The uGate-401F is an industrial USB hub supporting USB 2.0 Full-Speed 12Mbps. It supports -40 to 85°C operating temperature and equipped with ±8KV ESD level 4 protection circuit to withstand the extreme environment. When an external power supply is connected, each port can provide 500mA power to the USB devices. Wide range of external power can be supplied from 12 to 48 volt.
The users can use the adapter or the terminal block to supply power to the system. When one of the power supply is broken, it will get the power from the other source. Therefore, uGate series are suitable and will operate stable in the industrial environment. (USB Low-Speed not supported.)
Provides Digital Isolation
- The uGate F series supports ±5KV digital isolation. This feature replaces existing opto-isolation. It has ±5KV isolation and can protect from ±10KV surge to prevent damages to the devices. The opto-isolation is based on LED, which is has limits regarding current, temperature and product life that can cause inconsistent signal output. The digital isolation was applied to resolve these issues for more stable operation in an environment with constant noises.
Industrial Grade Operating Temperature
- The uGate-401F supports operating temperature from -40 to 85°C (by IEC60068-2-33 temperature cycle) and pass the IEC60068-2-30 temperature and humidity environment test. It provides stable operation in tough environment for industrial use.
- Most of the surge, the rapid increase in electrical current or voltage shock, comes from the power cable. When there are weak surge that occurs often, it will deteriorate the components. The strong surge will break the circuit that will be not be recoverable. Most surge occurs by lightening. It can also be generated by an electrical actuator. The main source of the surge occurrences cannot be eliminated therefore some method of protection is required to prevent this problem. uGate series are equipped with built-in surge protection that will withstand and protect the internal or external device from 400W surge in 10/1000 ㎲ peak pulse.
- The ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) occurs by a person or other sources which is cause of the deterioration or destruction of the electronic components. In order to prevent this, uGate series has built-in ESD protection based on IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD Level 4 Protection) to resist electrostatic discharge of ±4KV by contact or ±8KV by air.
