1394 FireWireFireNEX-COAX™ Repeater
IEEE 1394 9 Pin Coax Repeater
The FireNEX-COAX-S800™ uses flexible coax cabling. There are several advantages in using a standard 75Ω COAX cable: it has excellent EMC performance, low cost connections, enables terminations by the end user, and the possibility of using existing cabling infrastructure. Since the FireNEX-COAX-S800™ repeater has two 1394b ports, it can also be used as a hub for "daisy chain"-type connections, with a few devices connected at the same time.
- Compliant with both IEEE1394b and IEEE1394a specifications
- Data transfer rate at 100/200/400/800 Mbps
- Two 9-pin IEEE1394 bilingual copper ports with industrial locking screws
- One standard 75Ω BNC port
- Reach up to a repeater-to-repeater distance of 60 meters using a standard 75Ω COAX cable
- RoHS Certified
- COAX Cable Bus Power through 9 pin ports at standard 75Ω BNC
Q: What is the length that the FireNEX-COAX-800™ can support?
A: The FireNEX-COAX-800™ will support up to the maximum length of 60 meters with RG6 COAX cables. Using other 75Ω cables can reduce the maximum length.
Q: What is the maximum speed of the FireNEX-COAX-S800™?
A: The FireNEX-COAX-S800™ can support up to the maximum speed of 800 Mbps.
Q: Can the FireNEX-800™ itself be a FireWire repeater?
A: Yes, the FireNEX-800™ can be used as a two-port FireWire repeater alone, repeating through the two copper ports.
Q: Do I have to use two FireNEX-COAX-800™ repeaters to make it work?
A: Yes, a pair of FireNEX-COAX-S800™ is needed for the IEEE1394 over COAX cable extension. Both FireNEX-COAX-S800™ units can act as either the transceiver or the receiver.
Q: Which FireNEX-COAX-S800™ connects to the host system and which FireNEX-COAX-S800™ connects to the device?
A: The host system and the devices can be connected to either FireNEX-COAX-S800™ unit.
Q: Where can the RoHS Certificate for FireNEX-COAX-800™ be found?
A: FireNEX-COAX-800™ Rohs Certifcation can be found in Newnex's FireNEX Repeaters Certifcate.
