  • 1Description

The VS-8FW 8-Port FireWire-400 Repeater/Hub from Comprehensive / Kramer is a bi-directional hub and repeater that allows you to increase your available FireWire-400 ports while at the same time allowing you to double the maximum length of transmission from 14.75' (4.5 m) to 29.5' (9 m). The hub and repeater is a great option for anyone who needs to expand their computer's FireWire-400 capabilities or to increase the length between their computer and FireWire-400 peripheral device.

Extended FireWire Range
The repeater allows you to increase the maximum distance of FireWire-400 connections from 14.75' (4.5 m) to 29.5' (9 m). You'll even be able to cascade several repeaters together to achieve maximum ranges of up to 236' (72 m).
FireWire-400 Hub
The repeater also serves as a hub, allowing you to connect 7 devices to 1 FireWire-400 port on your computer. This is a great option for users who have more FireWire-400 devices than available ports. Multiple hubs can be cascaded to allow you to connect up to 63 devices to your computer.
Spark-Guard Protection
The repeater/hub includes Spark-Guard circuitry to protect your FireWire device and computer against electric charges that can damage them. This not only allows you to extend your range, but also protects your equipment at the same time.

    Kramer VS-8FW reviews

    VS8FW 8-Port FireWire-400 Repeater/Hub is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Well Made Hub Very well made, but super bright red light that is annoying. Perhaps it can be turned off, but I admit I didn't read the manual. Hookup was easy and it works perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for the Recording studio All of my firewire harddrives now have thier own port & I have extra ports for other devices. Oh yeah hot swapping also. and because this unit is also a repeater I can use a longer firewire cable where needed.
