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.
The hub turns 1 FireWire-400 port into 4, allowing you to more easily connect multiple FireWire-400 devices to your computer.
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)
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.
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.
