With fiber there are SX and LX and other specification for distance, but is there anything like this for copper connections or is it "one size fits all"?

SX, LX, or ZX, different in power transmission then more power more far it is, bandwidth is unlimited. (fiber mode, is the other reason)
in copper, there is no power transmission issues, it spesification depend on resistancy, cable size/diameter,  interference between each core, so it's bandwidth limited, more higher the bandwidth more shorter the cable can accomodate.
