LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- US Conec, a global leader in the design and development of high-density optical interconnects, announces the next generation multi-fiber MTP® connector—MTP® PRO. This state-of-the-art connector ushers in a new era by bringing simple and robust field configurability, ease of use, and enhanced performance to the industry leading MTP® family. The MTP® PRO connector leverages all the proven features and technology of US Conec's existing MTP® connectors while providing optimal flexibility and enhanced performance.
Polarity and pin reconfiguration of cables produced with the MTP® PRO connector is easily performed in the field without disassembly of the connector and requires no special skill or training. The MTP® PRO guide pins can be effortlessly installed or removed countless times with no need to ever handle loose pins and no reduction in pin retention force. The novel pin holder design far exceeds the industry standards for pin retention force ensuring pin transfer or loss of pins in the field will never occur. One simple insertion of the MTP® PRO connector into a polarity change port transforms the cable from one polarity methodology to another.
The MTP® PRO brings simplified use to the MPO format by offering true push-pull functionality with a large integrated insertion and extraction sleeve without compromising connector footprint. Enhanced latching and alignment features of the MTP®PRO reduce debris generation resulting in trouble free installations.
