Power USB 3.0 Hub?


Recommended Posts

Does the Virpil Throttle, Joystick and rudder pedals have any problems when using a Powered USB Hub? 

 

Looking to purchase a set of Virpil gear so I am wondering since I won't have enough space for all 3 products on my motherboard.

They'd be fine, probably even unpowered. I daisy-chained 2 hubs off of another hub, all unpowered, one usb cable to computer, and got to about 10 or 11 devices (including hotas) before I started running into some issues with it.

As far as Virpil I am currently only running their new CM3 Throttle, and I have it plugged into a powered USB 3 Hub and it works great in that for me. I also have a VKB stick and MFG rudder pedals plugged into powered a powered hub as well with no problem.

No problem here either. CM3 throttle, rudder pedals and CM2 base all plugged into the same powered USB 3.0 hub.

And just for posterity, and future searchers, I have a VKB Gunfighter, MFG Crosswind, and Virpil CM3, all plugged into a powered USB hub with 7 ports, one fast charge port, it supports USB 3.0, and they work fine.  No issues.

I am maybe a bit out of tone, I have a sitecom powered USB hub 3.0 and it sometimes have trouble.

 

which causes my devices not to be detected. Even when I have just one  together with TrackIR installed.

 

As a consequence every except TrackIR is now connected directly to my PC

I run all my devices through two ea powered 4 port USB3 Hubs with individual on/off switches for each port which I find nice.

Virpil CM3 Throttle, VKB Gunfighter Pro stick, Crosswind Pedals.

Works a champ.
