With its 12 Mbps speed, the USB hub can consolidate a full range of lowspeed andhigh-speedperipherals to provide desktop and notebook computer connectivity. It complies fully with the USB specification Rev 1.1 and HID Class Definition Rev 1.0.

The USB hub is designed for use with an iMac or PC (with Windows 98 or higher) that has a USB host controller installed on the computer.

Tiered Star Topology — supports up to 127 physical devices. Connected devices can be of either low speed (1.5 Mbps) or full speed (12 Mbps).

Power Options — operates on its own power (withlow-powerconsumption devices) or bus power.

Over-Current Protection — protects device connected to each downstream port when current exceeds 500 mA in self powered mode.

Auto-DetectSpeeds and Device Connections —let you use the USB hub with a wide array of devices.

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using your USB hub.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

Bus Fault Detection and Recovery — overcurrent protection automatically turns power off in cases of excessive current. The USB hub is automatically reset when it recognizes an attached device or is prompted by a reconfiguration program.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

INSTALLATION

Use the supplied 5-voltDC,2.5-AmpAC adapter to power the USB hub.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power source that supplies 5 volts DC and delivers at least 2.5 Amps. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the USB hub's 5VDC 2.5A jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the USB hub or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the USB hub before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the USB hub.

1.Plug the supplied AC adapter's barrel plug into the 5VDC 2.5A jack on the rear of the USB hub.

2.Plug the larger end of the AC adapter into a standard AC outlet.

3.Plug the supplied USB cable's B-typeconnector into theHOST port on the rear of the USB hub.

4.Plug the supplied USB cable's A-typeconnector into the PC's host port.

5.Connect up to four USB devices to the ports on the front of the USB hub. The green indicators on the USB’s front panel light if the corresponding USB ports are ready for use.

Warnings:

If the AC adapter is disconnected from the AC outlet during operation or the USB device draws too much current or shorts, the affected port’s light goes out, and Windows sends you a “USB Hub Current Limit Exceeded” message. To reset the port, unplug the device from the affected port and click Reset on the error

message. (Do not click Close or the hub will no longer function.) The port’s indicator lights. You can now reconnect a device to the port.

If your operating system does not display an error message, you can reset the port by unplugging the device from the port then unplugging the hub from your PC. Plug the hub back into your PC and then plug the device back into the port. The port’s indicator lights.

Power Indicator

Your USB hub has two power modes: self-poweredand bus powered. The power mode is automatically selected when the AC adapter’s plug is connected to, or disconnected from, the USB hub’s power jack.

In the self-powered mode, the USB hub provides all four downstream ports with 5VDC 500 mA (maximum) power for each port. When power is securely connected, the red POWER indicator and the green port indicators light.

In bus-powered mode, the USB hub provides all four downstream ports with total 5VDC 500 mA (maximum) for all ports. When the USB hub uses bus power, the green POWER indicator and the green port indicators light.

The USB hub’s overcurrent protection automatically disconnects power in cases of excessive current and the red POWER indicator goes off. You can reset the USB hub by unplugging the USB cable and then pluging it back in, or by clicking Reset if your operating system sends you an error message.

Q: Why won’t my USB camera (or other USB device) work through the USB hub?

A: Make sure the driver for the device is installed on your PC, the device’s power is connected, and the USB hub’s AC power adapter is properly connected. If all three conditions are met and the USB hub still does not detect the device, disconnect and reconnect the device to the USB hub.

Q: Why won’t the green indicator on the front of the USB hub light?

A: When a connected device attempts to draw more current than the USB hub can handle, the USB hub automatically cuts off power. Reset the USB hub by disconnecting and reconnecting the USB device(s).

Q: Can I use the USB hub without its AC adapter?

A: Yes, if you connect it to alow-powerconsumption device, such as a mouse, joystick, or keyboard.

CARE

Keep the USB hub dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Use and store the USB hub only in normal temperature environments. Handle the USB hub carefully; do not drop it. Keep the USB hub away from dust and dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.

Modifying or tampering with the USB hub’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your USB hub is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
