For industrial computing applications that require embedded USB ports, the HUB4PH-OEM USB Hub 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 hub 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 USB Hub 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 0°C to 70°C and extended temperature range (-40°C to 85°C) is optional.I/O in Action for Autonomous Power Line Inspections
Sealevel partners with a company that develops AI-driven software to enable smart drones to carry out autonomous power line inspections and monitoring of power grids, eliminating the need for traditional helicopter inspections. The HUB4PH-OEM's embedded design and locking Molex USB connectors eliminate vibration tolerance concerns often associated with drone operation.
