    The software is compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux, making it versatile across various platforms. It supports an unlimited number of Managed USB Hubs, allowing users to connect multiple Hubs to a single host computer or cascade them in sequence.

    Rugged and Reliable

    The Industrial USB Hub features a rugged heavy-duty metal enclosure designed to shield the hub from potential damage caused by accidental drops or sudden impacts. Moreover, it protects against Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) with 15kV air and 8kV contact Level-4 ESD protection. This robust construction ensures resiliency in demanding industrial environments, providing peace of mind for users in situations where durability and reliability are paramount.

    Power Flexibility

    The USB Hub offers power flexibility to cater to diverse user needs. It features a terminal block power input that supports a wide voltage range from +7 to 48 volts DC, ensuring compatibility with various power sources.
