Dear Sir or Madame, please specify the inner diameter of the connector (for TDC001) (inner: 1.3 or 1.45 mm; outer: 3.5mm). Thank you with best regards, Jörg Neuhaus

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: The barrel size is 1.3mm.

I did not see that the TPS002 power supply that we ordered is not compatible with our T-cubes for LEDD1 (actually this is not very logical because you sell TPS001 and TPS008 compatible, but not TPS002, this should be made clearer on your website because there is a denomination"T-cube" for all the T-cubes TDC001, TST001, LEDD1, TSC001 etc, although they are very different...)

KCH301 USB Controller Hub with Installed
K-Cube and T-Cube Modules
(T-Cube is Shown on a KAP101 Adapter)
Input Specifications
Item # Mains Voltage Requirements
80 - 264 V, 1.8 A Max, 47 - 63 Hz
  • USB Controller Hubs for up to Three or Six K-Cubes or T-Cubes
  • Provide Power and Communication with a Single USB Cable and a Single Power Connection
  • Adapter Plate Connects T-Cube to Hub

These USB Controller Hubs have been designed specifically with multiple K-Cube and T-Cube operation in mind. The hub vastly reduces the number of USB and power cables required when operating multiple K-Cubes or T-Cubes. Furthermore, a USB output connector can be connected to the USB input on another unit, allowing multiple Controller Hubs to be connected together while still only using a single USB cable from the host control PC.

The hub draws a maximum current of 10 A; please verify that the cubes being used do not require a total current of more than 10 A.

The KCH301 and KCH601 Controller Hubs are compatible with all K-Cube and T-Cube modules. A KAP101 or KAP102 Adapter Plate (sold separately) is required for each T-Cube to operate on the controller hub. The KAP101 is designed to adapt 60 mm wide T-Cubes to the hubs, while the KAP102 is designed to adapt 120 mm wide T-Cubes to the hubs.

For more information on the USB Controller Hubs, see the full web presentation.
