones on the go

Via a USB port on the front of the ibench®  and two Qi charging pads on the bench seat, you offer users the possibility to charge up their electronic devices easily and conveniently. Up to 4 mobile devices can be charged on the ibench®  simultaneously. The USB connections are only for charging mobile devices; no data is downloaded or collected. This is GDPR compliant.

E-bikes and electric scooters

E-bikes are charged with bike energy via an integrated DC fast charger. There is no need to handle dangerous voltage, the battery does not need to be removed, and charging is approximately twice as quick as with a wall charger. The innovative magnet coupling also prevents damage to the bike or charging point.

Strong connections

WLAN, Bluetooth and much more

Your new ibench® is a true connectivity marvel. Provide your visitors with internet via WLAN hotspot* free of charge. Enable music playback* via 2 integrated sound pressure transducers by Bluetooth in stereo quality* or collect environmental data* that they always wanted to have. (*optional)

As a manufacturer we can adapt the ibench® exactly to your requests and requirements. And what's more, any integration not mentioned here can be implemented at little expense. Feel free to contact us.

WLAN hotspot

A WLAN hotspot supplies anyone in the immediate vicinity with high-speed Internet. Free, high-speed internet access is quickly gaining in popularity and becoming an attraction, especially for users with low data volumes or in locations with poor network coverage. Make use of this effect for targeted controlling of visitors and guests in your community, on your campus or in your company.

LTE routers, repeaters and wired routers (e.g. fibreglass) can be installed in the ibench® as an option.

Bluetooth stereo sound

Optionally, a Bluetooth sound system can be integrated into ibench® to turn your new bench into a favourite meeting point. Enable every visitor to connect to the ibench® via Bluetooth and play their music. Naturally, you determine the maximum volume and availability of service.

Environmental sensors

As standard, your new bench will enable you to collect environmental data, such as temperature and air humidity. This data is necessary for the reliable function of the ibench® and helps to assess the general condition of the bench.

You can define other optional measurements and as a result build up an interesting pool of information. All this information will be provided to you via an intuitive web interface, meaning that you can access the relevant info at any workplace.

Individual integration possibilities

Do you have any other ideas which features you want to integrate into the ibench®? We look forward to receiving your message - as a manufacturer we are in the position to implement most requests and welcome your suggestions.

Lighting & digital signage

Integrated LED lighting and/or monitors

Utilise your new street furniture multifunctionally. With the ibench® you get a bench that not only looks modern, but with sophisticated features such as LED downlight and side monitors, emphasis is placed on the perception of your public space. Illuminated street furniture gives visitors a feeling of safety, while at the same time highlighting relaxation spots by using lighting elements.

Optionally integrated monitors can be used for digital signage or renting to advertising partners.

LED downlight

The downlight is an LED-based, energy-saving ambient lighting which is attached underneath the bench. This indirectly lights the space surrounding the bench. A “light space” is generated, which also gives a safe feeling in the dark and invites you to take a break and rest.

Accent light strip

The accent light strip is attached to the edges of the bench and emphasises the silhouettes of the ibench®. It consists of discreetly lit and energy efficient LEDs. Decide for yourself which type of lighting best fits your street furniture design. You have a choice of 5 different colours for the light strip.

Advertising space

The ibench® can be powder-coated in all RAL colours and designed freely by us (or you) using conventional advertising technology. Make use of the lateral advertising space to convey your message or sponsor the bench via cooperation partners.

Screens

Information, entertainment and advertising: Depending on the screen and use, the robust and outdoor displays can be integrated both in the side panels and in the benches. You can use these for your own messages or for your advertising partner.

Your content can be transferred via online stream or online data transfer.
