By PSW Staff • September 22, 2009 The USB HUB4 is available in two versions: AAP and MAAP Extron Electronics has announce that the new USB HUB4, Four-Port USB 2.0 Hub for architectural mount applications is now shipping. The USB HUB4 allows the sharing of up to four USB devices on a single host port and is available in two versions: AAP – Architectural Adapter Plate and MAAP – Mini Architectural Adapter Plate. It streamlines integration by eliminating the need for separate USB Host ports and their cables, and is ideal for any environment where multiple USB devices must share a single USB port. “A/V integrators often face the challenge of where to mount a USB hub in lecterns, A/V control desks, and other architectural applications,” says Casey Hall, Extron Vice President of Sales and Marketing for North America. “The USB HUB4 provides a simple, elegant solution for USB connectivity in boardrooms, classrooms, and similar environments.” For integration flexibility, the USB HUB4 is equipped with both USB “Mini” Type B and captive screw host inputs. The captive screw input is ideal for installation in lecterns, junction boxes, and other space-constrained applications. The USB HUB4 also provides 5V, 500mA on each output, delivering power to multiple peripherals such as mass storage devices, keyboards, mice, or other HID – Human Interface Devices. Both versions of the USB HUB4 are designed to mount easily in Cable Cubby furniture-mountable access enclosures, HSA – Hideaway Surface Access enclosures, AVTrac floor-mounted raceway for A/V connectivity, wallplates, and other products that accept a double space AAP or MAAP.
