Digi International announced the addition of four new products to its USB Plus Series of powered USB connectivity solutions, including the Hubport/4c+, a new compact hub with four USB PlusPower ports, and the Hubport/PCI+ LP family, which has three low profile PCI cards with USB PlusPower ports.

According to the press release, the USB Plus series is the most extensive line of powered USB connectivity solutions available and is designed to simplify retail operations by allowing powered USB peripheral devices to be used with a standard, low-cost PC.

Stephen Popovich, GM and VP of Inside Out Networks, a division of Digi, commented, "The new low profile PCI cards enable powered USB deployment in even smaller PC platforms to further reduce space requirements in retail applications. The Hubport/4c+ also minimizes the space necessary for providing powered USB via an external hub."

The press release further states that the USB Plus series is the only powered USB connectivity solution that features power management capabilities. This enables technicians to monitor voltage and turn on and off individual powered USB ports, allowing end users to safely and easily disconnect and reconnect high-wattage devices, the company added.

Available in card and external hub solutions, each product offers four powered USB ports that are compatible with both standard and powered USB devices.
