The 4-Port FireWire-400 Repeater and Hub from Comprehensive/Kramer turns 1 FireWire-400 port on your computer system into 4. The hub also acts as a repeater, allowing you to double the length that FireWire cable can be run from 14.75' (4.5 m) to 29.5' (9 m). Multiple repeaters can be cascaded to achieve a maximum length of 236' (72 m)

FireWire-400 supports data transfer bandwidth of up to 50 MB/sec, making it an ideal solution for high performance external storage devices. Users who have multiple FireWire-400 devices and only not enough ports on their computer or need to connect remote FireWire devices to a computer will find this hub and repeater to be an ideal solution to meet their needs.

Expandability
The hub turns 1 FireWire-400 port into 4, allowing you to more easily connect multiple FireWire-400 devices to your computer.
Repeater Functionality
You can use this hub to repeat FireWire-400 signals, allowing you to connect devices that are physically further away from your computer than the FireWire standard allows for on its own. Adding a single repeater doubles the range of FireWire from 14.75' (4.5 m) to 29.5' (9 m). You can daisy chain repeaters to achieve lengths of up to 236' (72 m)
Hot Swappable
FireWire-400 devices are often hot swappable. This hub fully supports that capability, allowing you to connect and disconnect devices without powering down your computer.
FireWire-400 Speed
The FireWire-400 bus allows for data transfer speeds of up to 50 MB/sec, making this an ideal solution to connect multiple high-performance storage devices to your computer.
