FW-CAT5S400

IEEE 1394 FireWire to UTP5 HUB (Repeater), IEEE Std 1394b-2002

Introduction

FW-CAT5S400 enables 1394 signals to be transmitted and received over Cat5 or Cat6 Unshielded Twisted- Pair (UTP) cable.
FW-CAT5S400 is optimized to create long-haul IEEE 1394b-2002 connections over Cat5 or Cat6 at the S400 data rate, but it can also be used at S200 and S100.
FW-CAT5S400 also works for Cat5-structured wiring cable that is typically installed in a home or office.
