What We Delivered

Key Objectives

Working within a tight fixed 19″ form factor DesignEdge were tasked with designing and developing a phone charging and docking system that not only looked stylish but could accommodate 16 phones. The technical product design brief incorporated the requirement to fit the existing Thundersync controller an electromechanical mechanism for individual phone locking as well as an adjustable cable connection system that could fit a variety of different phone and case sizes. The MODiT also required adjustment for the phone depth without the need to remove the cover.


DesignEdge worked closely with the Cambridge based Cambrionix engineering team to develop a compact stylish product design incorporating all the mechanical requirements from the design brief. Stackable, rackable and suitable for fixing to a wall or sitting on a desk, ModIT modules can be easily stored for trouble-free access. Features include configurable LEDs; a simplified cable management system; and integrated anti-microbial technology for healthcare settings. The innovative solution has allowed Cambrionix to file several patents.

“ModIT Docking and Charging Station is an easy charge, sync and store unit for 16 mobile phones in this self-contained 19” charging station module. DesignEdge delivered a number of innovative concepts for both the mechanics and styling which allowed us to move the design forward with speed and confidence. Through the design process we have also successfully filed a number of patents. The finished product not only looks impressive but it integrates innovative security features within a space saving form factor. I would have no hesitation in recommending DesignEdge’s development skills to any company needing to successfully bring products to market on time and within budget”
