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.
