Mode-conditioning patch cord

The Mode Conditioning Patch Cord is designed for long-wave (-LX) multimode applications of Gigabit Ethernet and is compliant with the IEEE 802.3z application standard. It consists of a cable assembly with an offset singlemode-to-multimode fiber connection point and duplex SC connectors on each end. The patch cord eliminates differential mode delay effects by aligning the singlemode launch away from the center of a multimode fiber core. This offset launch creates a transmitted signal that is similar to typical multimode light-emitting diode launches.
