The 6-Port FireWire-400 Hub from Belkin turns one FireWire-400 port on your computer system into six. This is a great choice for users who are tired of constantly swapping out cables to connect their multiple FireWire devices. This integrated solution is ideal for anyone who needs to expand their computer's FireWire capabilities.
The hub allows you to expand your FireWire connections. Users often need to connect external drives, digital video cameras and other external devices to their computer via FireWire connections. Adding a hub will allow you to quickly make these connections without constantly swapping cables.
FireWire devices are often hot swappable. This hub fully supports that capability, allowing you to connect and disconnect devices without powering down your computer.
The hub also acts as a FireWire repeater. This lets you repeat a FireWire signal over a cable, allowing you to place a FireWire device up to 30' from your computer using 2 15' cables.
An AC adapter is included to power the hub, allowing you to provide ample power to your external devices when they are connected to your computer.
