    TP-Link MC210CS What is the Minimum Fibre Cable Distance between the two Convertors

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Two TP-Link MC210CS V2.23. What is the Minimum Fibre Cable Distance/Length between the two identical Gigabit Ethernet Media Convertors?
    Would I need an attenuator, if testing with a 20 metre Duplex Lead, 9/125, SC, fibre cable with a path loss of <0.5dB?
    If so, is there a recommended attenuator? How many dBs?
    Is there an optical Laser Hazard, when in use?

    Regards Oggy

    In my opinion, you need not attenuator, I have connected two MC210 CS via 1meter fiber did the test, everything is ok.

    Second that, I too use short fiber cables for tests with single-mode fiber modules. Attenuators are only needed if the bit error rate rises on short fiber cables when deployed for normal use.

    Thank you all, I have tested the two MC210CS, with 20 metres of fibre cable,
    without an attenuator, to test and all works good, as advertised.

    Regards Oggy
