Using PowerCore as FireWire hub

Question

Can either FireWire-based PowerCore be used a hub for other FireWire devices?

Answer

Yes, that is possible.

However please note that we advise against using it with bus-powered FireWire devices -- which are powered via FireWire -- as the PowerCore isĀ not able to provide that power for bus-powered chained FireWire devices.

In fact, connecting any bus-powered FireWire device to the PowerCore could damage the PowerCore and void any remaining warranty!
