The YHUBETH1 YoctoHub Ethernet is a Swiss-made Fast-Ethernet module that can host three Yoctopuce modules to access them remotely. It can be powered either by a USB Micro-B cable, or directly from the Ethernet cable (PoE compatible with 802.3af standard).
The YoctoHub-Ethernet can be used in the same way as a VirtualHub running on a little PC, but it is much easier to setup and maintain than a PC. It smaller and consumes less. It is compatible out-of-the-box with all existing applications using Yoctopuce API. As for the VirtualHub, it can run autonomously using HTTP callbacks.
Three Yoctopuce modules can be connected directly, one of which can be fixed directly on the YoctoHub Ethernet and connected using a Board2Board-127 connector. More devices can be connected thanks to the YoctoHub Shield extension. The YoctoHub Ethernet can power Yoctopuce devices up to 2A.
Warning: although the 3 downstream ports hosting Yoctopuce devices use USB micro-B connectors, the YoctoHub-Ethernet use a specific protocol simpler than USB to talk to the devices. Therefore, it is not possible to drive or even to power a regular (non-Yoctopuce) device using the YoctoHub Ethernet. It is not possible neither to use a regular USB hub (such as the Micro-USB-Hub) on the downstream ports. If you need more downstream ports for Yoctopuce devices, you can use a YoctoHub Shield.
USB cables and enclosure to be ordered separately.
