Hub
The following list shows some of the features of the 5 Port
10Base-T Hub. Your hub…
Hardware
requirements
The 5 Port 10Base-T Hub requires:
• Installs easily into any SmartSlot-equipped APC UPS
or expansion chassis, thus minimizing clutter.
• Has 4 station ports and 1 uplink port.
• Can be used to create a stand-alone, 5-station,
10Base-T network or can expand an existing 10Base-T
network by 4 stations.
• Is powered by the host APC UPS or accessory.
• Has LEDs that show information on the hub’s power
status and the presence of data collisions.
• Has LEDs on each port that indicate the presence of
traffic, link, and partitioning.
• An APC UPS or expansion chassis with an available
SmartSlot.
• A configured 10Base-T port for each device to be
attached.
• An unshielded twisted pair (UTP) communication cable
for each device to be attached. (See “Communication

Compatibility
Number
The APC Communications Compatibility Number (CCN),
which appears on the upper left corner of the front panel,
refers to the ability of an accessory to work with other APC
products. (The CCN for your hub may be different from the
example shown in Figure 1.) In general, we strive to make all
APC products compatible with one another; however, if you
want specific information on the compatibility of the 5 Port
10Base-T Hub with APC UPSs and accessories, visit the
APC support page (http://www.apcc.com/support/#kbase)
and search for Communications Compatibility Number.

Station ports
The Station ports are the first 4 RJ-45 ports, which are
labeled 1X–4X. The Station ports use straight-through UTP
cables to connect the hub with:
• Workstations or other non-hub devices that you want
to include in your network.
• The Uplink port of another hub in a cascading configuration.
Note: A Station port acts as an Uplink port when it is used
with a crossover cable.
Uplink port
The Uplink port is normally used in either of the following
ways, as shown in Figure 2.
