Essential Info

FireWire cables allow you to send data between your high-bandwidth digital devices. This 1394b cable is backwards compatible with prior FireWire versions and will enable you to move large volumes of data quickly, efficiently, and reliably, whether your devices are equipped with FireWire 400 or FireWire 800 technology. Use FireWire cables in a broad range of devices, such as high-end digital audio/video applications, consumer audio/video device control and signal routing, home networking, nonlinear DV editing, digital audio mixing, DV cameras, hard drives, digital still cameras, professional audio, printers, scanners, and home entertainment equipment. FireWire cables also allow for peer-to-peer connections, so you can connect your digital devices directly to one another - no need for a computer for the devices to communicate. Also known as i.Link or IEEE 1394, this cable can transfer information between devices at a maximum distance of 100 meters.

Calrad FireWire cables are available in the following configurations:

9-Pin Male to 9-Pin Male
9-Pin Male to 6-Pin Male
9-Pin Male to 4-Pin Male

What's Included

  • 1x - FireWire 9 Pin Male to 4 Pin Male Cable, 6 Feet

    Choosing a FireWire Cable
    There are three kinds of FireWire connectors: 4-pin, 6-pin, and 9-pin. Cables may have the same or different types of connector at each end. The types of connectors you will require depend on your application and whether your devices are equipped with FireWire 400 or FireWire 800 technology.

    4-Pin
    No power is carried between 4-pin connectors, only data. 4-pin connectors are often found on peripherals with built-in power supplies, such as laptop computers. You can recognize a 4-pin connector by its rectangular shape with a small notch or indentation on the bottom edge. 4-pin connectors are considered FireWire 400 connectors and can transfer files at speeds of up to 400Mbps, at a distance of up to 15 feet.

    6-Pin
    Unlike 4-pin connectors, the 6-pin connector is capable of transferring DC power as well as data between devices. Devices that can provide power, such as desktop computers are often equipped with 6-pin connectors. Contacts are flattened to withstand constant plugging and unplugging of the cable. 6-pin connectors are rectangular in shape with beveled corners on one end. 6-pin connectors are also considered FireWire 400 connectors and can transfer files at speeds of up to 400Mbps, at a distance of up to 15 feet.

    9-Pin
    As part of the FireWire 800 generation, 9-pin connectors can transfer both information and power across cable lengths of up to 100 meters at speeds of up to 800Mbps. However, when adapted to FireWire 400 connectors, the maximum transfer rate will be 400Mbps. In addition to the power and data-sharing capabilities, 9-pin connectors provide a grounded shield to protect the other wires from potential interference. 9-pin connectors are rectangular with four square corners.
