TM Multi-fiber Optical Connector
Supports Next Generation 400G Applications
The MTP-16™ connector family encompasses the 16 fiber MT ferrule, connector hardware, and bulkhead adapters. Utilizing the same external footprint as the existing traditional 12 fiber MT ferrule, the 16 fiber MT Elite® is available in one or two rows of 16 fibers and leverages all the proven features and technology of US Conec’s traditional PPS MT ferrules. The connector hardware offers a unique keying feature as opposed to the centered keying feature on the traditional MPO hardware. This new keying design, currently being standardized by TIA 604-18 (FOCIS 18) and IEC (61754-7-3), ensures proper mating of the MTP-16™ connector without inadvertently mating the 16 fiber connector hardware with standard MPO compliant hardware.
The MTP-16™ adapters are available in full or reduced flange mounting and opposed or aligned key orientation.
Durable MTP/MPO 16 brand couplers that provide quick connection for MTP 16/32 fiber connectors. The MTP 16 has an offest alignment key to help insure that a standard MTP connector cannot be installed. Connection integrity is provided by adapter latches which are locked into place by a spring loaded sliding mechanism on the MTP/MPO 16 brand connector plug.
Precision alignment is achieved with patented MTP/MPO 16 brand connector guide pins combined with the tightly controlled guide pin holes on MT ferrules. Numerous single port and ganged configurations are available to satisfy a variety of applications.
