Moxa USB 2.0 hubs first to receive USB-IF certification

Taipei, Taiwan, Mar 20, 2009— Moxa is pleased to announce that its new line of industrial-grade USB hubs, the UPort™ 200 and 400 series, are the world's first to receive USB-IF certification for reliable peripheral plug-and-play devices. The hubs are designed to provide true USB 2.0 Hi-Speed 480 Mbps data transmission through each port, even for heavy-load applications. As USB-IF certified products, the UPort™ 200 and 400 series have passed high speed compliance testing and are eligible to bear the official USB logo.

The UPort™ 200 and 400 series are external plug-and-play hubs that can be plugged into a standard USB port for instant peripheral device connectivity. For industrial networks, high reliability can never be compromised. As defined by the USB-IF (USB Implementers Forum), certification for Moxa's UPort™ USB hubs guarantees:

1. 480 Mbps USB 2.0 transmissions
2. Device accessibility
3. 100% power for connected devices
4. High-speed operation from suspend mode

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can be as severe as over one thousand volts with a high rise time (dv/dt) breaking through the junction layer of protective devices. To guard against serious damage, the UPort™ 200 and 400 series have doubled ESD protection from Level 2 (4KV) to Level 4 (8KV), offering 8 KV of ESD contact protection and 15 KV ESD of air protection. For industrial applications that need to operate under harsh conditions and extreme temperatures ranging anywhere from -40 to 85°C, the UPort™ 404-T and UPort™ 407-T models provide wide temperature support.
