The UH104 by B&B Electronics is an affordable four-port mini USB hub that connects several peripheral devices to a single USB port.
Rugged enough for industrial use, the hub is powered by the host USB port and provides downstream devices with 100 mA of power and high-speed connectivity at 480 Mbps.
Easy to mount in harsh environments, the unit is 61x44.5x17.9mm and is housed in a rugged ABS housing with mounting tabs. The operating temperature range is -40 to 80 degrees C. The device uses high-retention USB connectors with 3.4 lbs. of force requirement for disconnection—important for high-vibration applications.
The hub is sufficiently rugged for use in industrial EN61000-6-1 harsh environments and the construction was validated using IEC60068-2-32 drop testing. It adheres to 15 kV ESD protection and FCC/CISPR Class B standards. Priced at $129 for the entry-level hub. Contact B&B for delivery.
