FIBER OPTIC QUESTIONS
5) WHICH FIBER OPTIC CABLES ARE COMPATIBLE WITH SERIALCOMM FIBER OPTIC CONVERTERS?
Answer: The following cables can be used with our fiber optic converters:
Single-Mode: 8.3/125, 8.7/125, 9/125, 10/125Âµm
Multi-Mode: 50/125, 62.5/125Âµm.
The terms refer to the diameter (in microns) of a fiber optic cable core (Ex.: 8.3, 8.7, 9, 10, 50, and 62.5) and the core cladding diameter (Ex.: 125). In addition, the fiber optic cladding layer is protected by an additional protective outer layer, the diameter of which can vary according to the manufacturer.
