USB Hub features Tru-Iso(TM) signal isolation up to 4 kV.

Press Release Summary:



Housed in rugged steel enclosure, USB-104-IHUB makes it possible to expand number of USB ports and provide up to 4 kV isolation between host computer and connected USB peripherals. Users may choose from DC power input jack or screw terminals to provide full 500 mA source at 5 V on each downstream port. With extended temperature range of -40 to 85°C, hub is suited for factory automation, medical, energy management, military/mission-critical, and transportation applications.



Original Press Release:



Rugged, Industrial-Strength 4-Port Isolated USB Hub Features 4kV Isolation and Extended Temperature Operation




SAN DIEGO, CA -- ACCES I/O Products, Inc., is pleased to announce the addition of a rugged, industrial-strength 4-port isolated USB hub to its ever-growing product line of small form factor embedded products—the USB-104-IHUB. This small medical/industrial/military grade hub features Tru-Iso™ signal isolation up to 4kV, extended temperature operation (-40C to 85C), high retention USB connectors, and an industrial steel enclosure for shock and vibration mitigation.



The USB-104-IHUB now makes it easy to expand the number of USB ports and provide up to 4kV isolation between the host computer and connected USB peripherals. Applications include factory automation, hospital and medical, energy management, military/mission-critical, transportation, security systems, and process monitoring.



Designed to integrate well in any application, the unit is available in a rugged steel enclosure or OEM as a "board-only" device. Users may choose from two power input connectors: a DC power input jack or screw terminals to provide a full 500mA source at 5V on each of the downstream ports. Additionally, a wide input power option exists to accept from 7VDC to 35VDC. Mounting provisions include DIN rail and various panel mounting plates. Available accessories include an isolated medical-grade power supply and a wide variety of standard USB cables for quick and easy-to-use, out of the box, connectivity. To make use of the miniature embedded USB header connectors, ACCES offers an assortment of embedded micro-fit USB header cables.



The USB-104-IHUB is especially useful in applications where high common-mode external voltages are present. Isolation is required to guard electronics from transient voltage spikes and offers greater common-mode noise rejection in electrically noisy surroundings containing industrial machinery and inductive loads. In addition to protecting applications from the influence of high external voltages, isolation eliminates troublesome ground loops.



Key features of the USB-104-IHUB include:

Rugged, industrialized, four-port USB hub

Signal isolation up to 4kV meets EN60601 standards

Advanced EFT, Lightning, and ESD protection at 20kV on all signal pins (air and contact)

Full-speed USB 2.0 device, USB 3.1 and 1.1 compatible

Industrial operating temperature (-40C to +85C)

Two power input connectors (power jack or screw terminals)

LED indicators for power and fault conditions for each downstream port

OEM version (board only) features PC/104 module size and mounting compatibility

Industrial grade USB connectors feature high-retention design

Includes micro-fit embedded USB header connectors in parallel with all standard USB connectors

Small (4" x 4" x 1"), low profile, steel enclosure

Software

No driver installation is required for the USB-104-IHUB. Any USB compliant operating system will automatically install it. It will enumerate as a Generic Hub which uses the USB Hub Class Driver that is built into USB compliant operating systems such as Linux (including Mac OS X) and Windows.

TRU-ISO™ STATEMENT

ACCES Tru-Iso™ products are designed under IPC-2221B Generic Standard on Printed Board Design. The circuit is isolated with a ≥ 300mil gap between all signal and plane layers between the upstream port and the downstream ports. This gap is rated under IPC-2221B at a peak working voltage of 1500V (Upstream to Downstream). Our circuit uses a chip-level high-frequency DC-DC isolator which is rated at 5000VRMS for 1 minute under UL 1577 optical isolators standard. This isolation component has an over 50-year isolation lifespan even if the isolation voltage potential is in excess of 846 volts AC. Tru-Iso™ products are also designed to meet the EN60601 medical electrical equipment standard.
