#5735 8 Gigabit PCI Express Dual Port Fibre Channel Adapter
The 8 Gigabit PCI Express Dual Port Fibre Channel Adapter is a high- performance adapter based on the Emulex
LPe12002 PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA). Each port provides single initiator capability over a fibre link. The ports have LC
(Lucent Connector or Local Connector) type connectors and utilize shortwave laser optics. The adapter connects to fibre
channel switches and operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 Gbps. The adapter automatically negotiates with the switch to
the highest speed of which the switch is capable. LEDs on each port provide information on the status and link
speed of the port.
Cables are the responsibility of the customer. Use multimode fibre optic cables with short-wave lasers that adhere to the
 OM3 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 2000 MHz*km bandwidth
 OM2 - multimode 50/125 micron fibre, 500 MHz*km bandwidth
 OM1 - multimode 62.5/125 micron fibre, 200 MHz*km bandwidth
OM2 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best results, OM2 cables should not be
connected to OM3 cables. However, if an OM2 cable is connected to an OM3 cable, the characteristics of the OM2 cable
apply to the entire length of the cables.
The following shows the supported distances for the three different cable types at the three different link speeds.
OM3: .5m - 500m (2.125 Gbps); .5m - 380m (4.25 Gbps); .5m - 150m (8.5 Gbps)
OM1: .5m - 150m (2.125 Gbps); .5m - 70m (4.25 Gbps); .5m - 121 (8 .5Gbps)
OM3: .5m - 300m (2.125 Gbps); .5m - 150m (4.25 Gbps); .5m - 50m (8.5 Gbps)
