Industrial Four and Seven Port USB 2.0 Hubs Provide High Data Rate to Host
Sealevel Systems expanded their line of USB hubs to include both 4-port and 7-port versions that are USB 2.0 compliant, providing a full 480M bps data rate to the host, and are backwards compatible with USB 1.1 and 1.0 devices. Each includes a wall-mount AC adapter that supplies a full 500 mA to each attached USB peripheral. The HUB4P integrates SeaLATCH locking USB ports that are fully compatible with standard USB cables. When used with the included SeaLATCH USB host cable, the metal thumbscrew provides a secure metal-to-metal connection to the hub and prevents accidental disconnection of the USB cable. Both the upstream USB type “B” connector and four downstream type “A” connectors can be secured by using SeaLATCH USB cables. The HUB7P utilizes seven type “A” connectors and includes a high-retention USB type "B" connector that helps prevent unintentional separation of a standard USB cable. Status LEDs indicate external power, connection to the host, and fault conditions. Optional clips are available for mounting to standard 35 mm DIN rail. Supported in Windows, Linux, and other USB aware operating systems, both products are easy to install and require no separate drivers. Simply power the hub using the included power supply, plug the hub into an available USB port, and then the hub is automatically recognized by the operating system. The HUB4P is available from stock and prices start at $159.
