How to choose the industrial USB Hub for your devices, people is looking for the USB HUB which require the high power usb hub and support multi-ports usb extension from the computer. You need to know the below infos( 1. What is the USB and USB Version? 2. What is the USB HUB？ What is the Industrial USB HUB? )
First, let us know about the USB Definition.
What is the USB?
A USB hub is a device that expands a single Universal Serial Bus (USB) port into several so that there are more ports available to connect devices to a host system, similar to a power strip. All devices connected through a USB hub share the bandwidth available to that hub.

USB, short for Universal Serial Bus, is a standard type of connection for many different kinds of devices.
Generally, USB refers to the types of cables and connectors used to connect these many types of external devices to computers.
There have been three major USB standards, 3.1 being the newest:
USB 3.1: Called Superspeed+, USB 3.1 compliant devices are able to transfer data at 10 Gbps (10,240 Mbps).
Ultra high speed + . USB 3.1 GEN2 has a theoretical greatest speed of 10 gbps, twice that of USB 3.0.
- USB 3.0: Called SuperSpeed USB, USB 3.0 compliant hardware can reach a greatest transmission rate of 5 Gbps (5,120 Mbps).
USB 3.0 can support up to 5.0 gbps, 10 times faster than USB 2.0’s 480 mbps greatest theoretical speed. USB 3.0 sockets are usually blue; the USB 3.0 hub can external hard drives, USB drives, or blu-ray recorders will great reduce data transfer time.
- USB 2.0: Called High-Speed USB, USB 2.0 compliant devices can reach a greatest transmission rate of 480 Mbps.
- USB 1.1: Called Full Speed USB, USB 1.1 devices can reach a greatest transmission rate of 12 Mbps.
Most USB devices and cables today adhere to USB 2.0, and a growing number to USB 3.0.
- USB Type C: Often referred to simplyas USB-C, these plugs and receptacles are rectangular in shape with four rounded corners. Only USB 3.1 Type C plugs and receptacles (and thus cables) exist but adapters for backward compatibility with USB 3.0 and 2.0 connectors are available.
- USB Type A: Officiallycalled USB Standard-A, these plugs and receptacles are rectangular in shape and are the most commonlyseen USB connectors. USB 1.1 Type A, USB 2.0 Type A and USB 3.0 Type A plugs and receptacles are physically compatible.
- USB Type B: Officiallycalled USB Standard-B, these plugs and receptacles are square shaped with an extra notch on top, most noticeable on USB 3.0 Type B connectors. USB 1.1 Type B and USB 2.0 Type B plugs are physicallycompatible with USB 3.0 Type B receptacles but USB 3.0 Type B plugs are not compatible with USB 2.0 Type B or USB 1.1 Type B receptacles.
- A USB Powered-B connector is also specified in the USB 3.0 standard. This receptacle is physicallycompatible with USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 Standard-B plugs, and of course, USB 3.0 Standard-B and Powered-B plugs as well.
- USB Micro-A: USB 3.0 Micro-A plugs look like two different rectangular plugs fused together, one slightlylonger than the other. USB 3.0 Micro-A plugs are only compatible with USB 3.0 Micro-AB receptacles.
- USB 2.0 Micro-A plugs are very small and rectangular in shape, resembling in many ways a shrunken USB Type A plug. USB Micro-A plugs are physicallycompatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 Micro-AB receptacles.
- USB Micro-B: USB 3.0 Micro-B plugs look almost identical to USB 3.0 Micro-A plugs in that they appear as two individual, but connected, plugs. USB 3.0 Micro-B plugs are compatible with both USB 3.0 Micro-B receptacles and USB 3.0 Micro-AB receptacles.
- USB 2.0 Micro-B plugs are very small and rectangular but the two corners on one of the long sides are beveled. USB Micro-B plugs are physicallycompatible with both USB 2.0 Micro-B and Micro-AB receptacles, as well as USB 3.0 Micro-B and Micro-AB receptacles.
- USB Mini-A: The USB 2.0 Mini-A plug is rectangular in shape but one side is more rounded. USB Mini-A plugs are only compatible with USB Mini-AB receptacles. There is no USB 3.0 Mini-A connector.
- USB Mini-B: The USB 2.0 Mini-B plug is rectangular in shape with a small indention on either side, almost looking like a stretched out piece of bread when looking at it head-on. USB Mini-B plugs are physicallycompatible with both USB 2.0 Mini-B and Mini-AB receptacles. There is no USB 3.0 Mini-B connector.
