2.3 Connections
This following topics provide illustrations and information on connecting the CyberData 4-Port
PoweredUSB 2.0 Hub with Serial Ports to power supplies, the host, and peripheral devices.
2.3.1 Power supply
The PoweredUSB specification requires supplying +24V at 2.3A and +12V at 1.5A to each voltage
designated port. These requirements are met only if the power supply has sufficient wattage for this
amount of power.
The Epson PS180 brick and Dell printer power supply are examples of lower-cost alternate power
supplies that can be used with this Hub and peripherals requiring less power. Two power plug
receptacles are provided on the back of the CyberData 4-Port PoweredUSB 2.0 Hub with Serial Ports
to facilitate the use of alternate power supplies.
The three-pin connector is normally used for the Dell and Epson Bricks. The four-pin connector is
used for a high-current power supply. See ”Figure 2-8”on page 8 for an illustration of cable routing
from the CyberData 4-Port PoweredUSB 2.0 Hub with Serial Ports.
CAUTION The P1 and P2 DC input jacks on the back of this Hub are for input only. Do not plug
power supplies into both input jacks simultaneously as equipment damage that might void the
product warranty could occur.

Installing and Using the 4-Port PoweredUSB Hub
Operation
2.4 Operation
The CyberData 4-Port PoweredUSB 2.0 Hub with Serial Ports is a standard USB Hub that complies
with the USB 2.0 specification, and adds PoweredUSB ports. When connected to a Host, it is
enumerated as a Generic USB Hub. This Hub also meets the PoweredUSB .08g specification. For
more information about this specification, go to www.poweredusb.org.
POS peripheral
caveat
According to the USB 2.0 specification, devices attached to a USB interface should enumerate from
the Hub’s USB Vbus, regardless of the PoweredUSB powered ports. Some POS devices do not
comply with this specification, and will not enumerate unless the upper sections of the PoweredUSB
ports are active.
When running on operating systems such as Windows XP with no devices attached (an empty Hub),
the operating system turns the Hub off. The operating system does not detect non-compliant
peripherals when they are hot-plugged into an empty Hub. Consequently PoweredUSB power is
not supplied to the peripheral. In this case, you can restore correct operation as follows.
1. Unplug the Host side connection for five seconds, and then plug it in again.
2. Be sure that at least one USB device is plugged in when the computer is booted, or leaves
standby mode.
3. Plug in a standard USB compliant device, such as a mouse or keyboard.
4. Disable the low-power, standby operation. With this configuration, power is always supplied to
the PoweredUSB ports regardless of the PC’s operational state. For more information, contact
CyberData as instructed in Section , "Contact Technical Support".
2.5 Port Electrical Specifications
The CyberData 4-Port PoweredUSB 2.0 Hub with Serial Ports adheres to the USB 2.0 electrical
specifications as follows:
Standard USB
lower A supply
Each lower portion of the PoweredUSB port provides +5V @ 500mA. If more than 500mA are drawn
from a port, that port goes into USB over current, the +5 volts is turned off, and the condition is
reported to the host according to USB 2.0 specifications.
PoweredUSB
supply
The listed maximum currents depend on the selected power supply. Both the +12V and +24V
PoweredUSB ports are protected with active over current circuits. If an over current condition
occurs, unplug the DC connection, remove the overcurrent condition, and re-cycle the DC
connection to the Hub by unplugging it, and then plugging it in again.

Appendix B: Setting up the Hub on
Windows XP
For connecting the CyberData 4-Port PoweredUSB 2.0 Hub to a PC running the Windows XP
operating system, keep in mind:
1. Microsoft XP Service Pack 1 or higher must be installed.
2. When connecting the Hub for the first time, it is important to perform the enumeration
correctly. A Microsoft XP Service Pack issue does not enumerate and recognize a Hub when no
devices are attached to it. To correctly enumerate the CyberData 4-Port PoweredUSB 2.0 Hub,
attach a peripheral whose drivers are included in Windows XP, such as a USB mouse, prior to
enumerating the Hub. To accomplish this:
a. Connect a USB mouse to one of the lower, standard USB, Hub ports.
b. Connect the power cord to the Hub.
c. With the PC powered up, connect the host control cable from the Hub to a USB port on the
PC. Doing so displays the Found new hardware dialog, indicating that the PC is searching for
drivers for the Hub.
d. When the PC completes the driver search, it displays the Found new hardware dialog, in
search of a driver for the mouse. If required, click Next in all screens of the wizard to
complete the driver selection for the mouse.
At this point, you should be able to plug in and install a USB device provided you have also
installed its drivers, or have them available for installation.
