Anyone using Firewire extensions?

Postby Tom12 » Fri Nov 11, 2005 4:48 am

Hi I am wondering if anyone is using a fire wire \"repeater\" or an extension cable to gain more distance from the computer? And if so how is it working?

I use a 9 meter fire wire from Calumet - works fine. Were you thinking of even longer distances to your computer?

I have been on multiple installations with this configuration also done internal tests.
Start out with 4.5 meter and then repeater, add 10meter new repeater etc.
I believe the limit is about 3 or 4 repeaters.
What we recommend is ofcourse the Phase One Power Pack solution which is a combind repeater and power conditioner.
