USB hub 2.0 8-Port, switchable

You simply activate the devices you really need. This gives you the benefit of saving electricity, protecting your hardware and your computer is not compromised in its performance.

This USB hub 2.0 has eight downstream ports, which can be turned on and off individually via USB. When switching it off, the supply voltage (+5 V) and the data lines on the semiconductor switches are separated. The control is via the Toolmonitor USB hub (PC software), which is included in delivery in the form of an USB memory stick. Each USB port can be used as standard port (SDP), load-in line (CDP) or as a charger connection (DCP)  and provides the connected device up to 2.5 A. Additionally to the USB ports, the USB hub still has a 8-channel relay multiplexer, with a centrally supplied voltage individually on each port (max. 48 V) and independently switchable, e.g. device supply with a voltage other than 5 V.

The connection is made via 4mm banana plugs. Whether or not and which ports are active after switching on the hub (for example, access to the mouse or keyboard) can be stored in non-volatile memory. Via a button on the device, one can either temporarily shut down all ports or restore the previous switching state of all ports. A storable device number helps distinguish multiple USB hub 8 on a PC. For third-party software, the Toolmonitor USB hub can be completely remote controlled. COM/DCOM or a .Net-Assembly is used as an interface. This allows the Toolmonitor USB hub to be integrated in a large number of applications (MCD TestManager CE, LabView®, Microsoft Visual Studio® (C#, C++, Visual Basic), Microsoft Office® (e.g. Excel®), OpenOffice®).

The MCD Toolmonitor USB hub serves as an operator interface for the MCD USB hubs.
