MTP connector description

MTP connectors which are upgrade version of the former MPO. MTP is with better mechanical and optic fiber performance compared with MPO connector. Both the MTP and MPO series cables are multi fiber connectors. There are many fiber optic channels in each single connector. Because of such multi fiber feature, these connectors need to use with multi fiber cables, especially the ribbon multi fiber optic cables.

MTP connector supply

We offer single mode and multimode MTP connector and MTP cables.

FEATURES of MTP connector 

The connector housing is removable

Increased ferrule float for improved mechanical performance

High precision metal pin clamps

An oval spring allows for more ribbon clearance between the ribbon(s) and the spring

High precision MT ferrule molding

The MTP is offered in three versions for a variety of applications:

Jacketed cable

Bare ribbon fiber

Short version (reduces "footprint" by 45%) for use in space limited (PCB) applications 

The difference between MTP connector and MPO connector?

MPO is Multiple-Fibre Push-On connector while MTP connector is simply tunned MPO connector with better optical and mechanical performance. MTP connector is designed by US Conec Ltd.,

What are the advantages of MTP connector?

Removable connector housing – possibility to change the gender of connector even after assembly. Better physical contact – done by special spring design and superior design of guide pins.

Is MTP connector compatible with MPO connector/adapter?

MTP connectors are fully compatible with MPO installations.
