For industrial computing applications that require embedded USB ports, the HUB4PH-OEM with four USB battery charging downstream ports is the ideal solution. The hub 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 HUB4PH-OEM includes a +5V power cable that sources power from a standard hard drive connector. Order the appropriate internal USB cable for your motherboard under the Accessories tab.
As USB charging has gained popularity, the 500mA minimum found on other USB 2.0 hubs has become insufficient for devices requiring higher charging rates. The ports on the HUB4PH-OEM are configured as a Charging Downstream Ports (CDP) capable of supplying up to 1.5A of current to each downstream device. All downstream ports are USB Battery Charging Specification BC1.2 Compliant, perfect for charging batteries or powering high-current USB peripherals.
Supported in Windows, Linux, and other USB aware operating systems, the HUB4PH-OEM requires no separate drivers. A 2mm 5-pin Molex vertical header provides an internal USB connection to your host system. For EBX and larger motherboards with a 0.1 onboard USB header, order the CA469 internal USB cable. For smaller motherboards with a 2mm onboard USB header, order the CA472 internal USB cable. Standard operating temperature range is 0C to +70C and extended temperature range (-40C to +85C) is optional.
The HUB4PH-OEM is perfect for adding up to four iPorthole Digital I/O modules to your embedded application. The optional CA471 internal USB cable provides the connection from the 5-pin downstream USB ports on the HUB4PH-OEM to the 4-pin USB connector on iPorthole modules.
The intelligent Porthole design is perfect for expanding industrial computing platforms using only an internal USB connection. iPorthole modules include an intelligent USB I/O board with Sealevel’s innovative Porthole mounting plate for installation in a Relio or custom enclosure. Simply design the 3.2″ x 3.1″ Porthole mounting footprint into your enclosure to mix and match iPorthole USB I/O modules for maximum configurability. The Porthole footprint offers a standardized method for interfacing real-world I/O connections. The HUB4PH-OEM allows you to connect up to four iPorthole modules using only a single USB connection on the motherboard.
