Newnex FireNEX™ Repeaters
FireNEX™ repeaters extend 1394 signals through the use of CAT5, Coax, or fiber optic cables. According to the 1394 standard, copper cables alone are limited to 4.5 meters, but with the assistance of a FireNEX™ repeater, 1394 signal can be extended over up to 10 kilometers. FireNEX™ repeaters are used for a variety of applications, including consumer electronics, professional imaging, industrial control and machine vision. With its patented noise control technology, Newnex brought the world's first 1394b optical repeater to the market. It is the first company to expand 1394 long haul connectivity to include COAX and CAT5 cables. All of Newnex's repeaters are FCC and CE certified and tested to meet industry standards and international regulatory compliance requirements. Newnex's light-weight, compact, power-saving and bus-powered repeaters will satisfy almost any long distance 1394 connection needs.
