Differences between Hubport models regarding Captive


  • "Captive" Hubports have a permanently connected (captive) upstream USB cable.  Non-Captive Hubports have an upstream USB port and include a USB cable.  In other words, the USB cable on a Captive Hubport cannot be detached.  The USB cable on a Non-Captive Hubport can be detached, and another USB cable can be used instead.  A Captive Hubport has one less point of failure, since the USB cable cannot be accidentally disconnected where it attaches to the Hubport.
