MTP® (MPO) Fibre Cables
What is an MTP® connector?
The MTP connector, a registered trade mark of US Conec, is a high performance MPO connector with multiple engineered product enhancements to improve optical and mechanical performance when compared to generic MPO connectors. It is in complete compliance with all MPO connectors and is 100% inter-mateable. Generic MPO connectors are limited in performance and are not able to offer the high performance levels of the US Conec MTP connector.
What makes the MTP® connector superior to generic MPO connectors?
The MTP connector has features and benefits that are not available on generic MPO connectors, including a removable housing which allows the customer to re-work and re-polish the MT ferrule, change the gender after assembly or even in the field, and scan the ferrule interferometrically after assembly. The MTP also has a floating ferrule to improve mechanical performance, stainless steel elliptical guide pin tips and a metal pin clamp with features for centering the push spring. The MTP connector spring design maximises ribbon clearance for twelve fibre and multi-fibre ribbon applications to prevent fibre damage. It is offered with four strain relief boot variations to meet a wide array of applications.
What is an MTP® Elite?
The Elite version offers lower insertion loss compared to the standard MTP. The maximum for a mated pair is 0.35db vs 0.6db for Multimode, and 0.35db vs 0.75db for Singlemode fibre*.
*Typical IL achieved in production is far better, averaging 0.1db for SM on the Elite for example.
Is the MTP® connector an MPO connector?
Yes. The MTP connector is a high performance MPO connector engineered for better mechanical and optical performance.
