Interworld supplies a range of Industrial Grade USB Hubs, Isolators and Extenders that allow USB products to be protected in rugged environments and placed up to 40m away from the host PC. Firewire extenders are also available.
USB Hubs / Isolators: Industrial grade features that are not found in commercial grade hubs such as High-Retention USB Connectors and Optical Isolation.
USB Extenders: USB Extenders allow USB products to be placed up to 40m away from the host PC. Most USB extenders use CAT5 twisted pair cable to extend the range of conventional USB devices.
Firewire Extenders: FireWire Extenders extends FireWire device cables up to 279 feet using CATx twisted pair cable.
Compact USB Port Isolator: Any time you connect remote I/O equipment to your computer there is a risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD), power surges, ground loops, and electromagnetic interference (EMI/RFI). With the UH201 connected directly to your USB port you can provide up to 2000 Volt protection
Industrial USB Isolators: The UHR401 and UHR402 are Single and Dual Port Ruggedized USB Isolators designed and tested to meet heavy industrial EMC standards. The UHR Series provide 4 kV isolation between upstream and downstream USB ports.
Single Port USB Optical Isolators: The UH401 Series USB optical isolators provide protection against electrical noise, surges and spikes. Providing up to 4kV isolation the UH401 Series will protect expensive USB PCs and equipment from damaging electrical storms, power surges and other high EMI/RFI disturbances
