No USB Port Required
The External Motor Controller does not require USB connectivity and so it does not need to take up a USB port. Simply plug the RJ12 port into the UPBv2 or PPBA's EXT port and the powerbox software will recognize the controller.
Second EXT Port Available
A second EXT port allows you to daisy chain future equipment or connect your environmental sensor.
The controller is fully protected against undervoltage, overcurrent, and overtemperature events.
