Lack of a trusty USB3.1 Hub in astrophotography market, triggered us to develop a USB3 Hub controller which will be also able to switch ON/OFF each USB port.
We proudly present the Pegasus Astro – USB Control Hub (in short UCH) which is now available from all of Pegasus Astro dealers
A SuperSpeed (SS), low power, switchable USB3.1 Gen1 hub and fully compliant with USB-IF’s USB 3.1 Gen1 specification . The Hub supports Hi-Speed (HS), Full Speed (FS) and Low Speed (LS).
Device has 6 x USB 3.1 Ports. Each port can deliver up to 2.5Amp of current. There is a smart current limit sensor in every port which automatically limits or cuts power in case of a short-wire or power consumption that is above 2.5Amps. Each port is monitored by the USB Controller and in case of a current limit, it triggers a warning popup in the operating system.
Industrial grade temperature support
Most USB Hubs in the market (well…nearly all of them) can operate under room temperatures as they were designed to work inside your cozy warm room. This is why you might experience USB disconnects and instability during a cold night.
Our product is certified to work flawlessly from −40°C to +85°C. The USB Hub chip has been selected to support Industrial grade temperature ranges.
Switchable USB Ports
Each USB port can be controller and switched ON/OFF by our standalone software. (power + data). You are going to love this feature. No more pull out and re-plug USB cables of your equipment.
12V DC Operation
The 12V DC operation was our first design requirement. As most of your astro-equipment work with 12V DC why to use something different?
Hub accepts 12-14V of operation. This means that you can plug unregulated 12V power from a battery.
External Accessories Port
Unit supports external expansion port which will allow the connectivity of new products such as power distribution / motor focus control etc.
