Redpark Product Development, which shipped the industry’s first Ethernet Cable for iPad and iPhone, announces the first Made for iPad (MFI) compliant powered Lightning ethernet adapter.
The Ethernet+Power Adapter is a specialty version of USB to Ethernet adapter. It provides a general purpose ethernet connection and also connects the iPad to power. The Adapter is compatible with any iOS app that makes use of a Redpark ethernet SDK.
“We’ve designed the Ethernet+Power Adapter for use in point of sale systems, kiosks, automation control systems and other use cases where there is a need to connect an iPad to a wired network interface and to power. While WiFi is suitable for many commercial applications, wired ethernet provides unmatched reliability and security,” noted Redpark president Mike Ridenhour.
“We also provide SDKs for enterprises and app developers to use in developing their solutions,” explained Ridenhour. “Our SDKs provide full control over configuration of the network interface and also enable simultaneous use of two network interfaces – something that has never been possible on an iPad before.”

The Ethernet+Power Adapter has an MSRP of $129 and is available today.
