EAO Schweiz AG

EAO Passenger Interface. Charge. Connect. Communicate.

The EAO Passenger Interface improves the passenger experience, by providing phone charging, eliminating ‘low battery anxiety’ and enabling passengers to stay connected on their journeys.

With the seatback mounted SliderFLEX that holds the phone securely in either landscape or portrait mode and a table top mounted version, every seat can be provided with a charging service.

Using the iBeacon location systems train operating companies can offer additional services and monetise their installation through their App’s to provide journey information, ticket sales or validation, trolley service requests etc.

The innovative passenger interface utilises a novel multi-coil inductive charger certified to the global Qi standard for iOS and Android that can charge any enabled phone wherever it’s charging interface is located – just by placing it in the SliderFLEX seatback holder, or on the table charging pad.

Wireless charging eliminates the need for cables and improves the reliability of the system, but the optional USB socket caters for older phones.
