The Benefits

The latest SP2 stations use fiber optic cable instead of traditional CAT5 to connect to an Ethernet switch.

You may be wondering… why use fiber optic cables instead of CAT5 cable?

A fiber optic cable is made up of really thin strands of glass or plastic known as optical fibers. Fiber optic cables carry information between two points using light-based technology; it sends information in a beam of light down a plastic or glass pipe that allows you to transmit telephone call at the speed of light.

The key benefit of this update is that it increases the maximum switch-to-station distance from 330 feet to several miles! This makes it possible to expand an SP2 system to remote areas of your plant without expensive network additions.

To ensure that every customer will benefit from the advantages of the Fiber Optic SP2, GAI-TRONICS has designed this model to be compatible with CAT5 SP2 variants – allowing both variations to be used in the same system. Additionally, the Fiber Optic SP2 stations utilize industry standard SFP modules – ensuring compatibility with a wide range of network equipment – making the installation process much simpler.
