5m SC-SC 62.5-125 Mode-Conditioning Fiber Optic Patch Cable - Orange

Item# SV-26998a

    Product Code: SV-26998a
  • Fully compliant with IEEE 802
  • 3z application standards, this cable is used where high speed gigabit 1000Base-LX routers and switches are deployed into existing multimode plants
  • The need for this patch cord is due to the single-mode launch nature of the -LX or long-wave (1300 nm) transceiver modules used for gigabit ethernet
  • Launching a single-mode laser into the center of a multimode fiber can cause multiple signals to be generated that confuse the receiver at the other end of the fiber
  • These multiple signals, caused by Differential Mode Delay (DMD) effects, severely limit the cable distance length for operating gigabit ethernet
  • A mode-conditioning patch cord maskes these DMD effects by eliminating these multiple signals by allowing the single-mode launch to be offset away from the center of a multimode fiber
