Cable Difference

If I currently have a 62.5 cable does it matter which adapter I purchase? For example my Fibre cable is 62.5/125 and I purchase the 50/125 adapter will this cause issues?

If one connects a 50/125 fiber to a 62.5/125 fiber, the smaller core of the 50/125 fiber easily couples to the 62.5/125 fiber and is very insensitive to offset and angular misalignment. However, the larger core of 62.5/125 fiber overfills the core of the 50/125 fiber, creating excess loss.

Mixing 50/125 and 62.5/125 fiber in one cable run is not sensible. If one is using 50/125 fiber instead of 62.5/125, all components - cable and patchcords should be 50/125.
