If I have the FTV40D2M1ST can I use single mode fiber to go to the FRV40D2M1ST?

Cause

Incorrect fiber modules were ordered with regards to the type of fiber cable already installed on the site.

Resolution

You must use matching transmitter and receiver fiber modules to match the fiber cable already installed. Multi-mode fiber cable will only work with the Multi-mode transmitters/receivers and Single-mode fiber cable will only work with the Single-mode transmitters/receivers.

If you try to use Multi-mode fiber cable with a single-mode fiber transmitter/receiver, or, vice versa, there will be too much loss introduced into the system and therefore it will not work properly.
