(Firewire) Cable Assemblies with Type 1 and 2 Connectors - Transmission
Rates to 393Mbps
popular standard for high speed communications between computer
peripherals is IEEE-1394, sometimes called firewire. This standard
specifies speeds up to 393Mbps which lends itself to products
like digital cameras and scanners. Cable assemblies used to connect
this equipment are built with premium grade cabling encompassing
two 28 AWG shielded twisted pairs and two 22 AWG power lines.
All wires are stranded and the cable utilizes an overall copper
braid and PVC jacket. The IEEE-1394 Type 1 connector utilizes
six gold plated contacts: three on each side of the plug. Type
2 connectors utilize 4 pins for mating with cameras and peripherals.
All lengths measured in meters.
