Lack of a trusty USB3.1 Hub in astrophotography market, triggered us to develop a USB3 Hub controller which will be also able to switch ON/OFF each USB port.

We proudly present 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 operate in parallel with the USB 2.0 controller, so 5 Gbps SuperSpeed data transfers are not affected by slower USB 2.0 traffic.

6 x USB3.1 Active Ports
Device has 6 x USB 3.1 Ports. All ports are backwards compatible with USB 1.0 and USB 2.0 devices. Moreover, each port can deliver up to 2.5Amps 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 2.5Amps. Each port is monitored by the USB Controller and in case of a current limit, it triggers a warning popup in the operating system.

Aluminium Enclosure
A high quality robust, blue anodised aluminium enclosure houses the electronics of the USB Hub. The metal enclosure designed and tested to survive ±5kV ESD strikes

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

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

Hub accepts 12-14V of 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.

Our 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)
A 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
