Features of MTP® Connectors

2021-08-03

Though MPO connectors and MTP® connectors use the same form factor and multiplex push-pull coupling type (SNAP), to improve optical and mechanical performance, MTP® connectors developed by US Conec feature some unique design characteristics, which contribute to the simple and fast installation, flexibility and stability of MTP® connectors.

Simple and Fast Installation

An MTP® connector comprises of multiple fibers in one ferrule. Compared with traditional fiber systems, MTP system installation time can be reduced by up to 75%. MTP® connector is designed with removable housing, which not only enables re-working and re-polishing the MT ferrule but also achieves quick transition of gender from male to female and vice versa. No matter it’s after assembly or in the field, the MTP® connectors with removable housing offers easy and effective solutions to users.

Flexibility

The MTP® connector is offered with four standard variations of strain relief boot giving more flexibility over the cable used in a wide array of applications, among which the short boot design is able to reduce the footprint by 45%, which is ideal for the applications where space is limited. There are also flexible strain relief boots enabling cables stretching in varying positions, from 0 to 90°, which greatly improve cable management in tight-space configurations.

Stability

Within the MTP® connector, there is a metal pin clamp, helping eliminates lost pins and center spring force. The spring design maximizes ribbon clearance for multi-fiber ribbon applications to prevent fiber damage. MTP® connectors use ferrules molded from thermoplastic, which is more resilient to varying temperatures. Such a ferrule material maintains a constant diameter for the guide holes, which creates more reliable physical connections.

Overall, MTP® connectors perform the superior features in the simple and fast installation, flexibility and stability. Though we cannot deny that MPO is more inexpensive than MTP in the perspective of cost, MTP is still the better choice for high performance network consideration.
