B+B SmartWorx adds super-speed hubs to offerings

Hubs offer enhanced reliability under most conditions.

B+B SmartWorx powered by Advantech has announced two additions to its industrial super speed USB 3.0 hub family with the BB-USH204 and BB-USH207, 4-port and 7-port industrial USB 3.0 hubs respectively.

The new USB 3.0 hubs offer a way to expand current USB capabilities by providing additional external USB 3.0 ports from a single USB 3.0 host connection—all with speeds up to 5 Gbps.

According to B+B SmartWorx, the BB-USH204 and BB-USH207 hubs provide reliability under almost any condition and can be securely mounted to most surfaces. Fully-compliant with the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 specification, these industrial USB hubs are also backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.x specifications for simultaneous support of older USB peripherals, even older systems without USB capabilities.

Additional features include:

  • USB 3.0 speeds up to 5 Gbps
  • 900 mA downstream power on each port
  • Heavy-duty metal case with DIN and panel mount options
  • 15 KV ESD protection

“USB 3.0 industrial, rugged hubs offer distinct technical advantages over other models,” said B+B SmartWorx Product Manager Brian Foster. “Top advantages include a higher bandwidth and higher power, such as the 900 mA downstream power on each port and speeds up to 5 Gbps with our new BB-USH204 and BB-USH207 models.”
