Optical fiber interface
Tower interface with fiber optics option
The standard data interface to tower bells and clocks is through twisted pair Category 5 (or better) cabling. To increase noise immunity and system reliability we offer an option using fiber optic cable.
There is an option charge for the interfaces on our equipment, and the customer is responsible for the installation of the fiber optic cable. A local electrician can provide a quotation for the difference between CAT5 and Optical Fiber installation.
