Kramer PT-1FW overview

  • 1Description

The PT-1FW Spark-Guard Pro DV Line Protector from Comprehensive / Kramer is a simple device designed to protect your FireWire equipment from electrostatic discharge that can occur when a device is plugged and unplugged from a computer while it is running. FireWire devices are designed to be hot-swappable, but this device gives you the peace of mind that your equipment will not be damaged from static electricity.

Equipment Protection
Your FireWire equipment can often cost thousands of dollars; protecting it with this inexpensive device gives you the peace of mind that it won't be damaged from an electrostatic discharge.
6-Pin FireWire Connections
The Spark-Guard features 2 6-Pin FireWire connections. Simply plug the device you wish to protect into the "in" port and the computer into the "out" port and your equipment will be protected.
Passive Operation
The Spark-Guard operates passively, without the need for an external power source. This lets you use it in almost any configuration in order to protect your equipment.

    Kramer PT-1FW reviews

    PT1FW Spark-Guard Pro DV Line Protector is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent insurance (perhaps) I didn't know until recently that Firewire devices may be damaged if they are hot-swapped. In other words, you should not plug a Firewire device into your computer while the device or the computer is powered up. This tiny Kramer product seems drastically overpriced, but if it saves your gear, it is well worth it. I don't know whether it works, but after a near-disaster (with an HDV deck connected via Firewire to a laptop), I now use it religiously, and so far (1 month) so good. I've hotswapped hard drives with it quite a bit, and so far, it works great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This works! I think...... For exporting to tape and capturing in my Adobe Premiere CS5 program. I believe it works just fine; but since it prevents static from hurting my camera, it is hard to prove what is NOT happening to my camera. All I can say: I don't have to ground my camera to an outlet anymore, yea!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best thing that ever happened to me This little device stops and electrical spark from hot swapping fire wire cables and surges in to your pc and along your cables to damaging Fire wire ports in expensive vtrs or cameras.A must for any avid non-linear editor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little box! I had issues with the firewire chipset blowing on my Digidesign 003 Rack so I decided to get this to keep my gear safe. Has worked like a charm. Best investment I've made so far.
