Quadra-Bay 5.25" FireWire (IEEE 1394a) to IDE Enclosure w/ Four Mobile Racks

Two Models:

  • FWEIDE525Q-MR4-1
    Internal Parts: IOI-1394R4 x 2pcs + FW-i345MR x 4pcs
    * FW-i345MR is designed with initio inic-1430L.
  • FWEIDE525Q-MR4-2
    Internal Parts: IOI-1394R4 x 2pcs + FW-142AMR x 4pcs
    * FW-142AMR is designed with Oxford OXFW911.

FWEIDE525Q-MR4 has two IOI-1394R4 (4-Port FireWire repeater) in the rear panel. Each IOI-1394R4 connects to two FireWire mobile racks. It can also connect to a FireWire host controller (IOI-4601-21 or IOI-4601-21 suggested) to increase the data transfer speed. Or, both IOI-1394R4 can be connected to each other externally using a FireWire cable.


FWEIDE525Q-MR4 provides peripheral vendors a unique opportunity to continuously take advantage of the ATA/ATAPI economies of scale while presenting peripherals into the rapidly expanding 1394/FireWire markets.
