A new line of industrial-grade USB 2.0 hubs, the UPort 400 series are now available from CrispTech . The UPort 404 and 407 can expand 1 USB port into 4 or 7 ports. The hubs are designed to provide true USB 2.0 Hi-Speed 480Mbps data transmission through each port, even for heavy-load applications.
The UPort 400 series is also USB-IF certified through high-speed compliance testing for industrial applications. In addition to EDS level 4 protection built-in, the hubs are compliant with the USB plug and play specification and provide a full 500mA of power per port to ensure that the USB devices will function properly even in heavy-load applications. The UPort 400 series offers reliable and stable USB connection and increased productivity.
To provide users reliable USB connectivity, Moxa has attained USB-IF (USB Implementers Forum) certification for the UPort 400 series industrial-grade USB. USB-IF verifies a number of strict electrical requirements for high-speed hubs designed for the USB 2.0 specification. Therefore, the UPort 404 and UPort 407 support up to 480Mbps USB 2.0 transmissions, are compliant with interoperability requirements, have enough power for devices to function, and provide a successful transition back to high-speed operation from suspend mode.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can be as severe as having more than 1000V of ESD with a high rise time (dv/dt) break through the junction layer of protective devices. To guard against serious damage, Moxa's UPort 404/407 USB hubs offer ESD level 4 (contact 8kV, air 15kV) protection.
The UPort 404 and UPort 407 support both a power terminal block and power jack for ease of use and greater flexibility. Users can connect the terminal block directly to a DC power source, or use the power jack to connect to an AC circuit through an adaptor. The UPort 404 supports external power and bus power supplies so no power adaptor is required. Bus power can also be used to connect low power devices.
With USB-IF certification, various built-in protections, DIN-Rail and wall mountable design, and up to 7 USB ports, Moxa's UPort 400 series industrial-grade hubs ensure that the USB devices will function properly in any heavy-load application.
Following are the features of Moxa's UPort 404/407 USB:
- Hi-Speed USB 2.0 for up to 480 Mbps USB transmission
- USB-IF certification
