Mode Conditioning Cables

Mode Conditioning Cables, useful for running Gigabit Ethernet over existing multimode fiber optic plants. Operating at 1300nm and designed to prevent modal dispersion, these cables are centerline offset spliced in a manner which the cores do not align center-to-center, allowing the transition from Singlemode to Multimode. We offer Mode Conditioning Cables with a variety of options, from all types of connectors to different fiber modes to different jackets to different lengths. Available with a variety of fiber optic connectors for your convenience including: LC/UPC, SC/UPC, FC/UPC, ST/UPC, LC/APC, SC/APC, FC/APC, and MTRJ.
