PoweredUSB, Make the USB Cable Robust & Include 12 & 24 Vdc

Clifford T Johnson, P.E., CSE

This course will introduce you to the need for a better way of powering peripheral devices attached to your industrial and commercial (POS) computers by combining the USB connection with the power cable for the device. New devices, such as printers, scanners, etc., are beginning to employ this method of connection eliminating the clutter of several 5, 12, or 24 Vdc separate power supplies and cables. Major POS manufacturers, including Dell, Epson, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, NCR, Star Micronics and Wincor, have accepted PoweredUSB technology.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
