MTP® Fibre-Optic Fiber-Optic Feedthrough Connector
Secure through-panel connection for high-speed data transfer.
From CLIFF™ Electronics.
CLIFF™ Electronics, leaders in the design, development and manufacture of connectors and test equipment, have introduced a new addition to their market-leading feedthrough connector range. The US Conec MTP® brand MPO feedthrough connector allows fast and reliable through-panel connection of standard 12 to 72 multi-mode optical fibre fiber cables.
Demand for MTP (MPO) connectivity is being driven by the development of 40 Gbit/s and 100 Gbit/s ethernet transceivers with MPO ports. These are commonly used for data transmission over short distances to connect data centre center switch ports and for connecting multi-mode transceivers to other 10 G host equipment such as routers, switchers, servers and storage in existing networks.
To ensure reliable connectivity the connector body is made from black, nickel plated, die-cast zinc and the insert made from ABS / PC rated to UL 94 V-0. It features a restraining clamp for secure cable connection and a dust cover is available for when the connector is not in use.
John Hall, managing director of CLIFF™ Electronics. comments,
“The latest data processing technologies require the fastest transfer speeds and interconnects that can be relied upon for trouble-free operation. Our new fibre-optic fiber-optic feedthrough connector gives system builders an ideal solution for control and patch panel assembly. It may be mounted on rack panels alongside other connectors from our extensive feedthrough range.”
The standard range of feedthrough connectors from CLIFF™ mount into an industry standard XLR-format, 24 mm diameter, cut-out. This allows 16 connectors to be conveniently mounted on 19″ rack panels which can be supplied pre-assembled. Applications include audio, broadcast, AV, communications installations, medical, education, research and industrial control.

The recently introduced space-saving DualSLIM feedthrough connector series is just 19 mm wide allowing 20 connectors to be assembled on a 19″ rack panel. In addition to the applications above the DualSLIM is commonly used for NUCs and mini-PCs, such as the Raspberry Pi.
