SFP Module

The Ethernet connection uses a small form factor pluggable (SFP) module which can be removed from the Stagebox by lifting the small lever and pulling out the complete module. The SFP can be replaced with any Gigabit Ethernet SFP with an 1000BASE-X interface, including single mode and multimode fibre optic versions.
