Description
FireWire Cat 5 Repeater
This is an industrial FireWire Repeater!  It allows you to connect FireWire devices that are up to 100 meters away via inexpensive Cat 5 cable and two transceivers.

Why would I need this?
Normally FireWire is only sustainable for about 15ft.  There are a couple of ways to increase that a little.  But, let's say you have a video camera that connect through FireWire and you want to run it to a computer that's 100 feet away.  This kit will allow you to make that happen.
 

Compatible with FireWire devices
it doesn't matter what brand, make or model your FireWire device is, this is compatible.  It's just as if your FireWire port were right there by your device. It is important to keep in mind that this runs up to 100Mbps, whereas FireWire itself can run up to 400Mbps.  You may want to try one of our Optical Repeaters if you're needing more speed, such as if you're running a higher resolution or higher frame rates on your cameras.

    SETUP DIAGRAM
    When it's setup.  This is what your setup should look like for proper functionality.  Notice the coupler that comes with the kit, along with the cable that comes with the kit inline with your Cat 5 cable.  This is necessary to get the proper connection.
