FireWire 800 Repeater Hub Our 5 Port Repeater Hub provides port expansion on FireWire 800 IEEE 1394b device chains. Oriented towards industrial and machine vision applications, FireRepeater-800 PRO™ provides the ability to connect up to five FireWire 1394b devices and it's metallic compact case minimizes the risk of physical damage. The platform agnostic device provides five 9 pin (bilingual) FireWire 800 ports with a maximum throughput of up to 800 Mbps each. The Hub utilizes FireWire 800 bus power, or accepts an optional power adapter (sold separately) for use with devices requiring more power. Repeater hubs provide bus flexibility in that they allow for daisy chaining and/or hierarchical (tree) bus configurations. Repeater hubs also provide a means to lengthen the distance between devices when a single FireWire cable's length is inadequate. Simply daisy chain repeaters between cables to extend your reach. FireRepeater-800 Pro incorporates locking capable 9 pin bilingual ports, multiple mounting points and an optional metal bracket to ensure an even more secure physical connection.
