The 1398 series cable is an IEEE-1394
6-pin Male to 6-pin female cable,
used as a FireWire extension cable in
which the female (socket) end can
be mounted on a face plate, a wall
plate, or a bulkhead surface.
These cables are an ideal method to
panel-mount FireWire ports for easy
access to / removal of portable devices.
Popular for video editing suites, production
studios, and scenarios in which external
FireWire enclosures play a strong role, these
panelmount cables are clean and easy for
no-fuss termination and usability.
These cables have a black PVC
jacket, and are shielded by both
a foil wrap and a braid wrap.
This is the highest grade of
shielding available for this type
of cable. In house tests have run
these cable in 60-foot chains without
signal loss or degradation-- four times
the maximum specification length of 15 feet.
This cable is IEEE-1394A (iLink) compliant.
No threading is required on the plate, the
connector has embedded 4-40 nuts. The required
4-40 screws are included with the cable.
The 6-pin male connector is a flat-looking rectangle that
has a beveled "D" shape on one side.
The panel-mount cable features an enlarged hood on the
female end for mounting into a face plate.
Cables designed for high-speed bandwidth, for connecting
to computers, hard drives, and CD drives, typically use
the 6-pin connector.
These panel-mount FireWire cables have a bulkhead
connector designed to mate snugly with our
FireWire face plates.
