General description:

The U16S-RM product (order code: U16S-RM-USB3) offers 16 downstream managed-USB ports for USB2.0 or USB3.0 devices. The upstream connection is 5Gbps.

The U16S-RM lets you transfer data between a USB3.0 host computer and multiple USB3.0 devices many times quicker than using a traditional USB2.0 hub.

In order to realise the benefits of USB3.0 all devices in the data ‘chain’ must support USB3.0 ie. The host computer, the USB cable, the hub and the device.

With an internal 320W power supply, and each port offering 2.4A (12W), you have the power to fast-charge your USB devices too. U16S-RM offers universal charging and its device charging profiles can be updated should new charging profiles appear on the market or if we add new features. Updating the firmware is quick (and free of charge) and we supply our FW Updater App for this purpose. Some USB chargeable devices do not comply with any documented charging standards and if this is discovered its generally a quick process for Cambrionix engineers to add or modify a profile and supply a firmware update to download onto your Cambrionix product.

Internally, the U16S-RM uses the highest grade USB3.0 hub controllers from Fresco Logic and SMSC. We couple these to our proprietary control electronics and internal processor to provide us with full monitoring and control over the system. This, coupled with our on-board firmware and host-side software enables our API to work seamlessly.

The U16S-RM supports our application programming interface (API) which allows you to automate, monitor and control each port programatically. With the API you can monitor current consumption of each individual port, total connection time, charging time, control the 48x front panel LEDs (3 per port), turn power on/off to individual ports, emulate different charging profiles, read USB VID/PID and much more.

The API is available as a free download and is updated regularly and well documented.

We also supply our Live Viewer App which allows you to monitor and control ports using a graphical user interface.

The API consists of a service module or daemon that is loaded on the host computer. The service module is accessed via JSON-RPC calls over a TCP/IP socket. Cambrionix provides sample Python code complete with the necessary JSON library code to be able to make the necessary calls for controlling Cambrionix products that are connected to the host computer.

It is of course possible to access the API from any programming environment that has support for making JSON-RPC calls over a TCP/IP socket.

“Having full control over our USB3.0 ports via the Cambrionix API has been essential for our internal processes to work properly. Where we would normally have to unplug a cable, we now just automate this using the API and perform the same task electrically. This means less operator touch-time. We can also monitor battery performance over time.”

To use the U16S-RM, simply connect to a USB3.0 enabled host and connect your USB devices – they will then be seen by whatever software your host is using. Or, if you are a more advanced user, download our API for full port control and monitoring.

U16S-RM (order code: U16S-RM-USB3) is available without an MOQ and volume discounts are available at 50+ units.
