LINDY USB 3.0 Hub Withstands the Rigours of Industrial Life

7 Port USB 3.0 Hub connects power hungry peripherals in challenging environments

We announced today the LINDY 7 Port Industrial USB 3.0 Hub designed especially to deliver a consistently reliable SuperSpeed performance in the most demanding environments.

Capable of withstanding temperatures up to 65°C, the hub is built within a robust metal housing with high EMC protection to ward off interference from electrical equipment. It consists of seven USB 3.0 downstream ports and one upstream port and comes complete with a multi-country screw-in power supply and a 0.8m length USB 3.0 cable.

“Hubs are an easy way to expand a system’s USB capabilities, but the average one that sits on the office desk is no match for the hot, hostile and dusty of industrial applications,” says Tony Jamieson, General Manager of LINDY Australia. “Our latest hub provides not just the ruggedized housing required to survive these conditions, but also delivers the full 900mA power to all ports ensuring power hungry peripherals operate seamlessly.”

The hub is backward compatible, allowing for older USB 2.0 and even 1.1 peripherals to be used and supports both USB 3.0 equipped PCs and Macs. Integrated brackets allow for the hub to be surface mounted or attached to equipment racks.
