MPO/MTP Cable Assemblies

MPO/MTP Cable Assemblies

MPO Optical System consists of MPO Cable Assembly and MPO hybrid break-out which are available in SM and MM versions. MPO cable assemblies are multi-fibre cables using single MPO connectors of 6, 8, 12 & 24 that are used to interconnect pre-terminated devices. The MTP/MPO assemblies are suitable for highdensity back plane and Printed Circuit Board (PCB) solutions in data and telecom systems providing significant space and cost savings. Precision moulded thermoplastic MT ferrules together with metal guide pins and precise housing dimensions ensure fibre alignment when mating. Push-pull latching mechanism with audible click ensures proper connection.

MPO (MT) Optical System offers the following complete product set to provide unique advantages to the installer and extremely easy network installation:
