I'm running a fibre optic cable from my head unit to the boot where my processor is mounted. My question is, are fibre optic cables susceptible to noise or interference like RCA's are?
not too sure about how they are effected.
however as they are glass electrical current shsouldnt effect it (however some copper could be in there i cannot remember that part too well).
however we ran it seperate to the power cables which is the case with all control wiring to cut out all interference. although it may be different in cars.
but from being at work, we ran some fibre optic (some being multiple runs of over 100m each time).
we had to be very careful with the radius's they could be bent around and also left service loops incase of breaks.
oh and make sure when your running it in. you tape up any cut ends. as you dont want that glass in your hands/other body parts.
how about we make the pedals out of sticky rubber and the shoes with steel spikes. at least my shins would like thatOriginally Posted by ari666
^^ what these guys said. pretty much its light in a pipe, so dont kink it or crush it.
Done and done. OP, you should post up some pictures of your install in the 'show off your install' thread.
My mistake, great work mate. Do you have any other pictures, particularly of the front stage install?
No. Not as yet. That's one of the things I'm changing. I want to have a crack at MEASQ this year, it something I've never done or contemplated doing before.
Fibre optic cables transmit a flash of light which represents the digital 1s and 0s. As it does not carry a current, it is not affected by EMF radiation causing noise
