Q: What is the length that the FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ can support?
A: The FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ will support up to the maximum length of 100 meters with CAT5 cables.
Q: What is the maximum speed of the FireNEX-CAT5-S800™?
A: The FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ can support up to the maximum speed of 800Mbps.
Q: Can the FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ itself be a FireWire repeater?
A: Yes, the FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ is needed for the IEEE1394 over CAT5 cable extension. Both FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ units can act as either the transceiver or the receiver. If you need to RMA one of the repeaters, please return both devices that has the same S/N.
Q: Which FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ connects to the host system and which FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ connects to the device?
A: The host system and the devices can be connected to either FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ units.
Q: When is a power adapter needed?
A: The maximum length of the CAT5 cable for this bus-power set-up depends on the power consumption of the device. For example, to sufficiently power the other repeater and a device like an industry camera that consumes 2.9W of power the length of the CAT5 shall be no longer than 70 meters. When using a longer cable or a device with higher power consumption, a 12V DC power adapter may be needed.
Q: Where can the RoHS Certificate for FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ be found?
A: FireNEX-CAT5-S800™ Rohs Certifcation can be found in Newnex's FireNEX Repeaters Certifcate
