Hi

We need to connect a 1310 POS interface to a device with 1550 interface.

Is there converter for this type of setup? or any advise?

Thanks!

Theoretically , the wavelengths (1310,1550) correspond to the transmit and the recievers are wideband . You don't need a converter at the Rx end , since the Rx can detect light over a relatively wide range of wavelengths..

To be on the safe side , it would be prudent to measure the power levels of the incoming signal and make sure that it's within the acceptable levels for the Rx . The wavelengths should not be a cause for much concern.


Hope this helps ,
