June 26, 2008 - FirePRO™ components are designed to maximize the effectiveness of the imaging pipeline, while minimizing the costs of component failure and downtime. The 2-port IEEE-1394b industrial repeater is a reliable and cost effective solution for extending IEEE-1394 devices beyond the standard 4.5m cable length, and its ultra-compact 25x56x17mm metal case makes it ideal for applications where space is limited. The 5-port IEEE-1394b industrial hub can also be used as a cable extender and supports the simultaneous connection of multiple FireWire cameras. The compact 57x94x20mm metal case minimizes the risk of physical damage, and an external power input ensures system stability for large multi-camera arrays. Both products incorporate locking 9-pin 1394b bilingual ports and a status LED, and support transfer speeds up to 800Mb/s.
All FirePRO hubs, repeaters and host adapter cards are designed and manufactured by Point Grey Research at the company's headquarters in Vancouver, Canada, and are backed by an industry leading two (2) year warranty. Locking screw connectors and ports on all products not only guarantee a reliable connection through the entire 1394b network, but also reduce stress on internal electronics that can be caused by cable movement. All FirePRO products are fully compatible with IEEE-1394b and i.Link, and backward compatible with 1394a.
The following FirePRO products are available from Point Grey Research and its network of distributors:
