4-Port FireWire® 800 Repeater/HUB

The VS40FW is a high-performance bi-directional hub/repeater for 9-pin FireWire® 800 (IEEE 1394b) signals. The VS 40FW increases the number of ports available and/or extends the distance of FireWire® cable runs.

VS-40FW features include:

  • Range - Doubles the cable range of FireWire® from 4.5m (14.75ft) to 9m (29.5ft). Multiple units can be cascaded to extend the range to up to 72m (236ft).

  • Hot Swapping - Supports Plug and Play.

  • Transfer Rates - 100, 200, 400 and 800Mbps.

  • ESD Protection - Incorporates Kramer’s Spark−Guard Pro™ signal protection circuitry to help protect against EDS (electrostatic discharge) that can damage digital equipment.

  • Alternate Power Sources - Can be powered from the 12V DC power supply or through the PC connection.

  • Requires 9-Pin FireWire® 800 Cable.

  • Compact Kramer DigiTOOLS® - 3 units can be rack mounted side−by−side in a 1U rack space with the optional rack adapter.
