Industrial-Grade USB 3.1 Gen 2 Hub Adds up to 4 USB Devices to Your Computer.This four-port USB 3.1 Gen 2 hub with a heavy-duty all-metal housing connects directly to the USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port on your computer, laptop, tablet, MacBook, Ultrabook or Chromebook. It allows you to use as many as four USB devices, such as flash drives, tablets, smartphones, external hard drives, printers, barcode scanners and digital cameras. The durable iron housing withstands harsh physical conditions in industrial and commercial applications, such as factories, construction sites, supply rooms and warehouses. Transfers Data at Lightning-Fast USB 3.1 Gen 2 Speeds and Charges Mobile Devices All four USB ports transfer data at speeds up to 10 Gbps, which is twice as fast as USB 3.1 Gen 1. In addition to accepting USB peripherals, the two USB-C and two USB-A ports provide up to 0.9 amps each for charging and powering mobile devices simultaneously. Because the ports are BC 1.2-compliant, they can deliver up to 2 amps of fast-charging power to mobile devices (when connected to power). USB-C Ports Help Prevent Your Devices from Becoming Disconnected The hub's USB-C ports, including the host port, support USB cables with locking connectors that can prevent devices and peripherals from accidentally coming loose. All USB-C and USB-A ports are backward compatible with previous USB generations, so you can continue using older peripherals while getting high-speed performance from new devices. Protects Your Devices against Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and Overcurrent Machines on the shop floor can generate electrostatic discharges, wiping out data and damaging sensitive electronics. This four-port hub includes ESD protection to 15 kV, reducing potential static damage to your connected peripherals. This feature works in tandem with 2.5kV-per-port overcurrent protection to safeguard your connected devices against damage and data loss from power surges. Reversible USB-C Cable Connects in Either Direction Connect the included two-foot USB-C cable between your source device's USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port and the hub's host port. The fumble-free USB-C plugs connect in either direction to ensure fast, easy connection every time. Plug-and-Play Hub Offers Flexible Power and Mounting Options The U460-2A2C-IND requires no software or drivers to download and install. You can power the unit by connecting the included power adapter to a standard AC outlet, or you can use the included 2-wire terminal block to draw power from a power terminal. The hub mounts easily to a wall using the built-in brackets and user-supplied hardware. TAA-Compliant for GSA Schedule Purchases The U460-2A2C-IND is compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA), which makes it eligible for GSA (General Services Administration) Schedule and other federal procurement contracts.
