UPort 404/UPort 407

4 and 7-port industrial-grade USB hubs


Introduction

The global positioning system manufacturing process is complicated and highly technical. The last and most important stage in the process is integrated testing for quality assurance. Before they are packaged, new global positioning systems are connected by USB to diagnostic equipment that runs an integrated testing program to test product functions.

Integrated testing in the global positioning system manufacturing process requires zero fault tolerance. One of our customers encountered a testing quality problem but was unsure whether the testing failure was caused by an unreliable USB hub or the global positioning system. The client came to Moxa looking for an industrial USB hub solution to connect host and diagnostic equipment to ensure reliable data transmission.
