SFP+Passive Copper

SFP+ copper cables enable data transfer rates up to 10 Gb/s per channel at lengths up to 8.5 meters, meeting current Standards Specifications. Applications include high – performance computing (HPC), enterprise networking and network storage markets where higher bandwidth signaling is required. SFP+ copper cables support the 10Gigabit-Ethernet, 8G Fibre Channel and 10G Fibre Channel over Ethernet specifications.

Meritec’s SFP+ assembly utilizes a shielded twin-ax cable construction maintaining 100 – ohm impedance matching within 5 ohms to ensure interoperability. Meritec’s fully shielded assembly incorporates die cast metal housings designed specifically for high frequency data rates minimizing EMI leakage. Meritec’s patent pending pull style latch assures a robust, positive locking attachment and is designed for both standard and belly to belly applications based on our customers requirements.
