Scale to meet your needs.
Our USB hubs enable you to scale, by connecting large numbers of devices while delivering high speed data transfer and syncing and charge.
More devices connected
If you want to connect and sync more than 15 mobile devices, multiple USB hubs can be connected together with (either in a star topology or daisy-chained) to allow more devices to be managed from a single host computer simultaneously.
This enables you to sync (data transfer) information to multiple end devices using multiple USB hubs, all controlled from one single host computer.
Each of our hubs uses a number of the available USB devices and as a result impacts on the number of connected devices available.
A single USB Host Controller can allow up to 127 (27 – 1 Host Controller) connected devices. This a USB specification imposed and refers to the 7 bit addressing used with USB.
The total number of USB endpoints allowed is dependent on the USB Host Controller and its firmware, however, this number is typically 96 USB endpoints. Read more about the endpoint limitation in our article here.
Each managed USB hub needs to be connected to mains power individually and the first hub in the chain should be connected to the local computer through the hub’s host port.
Five additional hub can be attached to the downstream USB ports of the first hub by their host ports as shown in the graphic across.
This star topology allows you to connect up to 85 devices for charging and syncing from a single computer.
Alternatively, a simpler daisy-chain arrangement can be used for connecting two hubs, allowing 29 devices to be managed from a single host computer.
Up to six ThunderSync3-16s can be daisy-chained to a single host computer, allowing data to be transferred at 5Gbps to over 96 mobile devices.
ThunderSync and desktop products
Another option is to connect a ThunderSync2-16 to four desktop products to achieve charge and syncing of up to 72 devices, as shown in the diagram example.
Safe, reliable charging
Our products are independently tested.
Certification and safety standards are incredibly important with electrical products.
