I found a USB hub that allows me to consolidate all of the USB connections in to one box so I only use up 1 USB 3.0 port on my computer. Right now I have all three devices working from this unit.
It does have an external power supply and is available with adapters for other voltages/plug styles.
This box will support up to 7 devices.
The hub is sold by usbfirewire.com and the model number is RR-USB3-HUB7 it goes for about $90 US. It is an industrial type device in a steel case with mounting screws for attaching it to a bench or table. The DC power is through a plug-in connector that also has a screw lock (kinda interesting). There are indicator LED’s on each active port.
Using this device the BB60C only needs the USB 3.0 port plugged in. I have the additional power plugin unterminated. This also allows for the possibility of using straight in USB 3.0 to mini-B cables and connectors to the BB60C.

That sounds like a nice solution. What voltage does your BB60C see? (available in status bar near bottom of user interface); if it’s above 4.55 volts you should be good to go.

It is reporting between 4.99 and 5.02 volts. Pretty good little regulator they have in that hub.
When I disconnect the second pigtail power connector the voltage does not fluctuate at all.

What is the current rating needed or signal hound USB 3.0 & 2.0 connectors?
I also have one USB hub but my device is not working, I think the current is not sufficient for the device to operate or my device might been overloaded due to overfeeding. Now my device is not working.
So it will be great if you can suggest me the correct input level.
