About This Product

SKU/PN: FIRENEX-MX                                                               

FireWire over Multi Mode Fiber! The Newnex FireNEX-MX™ is an IEEE1394b compliant optical repeater for extra long distance connection. Utilizing an IEEE1394 PHY and optical transceiver, the FireNEX-MX™ is capable of sending IEEE1394 signals across an multi mode optical fiber cable up to 500 meters in length! The FireNEX-MX™ is contained within a small box slightly larger than a deck of cards, which makes it inobtrusive and compact, allowing you to place it on a desktop already crowded with other things.

The real power is in its optical connection. Setting up the FireNEX-MX™ is quite simple. Using a LC optical connector, plugging in the optical connection is without confusion or difficulty. It takes only minutes to setup, and there is no configuration necessary, like all IEEE1394 compliant hardware. The FireNEX-MX™ will work for both 1394b and 1394a signals at speeds of 400, 200 and 100 Mbps. For optical cables, click on Optical Cables.
