With industrial and OEM applications increasingly adding USB devices, the need for more USB ports becomes a necessity. The HUB7P is a powered USB 2.0 7-port hub that is perfect for adding high-speed USB ports to industrial computing platforms.
The HUB7P is USB 2.0 compliant, providing a full 480M bps data rate to the host, and is backwards compatible with USB 1.1 and 1.0 devices. The powered hub includes a wall-mount AC adapter that supplies a full 500mA to each attached USB peripheral. The power supply outputs 5VDC @ 4A and has a locking DC connector to prevent accidental removal of the power cable. The hub is housed in a rugged plastic enclosure and status LEDs indicate external power, connection to the host, and fault conditions.
To prevent accidental disconnection of the USB cable, the HUB7P integrates a high-retention USB type B connector. Standard operating temperature range is 0C to +70C and extended temperature range (-40C to +85C) is optional.
Supported in Windows, Linux, and other USB aware operating systems, the HUB7P requires no separate drivers and is easy to install. Simply provide power to the hub using the included power supply, plug the hub into an available USB port with the included cable, and the hub is automatically recognized.
