The Infoprint 3000 can be located a maximum distance of 2 kilometers from the 8260 Multiprotocol Intelligent Switching Hub or RS/6000 processor using 62.5/125 micron multimode fiber. For more information, refer to 8260 publications.

The FDDI adapter cable PN 19G4867 (20 meters in length) is included with the printer. This 62.5/125 multimode fiber cable has a Subscriber Connector (also referred to as a SC connector) on each end. There are similar cables with other part numbers that can be ordered in addition to the one that is shipped with the machine. These cables have lengths of 2, 4, 6, 10 meters, and custom lengths. They can be ordered by calling 1-800-388-7080.
