|800Mbps and 100m FireWire over Cat5! The world's first S800, bus-powered Firewire/1394b repeater through CAT
5! 100m and 800Mbps FireWire over Cat5. The Newnex FireNEX-CAT5-S800™
is an IEEE1394b compliant repeater for long distance
connections. The FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ is capable of
sending IEEE1394 signals across a regular
Cat5/5e/6 cable at a data rate of 800 Mbps up to
100 meters in length! The FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ is contained
within a small box slightly larger than a deck of cards, which
makes it unobtrusive and compact, allowing you to
place it on a desktop already crowded with other
The real power is in its connection through a regular Cat5/5e/6 cable,
which has been widely used in the Ethernet
world.The wide-spread use of Cat5 cables allows for a reliable,
cost-effective medium for long distance IEEE1394b applications. Setting
up the FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ is quite simple.
It takes only minutes to setup, and there is no
configuration necessary, like all IEEE1394
compliant hardware. The FireNEX-CAT5-S800™can send 1394b signals at
800mbps up to 100 meters in length.
The FireNEX-CAT5-S800™is designed for ease of use without sacrificing
industrial level reliability. The FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ requires no
external power source, powered solely by IEEE1394 bus power. This allows
for remote controlling in hazardous environments. However, a DC jack is
included if bus power is unwanted or unneccessary. Industrial locking
screws for each IEEE1394b port insures a strong, secure connection.
FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ SET includes
two FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ repeaters and a manual. Whenever you purchase 2
FireNEX™ repeaters we consider it a set. Cat5e cable and
FireWire cables are not included. The Newnex FireNEX-CAT5™ S800 comes
with one-year manufacturer warranty.
An optional DC power source may be
connected to the unit if bus power is not avialiable. NTC Distributing
