Extending FireWire Cables

Normally, the length of a FireWire cable may not exceed 4.5 m. Today, we are proud to present two measures that allow this restriction to be overcome.

New cables allow a maximum length of 10 m: CA-1394-66/10

Using repeaters, we are able to easily connect up to 16 cables: FireWire REP/1

Therefore, it is possible to bridge distances of up to 160 m, while maintaining the full bandwidth of 400 MBit/s.

As always, should you wish to speak to us about this or any other topic related to machine vision, please call us or email us.
