Issue Details

I have a GPIB-140A device and I want to know if it is compatible with a single mode or with a multi-mode fiber optic cable. 


The GPIB-140A, due to the characteristics of its transmitter and receiver, is designed to support multi-mode fibers. Single-mode fiber optic cables may work, but National Instruments cannot guarantee it.
