The Pegasus Astro USB Control Hub (in short UCH).

A SuperSpeed (SS), low power, switchable USB3.1 Gen1 hub and fully compliant with USB-IF´s USB 3.1 Gen1 specification. The hub supports Hi-Speed (HS), Full Speed (FS) and Low Speed (LS). The new SuperSpeed hubs operates in parallel with the USB 2.0 controllers, so that 5 Gbps SuperSpeed data transfers are not affected by slower USB 2.0 traffic.

6 x USB3.1 Active Ports:
This device has 6 x USB 3.1 Ports. All ports are backwards compatible with USB 1.0 and USB 2.0 devices. In addition to this, each port can deliver up to 2.5 A of current. There is a smart current limit sensor in every port which automatically limits or cuts power in case of a short-wire or power consumption that is above 2.5 A. Each port is monitored by the USB controller and in case of a current limit, it triggers a warning popup in the operating system.

Aluminum Enclosure:
A high quality robust, blue anodised aluminum enclosure houses the electronics of the USB hub. The metal enclosure designed and tested to survive ±5 kV ESD strikes

Switchable USB Ports:
Each USB port can be controlled and switched ON/OFF by Pegasus Astro´s standalone software (power + data). You are going to love this feature. No more pull out and re-plug USB cables of your equipment.

12 V DC Operation:
The 12 V DC operation was Pegasus Astro´s first design requirement. As most of your astro-equipment work with 12 V DC why to use something different?

The Hub accepts 12-14 V for operation. This means that you can plug unregulated 12V power from a battery.

Industrial grade temperature support:
Most USB hubs in the market (well, nearly all of them) operate under room temperatures as they were design to work inside your cosy warm room. This is one of the reasons why you experience USB disconnects and instability during a cold night.

This product is certified to work flawlessly from -40 °C to +85 °C. All USB hub electronics has been selected to support industrial grade temperature ranges.

ASCOM Switch support:
Device fully supports ASCOM switch. This means that you can switch ON/OFF each USB port via ASCOM supported software.

Expansion Port (EXT):
An RJ12 external ports allows future device expansion.

Standalone Software:
Switch ON/OFF USB Ports on demand. Monitor USB voltage levels. Easily name each USB port based on the device that is attached on it.
