Comprised of the proven US Conec MT Elite® ferrule technology, the MTP-16™ connector hardware is ideal for structured cabling applications supporting parallel or duplex links that require low insertion loss, using the MTP-16™ connectors for high density trunk cables efficiently aggregate 8 lane QSFP+/QSFP28 links while directly coupling into emerging 16x25G active devices.
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.
The MTP brand connector is an improved version of the MPO style connector, offering features that benefit the user to get the best possible connection, including a removable housing for reworking the ferrule or changing the connector gender post-assembly.
Other features such as the patented ferrule float and stainless steel guide pin tips (available on male versions) help offer greater durability and accuracy. With this 16-strand fiber optic cable, you can perform an array of functions at a fraction of the space used by standard connector cables.
