The UH104 is a compact, Industrial Grade Four Port USB 2.0 Hub. It has High
Retention USB connectors that work with standard USB cables to ensure a
tight connection in high vibration applications – requiring up to 3.4 lbs-force
to disconnect them. It provides true USB 2.0 data transmission through each
port, even during heavy load applications. The UH104 is a plug-and-play device,
meaning that there are no additional drivers to load. The hub is bus-powered entirely by your high power USB port, leaving your
installation uncluttered by power cabling. As a bus powered device, it provides 100
mA of power to downstream peripherals. This is adequate for most applications.
The compact polycarbonate plastic enclosure comes equipped with mounting
brackets that you can use to secure it to a panel, counter top, or other flat surface.
A standard USB cable is required to connect it to your PC.
Industrial EMC specifications make this hub more robust than office grade products.

USB has become the standard for connecting everything from sensors to
controllers and motor drives to your PC or hand held computer. But USB was not
intended for use outside of the electrically clean office or home environment. This
can lead to expensive problems when you need to access data from a device
installed in the field or in the factory. Any time you connect remote I/O equipment
to your computer there is a risk for electrostatic discharge (ESD) or transient
surges. Either could damage your USB port or your entire PC. Why take a chance?
Protect your investment with this handy one-port USB surge suppressor.
The compact USBSSP2 fits easily inside your laptop case or pocket. It has a
captive cable with a Type A USB plug on one end and a USB Type A jack on
the other. It connects directly to your USB port and provides a protection from
transient surges while supporting high speed USB 2.0 communications.

Isolation zones
explained
by Brian Foster
Transients follow the path of least resistance, and a tiny gap between circuit
board traces is an easy path for surges to reach the delicate computer bus,
bypassing expensive isolation components entirely. You’ll find wide isolation
zones on B&B Electronics’ serial isolators such as the 485OPDR, 485OPRi, &
485OPDRI-PH. If you’re buying products from someone else, hold them up to the
light and check the isolation zones, you might not be getting the protection that
you’re paying for - and need.
Things To consider
Isolated serial card design requires attention
to three things:
#1. Special optocouplers isolate the serial signals from the PCI bus.
#2. Isolated DC-to-DC power supply
provides power to each of the ports
and port-to-port isolation.
#3. The circuit board uses strict spacing rules – we call these isolation zones.

Why offer “optional” power supplies with port
powered converters?
Simply put, all RS-232 ports are not created equal. Many
laptop PC’s for example, deliberately reduce power to
the RS-232 port to save the battery. Our port-powered
converters are designed to squeeze every milliwatt out of
your RS-232 port, but if you are working at the distance
limits of RS-422 or 485, you might need an extra boost.
For the majority of applications though, port power is all
our efficient converters need to get the job done. We just
want to be sure that you’re covered, no matter what.

Why Automatic Send Data control makes serial
conversion easier
As operating systems become more complex, it is
increasingly difficult to control an RS-485 driver with
standard software and the RTS line. This is especially true
in Windows and multi-tasking operating systems. With
B&B’s Automatic Send Data Control circuit, driver control is
in the converter hardware, so you don’t have to work with
software at all. The circuit monitors data flow and enables
the driver during transmission and automatically disables
it when no data is being sent. There is no need to rework
software or install new drivers. Most B&B Electronics
RS-232 to RS-485 converters and RS-485 serial cards
include Automatic Send Data Control.

Technical Support Note
Isolation zones explained
Isolation design requires attention to three things:
#1. Optocouplers isolate serial signals from the PCI bus.
#2. Isolated DC-to-DC power supply provides power to each of the
ports and port-to-port isolation.
#3. The circuit board uses strict spacing rules – we call these
isolation zones.
Surges follow the path of least resistance, and a tiny gap between circuit board traces
is an easy path for surges to reach the delicate computer bus, bypassing expensive
isolation components entirely. You’ll find wide isolation zones on B&B Electronics’
3PCI series of isolated universal PCI cards. If you’re buying boards from someone else,
hold them up to the light and check the isolation zones, you might not be getting the
protection that you’re paying for - and need.

Isolation vs. Surge Suppression for Serial Communications
We all know that serial data communications lines can carry damaging
electrical transients caused by anything from ground loops to lightning
strikes. The question is – what do we do about it? Should we put a
surge suppressor on the data lines or insert an optical isolator into
the equations? In all actuality, it may be wise to use a little of both. A
surge suppressor directs high voltage transients safely to ground. But
if the ground line rises, as it does in ground loop situations, you need
isolation.
Isolators stop transients by converting data signals to either pulses
of light or an electrical field, then back again. Data passes through;
transients don’t. But a sufficiently powerful transient can damage the
isolator. Optical isolation operates by bringing data into an isolation
module and converting it into a light signal using a light emitting diode
(LED). This signal is picked up by a photo diode receptor within the
same isolation module and converted back into its original form.
A surge suppressor shunts a transient to ground before it reaches and
destroys your equipment. They use Transient Voltage Suppressors,
Metal Oxide Varistors, or gas discharge tubes that “turn on” at a set
point called the “clamping voltage” and provide a low impedance path
to ground. A good data line surge suppressor should begin conducting
current at a voltage as close as possible above the system's normal
communications level. For RS-422 and RS-485 systems, the voltage
rating selected is typically 5 to 7 Volts; in RS-232 systems 12 - 15
volt devices are appropriate. A word of caution though; these devices
typically add some capacitive load to the data lines. This should be
considered when designing a system by reducing the line length.
Several hundred feet is usually an adequate figure in RS-422 and
RS-485 systems.

Locked Serial Numbers Explained
We configure our single-port USB to serial converters in two ways. In standard format,
each product has a unique serial number. “Locked serial” format uses the same serial
number that is associated with a model type.
TTL3USB9M
If your converter will always be used with the same computer, the standard serialized
model is all you need. If the converter is shared among several computers, like field
service laptops, the locked serial number model lets you plug and play without having
to worry about matching the two.

USB Isolators - Small Cost, Big Isolation
Protection against harmful noise, ground loops, surges & spikes
These USB isolators are tested in unfriendly electrical environments – near variable frequency drives,
motor control centers, welding, and other large electrical loads. Use where a USB host and peripheral
device operate at different ground potentials or to eliminate supply noise from USB host. High retention
USB connectors grip regular USB cables tight requiring up to 3.2 lbs force to disconnect them – perfect
for high vibration.
Protect your laptop at factory or remote location calls with small form factor versions that fit easily inside
your laptop case or pocket and connect directly to your USB port.

The Challenge:
Resource Services integrates programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and
touch screens with machines to control machine operations in industrial
plants for automation and motion control, and in water and wastewater
systems for data collection and automation/control.
In order to install software and firmware updates, one of Premier’s Field
Service Technicians connected a USB adapter to interface the laptop
and the machine. Things were going well until his laptop battery needed
charging and he plugged it in. The industrial machine’s controls were
hooked up to the customer’s 120 Volt, single-phase power supply in
the shop. Unfortunately, the neutral and hot leads to the controls on the
machine had been reversed to stop the 120 Volt GFI breaker from tripping.
The resulting power surge led to a failed hard drive and USB port on the
laptop, as well as a fried USB adapter. (It was an “expensive installation.”)
The Solution:
SSU2-100
Applications: Mobile computing, Field data
collection, Industrial automation, Retail/PoS,
Hospitality, Kiosk, Banking
Allow your laptop or PC to communicate between a USB
port and up to eight serial peripherals. Broaden the range of
computer’s external peripherals. Use in applications where
PCs have a shorter life cycle than the peripherals.
These USB serial converters enumerate as standard COM
ports via a single USB connection enabling system expansion.
No software changes necessary.
USB 2.0 model is fully compatible with USB 1.1 devices. The
older devices work with the new bus, and vice versa.
The 400 series offers software-selectable, independent ports
RS-232, 422, or 485. LEDs indicate which ports are using
which protocol. Feel free to mix and match.
Premier contacted B&B Electronics for help to prevent this from
happening again. For field technicians, laptops are used in a variety
of settings and power quality can be inconsistent. A simple power line
filter didn’t catch the problem. However, using a USB Isolator from B&B
Electronics, will protect the laptop with up to 4 Volts isolation. And,
resultant downtime from unexpected power surges is a thing of the past.

IN THE FIELD
Wireless Well
Monitoring System
Industry: Water Well Monitoring | Product: Spectre 3G WiFi Cellular Router
A Simple Solution for a
Tough Problem
By William H. Conley III
Introduction
The water well location is one of 12 located on a 600-acre
rural development in Southern Arizona. There are many
communities using well water, which is quite typical in the
area. And, whether well systems are large or small, you
can’t take them for granted when you live in the desert. The
consequences of a malfunction anywhere in the system can,
quite literally, be life threatening. At the very least, the kids
won’t be swimming and nobody will be taking showers.
Our well system isn’t new. Increasing demand, aging
components and extreme desert temperatures put a strain on
our motors, cause fuses to blow and force breakers to open. A
large holding tank provides reserve capacity, but it also masks
problems. It can take as long as two days for the tank to drain
and for the water to stop flowing. We needed a sure-fire way
to monitor every part of the well system so that problems
could be headed off before they became catastrophic.
The Challenge
The SOLUTION
A tank farm in Arizona provides water for rural homes far outside
the city limits. Increasing demand, aging components, and extreme
desert temperatures were putting a strain on the pump motors. This
blew fuses, tripped circuit breakers and interrupted service. The
problem forced maintenance staff to return to the tank farm again
and again.
B&B Electronics suggested cellular wireless remote
monitoring as a cost effective solution. B&B Electronics
technicians and engineers developed a remote monitoring
system using a Spectre 3G cellular router in tandem with
Zlinx® wireless I/O and a Zlinx® Xtreme radio modem.
Data like the level of the well system, pump status and
water delivery pressure can be securely monitored
anywhere there is Internet access, and problems can now
be detected and addressed before they get out of hand.
The system includes a 15,000 gallon holding tank, a 1,000 gallon
pressure tank, a well pump, and a pressure pump. A control panel
mounted on the holding tank distributes power to the pumps, and
controls turn the pumps on and off as needed. The large holding
tank provides reserve capacity, but that can mask problems. It can
take as long as two days for the tank to drain and for the water to
stop flowing. This called for remote monitoring and control.

Well System Overview
The Remote Monitoring System
This well site consists of a well pump located at a depth of 700 feet and submerged in
20 feet of water; a 15,000 gallon holding tank, a pressure pump, and a 1,000 gallon
pressure tank that provides water pressure. A control panel distributes power to the
pumps and houses a very simple control system. The controls turn the well pump and
the pressure pump on or off as necessary to fill the holding tank and to pressurize the
pressure tank.
I needed the ability to remotely monitor and control my system. But my home is located
across a road and over 800 feet from the well. If I wanted to get readouts in the
comfort of my living room, I was going to have to design a system that could network
the remote sensors at the well site and get the data to the computer in my home. One
option would have been to hard wire everything, put some cable up on poles, and carry
the data over the road and to my back door.
Float switches monitor the water level in the holding tank. When the level drops about
3,000 gallons, an internal contact closes in the float switches. This energizes the
well pump, which refills the holding tank. Meanwhile, a pressure switch monitors the
pressure tank. The pressure pump forces water from the holding tank into the pressure
tank. The pressure in this tank is a relative indication of how much water is pressurized
and how much water pressure is available to each of the connected homes.
But a much cheaper, easier alternative was available. I went wireless. I connected
my sensors to Zlinx™ Xtreme ZZ9D-NA-LR I/O modules, which are outdoor rated
RF-enabled data acquisition devices and I/O radios. The Zlinx™ wireless I/O system is
modular, allowing you to simply snap on additional I/O to add more analog and digital
inputs and outputs any time you wish to increase monitoring capabilities. The system
provides connectivity to almost any type of sensor, and even supports Modbus. The
I/O radios transmit their data to the Zlinx™ Xtreme ZP9D-115RMLR wireless modem,
which is connected to the heart of the system, a Spectre 3G cellular router.
I wanted to monitor all of the important pieces. This included water level in the holding
tank, AC current drawn from the well and pressure pumps, and the pressure in the
pressure tank.
Wherever practical, I like to use sensors with a conditioned current output (4-20mA).
A current type sensor eliminates most induced noise and can easily support longer
connection lengths. And, it is best to use a sensor/transmitter with a full scale
measurement greater than what is being monitored. In other words, if you plan
on measuring a motor with a max current draw of 20 Amps, you want to select a
current sensor with a full scale of 50 Amps. While you sacrifice some resolution, my
experience has been that it lets you catch potential failure modes that you would miss
if the sensor maxed out at rated load. So I chose 50 Amp current sensors, placing one
on each leg of the incoming 220V power cable. Large current draw is an excellent
indicator of Start or Run capacitors going bad. For monitoring the holding tank water
level, make sure you are using a level ‘Transmitter’, not a level switch or other device.
Sometimes the difference can be confusing. I chose Flowline’s LU12-5001 Level
Transmitter because of the low cost and the fact that it provides a 4-20 mA output
signal with respect to a 4” to 40’ depth detection. Mounting the level sensor was
one of the most difficult parts of the project, as it required mounting the sensor as
well as running conduit to install the wiring.
The pressure sensor outputs a 4-20 mA
current signal with respect to its full scale
measurement of 0-100 psi. It took the place
of an older pressure gauge.
The Spectre 3G cellular router connects to my Zlinx™ Xtreme radio modem, as well
as a security camera. Designed to provide Internet connection for remote equipment
and remote LANs via the cellular telephone network, and equipped with multiple
10/100 Ethernet ports, a USB host port, one binary input/output (I/O) port and dual SIM
card holders, the Spectre 3G collects data from disparate sources and makes all of it
available to me anywhere that I can establish an Internet connection.
(The second SIM card holder provides network redundancy, as the router can
automatically switch between cellular service providers if one connection fails.)
The Spectre 3G supports the creation of VPN tunnels using IPsec, OpenVPN and L2TP.
It supports DHCP, NAT, NAT-T, DynDNS, NTP, VRRP, control by SMS, and numerous
other functions, as well as additional software like SmartCluster, VPN Server and
R-SeeNet. A password-protected Web interface allows users to configure and manage
the Spectre 3G from remote locations. The router can automatically upgrade its
configuration and firmware from the operator’s central server, allowing for simultaneous
mass reconfiguration of multiple routers on a network. Users may insert Linux scripts
and they can create up to four different
configurations for the same router. Examples
would include the SMS and binary input
configurations. Users may switch from one
configuration to another at any time.

EXPERT CORNER
Ruggedizing USB
Connections
for Tough Environments
Ruggedizing USB Power
USB was intended to connect mild-mannered home and office
devices like printers, keyboards, media players, cameras and
external disk drives. And it wouldn’t just connect them; it would
provide 500 mA power as well, in many cases eliminating the
requirement that the peripheral devices include their own power
supplies. In fact, rechargeable devices would be able to use USB
to restore their internal batteries to full power.
Unfortunately, it has turned out that designers and manufacturers
don’t always adhere to the USB specification. And if a USB port
isn’t providing 500 mA, a connected high-power USB device
won’t function properly unless it has an internal power supply.
You can resolve the problems associated with under-powered
USB ports by installing devices like powered USB isolators or
powered USB hubs. They’ll boost the USB signal up to the full
500 mA.
36
Ruggedizing USB for Ground Loops
It’s very useful to be able to connect a remote device via USB.
But the greater the distance between the connected devices,
the more likely it becomes that communicating devices will be
getting their power from different building ground references.
When they do, the USB cable’s ground wire can create a ground
loop path.
In home/office environments the ground loop problem is rarely
an issue. But industrial installations will be far more complex.
Imagine a situation in which a process control system is powered
from a source in one building location, but the front panel is
powered somewhere else. When you connect a PC to the front
panel via USB, powering the PC at the same location, you can
create a ground loop with the process control system, which may
be hundreds of meters away. Magnetic flux from motors or other
high-power devices can use this ground loop to induce current
noise on the ground. If you’re lucky the only result will be data
transmission errors. More extreme events, like surges and voltage
overloads, will burn out integrated circuits and connectors.
Your computers and connected devices should be protected with USB
isolators. Ordinary surge suppression tries to limit spikes between the
signal and ground line. But if the ground line rises, as it does in ground
loop situations, then surge suppression won’t stop it. Isolation allows
the lines to float while keeping the local side at the proper ground and
signal level. An isolator controls electrical flows while simultaneously
ensuring that your data stream is not interrupted. You can deploy
dedicated inline USB isolators as well as USB devices that perform
additional functions while including isolation, like isolated hubs or
serial converters.
Isolation works by changing the nature of both the data signal and the
5 VDC power carried by the USB cable. The data enters the isolator
as an electrical signal, is converted to either pulses of light or an
electrical field, then back to an electrical signal again. The data flow
is uninterrupted, but power surges and ESD are stopped cold at the
isolation zone. The isolator protects against surges and ESD on the
power line by briefly transforming the 5 VDC USB power to AC, through
an isolation transformer, then back to DC again.
Ruggedizing USB Cables
The same easy connection and extraction that makes USB so useful
in an office environment can be a problem when you take USB off the
desktop. Heavy vibration in industrial applications can cause USB
cables to work themselves loose. And because USB carries power, a
loose USB cable can cause arcing – a serious problem in environments
that pose a risk for fire or explosion.
Manufacturers have started to address the problem. One solution
involves connecting USB cables and ports with thumbscrews. But
that requires the use of proprietary cables that aren’t likely to be
available at your neighborhood office supply store. Additionally, the
thumbscrews eliminate one of USB’s most useful features: the ease
with which USB cables can be connected and disconnected.
The high-retention ports used by B&B Electronics, for example, hold a
cable securely enough that it requires 15 Newtons of force (3.4 lbs) to
remove one – so securely, in fact, that they will meet UL requirements
for Class 1/Division 2 Hazardous Locations.
Rugged Range Extension
How Optical Isolation Works
USB has a range limitation of five meters. You can extend the range
up to 30 meters using USB hubs, which also give you an opportunity to
add additional ports. USB hubs designed for home/office are normally
rather flimsy, so install industrial-grade, metal-cased USB hubs that
feature high-retention connectors, versatile mounting, and resistance
to environmental hazards.
Ruggedizing Installations
Consumer-grade USB devices aren’t built for hard use. You’ll want to
deploy better equipment, and you may need to secure it firmly in place.
Look for equipment that can be installed in panels or on DIN rail right
out of the box.
USB failures can be expensive in ways that aren’t as immediately
obvious as a burned out circuit board or connector. Equipment repair
has associated labor costs, but so does reprogramming. And although
it may be hard to quantify, down time costs money, too.
USB is ubiquitous, it’s useful and it’s here to stay. But it isn’t inherently
rugged or reliable. It’s up to you to make it that way.
A more elegant solution employs “high-retention” USB ports. They’ll
work with any cable, and they retain USB’s quick connect/disconnect
feature. The difference is that it requires more force to dislodge them.

What do icelandic volcanoes do? The answer to this question is
extremely important for many people and companies – not only
on Iceland. In 2010 air traffic was shut down due to volcano ash in
the atmosphere. Thousands of people waited in vain for scheduled
flights and numerous cargo shipments were delayed across Europe.
For these reasons and more, remote monitoring of volcanoes is
important to all of us.
“Wireless data transfer from geo-measuring devices is one of the
large varieties of applications where cellular mobile operator network
communication is really efficient. Reliability and security of such a
solution is vital. Also important are entry-level and operating costs
compared to other technologies available on market,” says Otakar
Müller, B&B Electronics Sales and Marketing Director for Cellular,
EMEA.
Wireless routers help transfer data from seismological stations via
cellular mobile operator network technology to a central location
where it is processed and analyzed.
His opinion is proven by the operation of hundreds of other, similar
applications. Wireless routers are also suitable for industrial uses,
data transfer from ATMs, ticketing terminals and kiosks, and more.

Communicate with remote devices - gain the signal advantages of fiber
EIR-S-SC
EIR-M-ST
EIR-M-SC
EIR-G-SFP-T
Media converters do more than just convert copper Ethernet
signals to fiber. They allow your LAN to be extended beyond
the normal 100 meter limit. By using a pair of media
converters, LANs can be extended up to 2km with multimode fiber and up to 20 km with single-mode fiber.
If you prefer a rack mount, wall or desk converter, you’ll be
happy with the more economical EIS series.
EIS-M-SC
IMC Networks is now part of B&B Electronics!
See pages 44-45 of this catalog for great products and
tips on how to get tons of bandwidth to the edge of your
network with fiber optic. Media converters, versatile SFP
modules and more.
Since your data is traveling via fiber, it’s protected from
ground loop problems and electrical interference present
along the cable run.
If you’re looking for industrial toughness, wide temperature
protection, built in alarms, and DIN rail mount metal cases –
the EIR line is for you.

About Modbus
Modbus is among the most popular industrial protocols. Protocols are like languages,
French, English, Spanish, or Japanese. If devices are to understand each other, they
must speak the same language, otherwise a translator is needed. Interfaces such as
RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, or Ethernet only define the electrical interface. Modbus has
several dialects, ASCII, RTU or Modbus/TCP. A Modbus Gateway bridges between Modbus
protocols, enabling communications between Modbus devices speaking different dialects.
Gateways also solve other connectivity problems, like allowing multiple “master” devices to
access and share data.
