MSL4048 LTO 6 FC fibre channel - singlemode or multimode fibre?

We ordered a MSL4048 FC library with 2 LTO drives. We requested singlemode fibre connection as we wanted to put it in a cross site data centre from the SAN and it would only have single mode fibre run back to the SAN.

It has been delivered and has 2 C0H28A drives (LTO-6 Ultrium 6250 SAS Drive Upgrade Kit For HP StoreEver MSL Library).

 

These don't say multimode or single mode so I want to check before I move to other datacentre.

 

Anyone help on this? Can you even get a library with single mode?

The MSL libraries only support multi-mode cables, and have maximum cable lengths defined by the type of cables used and the desired transfer speeds.
