What is the difference between OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, OM5? In general, OM1 is conventional 62.5/125 μ m; OM2 is conventional 50/125 μ m; OM3 is 850nm laser-optimized 50 μ m core multimode fiber, and in 10Gb/s Ethernet with 850nm VCSEL, the fiber transmission distance can reach 300m; OM4 is an upgraded version of OM3. OM4 multimode fiber optimizes the differential mode delay (DMD) generated by OM3 multimode fiber during high-speed transmission. Therefore, the transmission distance is greatly improved, and the fiber transmission distance can reach 550m; OM5 is a new standard for fiber patch cords defined by TIA and IEC with a fiber diameter of 50/125μm. Compared to OM3 and OM4 fiber patch cords, OM5 fiber patch cords can be used for higher bandwidth applications. The bandwidth and maximum distance are different for different levels of transmission. What is OM5 fiber? OM5, previously known as wideband multimode fiber or WBMMF. Known as Wideband Multimode Fiber Patch Cable (WBMMF), OM5 fiber is a laser-optimized multimode fiber (MMF) designed to specify bandwidth characteristics for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). The new fiber classification method is designed to support a variety of "short" wavelengths between 850 nm and 950 nm, which are suitable for high bandwidth applications after polymerization. The OM3 and OM4 are designed primarily to support a single wavelength of 850 nm. The difference from OM3, OM4? Jacket Color OM1 and OM2 cable typically come with an orange jacket. OM3 and OM4 have a suggested jacket color of aqua. The color of the OM5 fiber jacket was chosen as lime green.
