The KCH601 USB Controller Hub with installed K-Cube and T-Cube modules. One KAP101 adapter plate is used for the T-Cube on the hub.
Please note that with the exception of the USB Controller Hubs, each power supply is not compatible with all K-Cubes and T-Cubes. Please verify that the power supply can provide the required voltage and amperage for the K-Cubes and T-Cubes being used. See below for more details on choosing the correct option.

Region-Specific Adapters for KPS101
The KPS101 and TPS101 offer a simple power supply for select individual K-Cubes or T-Cubes, while the TPS002 supplies power for one or two select K-Cubes or T-Cubes. Please refer to the compatibility information in the list or table above. The TPS002 can only support one KNA-VIS or KNA-IR controller and should not be used to power any additional units due to potentially exceeding the current limit.
The cubes need to be hooked up individually to a computer via a USB cable to use them with the motion control software. A region-specific adapter plug is shipped with the power supply unit based on your location. The adapter plugs for the KPS101 are shown to the right.

KCH301 USB Controller Hub with Installed
K-Cube and T-Cube Modules
(T-Cube is Shown on a KAP101 Adapter)
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.
