USB hub 3.0 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. Due to the new USB 3.0 Standard integration, the data transfer rate will increase tremendously.

This USB hub 3.0 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. A useful feature is that there are additional connections at each port on the connected devices that can be supplied with an externally supplied voltage of maximum 30 VDC. A storable number in the device helps distinguish multiple USB hubs on a PC.

The control is via ASCII commands or the Toolmonitor USB hub (PC software), which is included in delivery in the form of an USB memory stick. Whether or not and which ports are active after switching on the hub can all be configured and stored. The ports can also be switched manually via buttons. Optionally, sending commands through the USB 3.0 host connection or the additionally available USB 2.0 port is possible. 

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. 30 V) and independently switchable, e.g. device supply with a voltage other than 5 V. The relay channels can also be used for different and independent switching operations.

For third-party software, the Toolmonitor USB hub can be completely remote controlled. COM/DCOM or .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®). This USB hub 3.0 8-port can also be implemented for Linux operating systems, if required. The MCD Toolmonitor USB hub serves as an operator interface for the MCD USB hubs.
