    IEC 61754-7 fiber optic connector

Precise and versatile MPO connector

The MPO connector system is a high density multi-fiber connector system based on a precision molded MT ferrule. Diamond's MPO connector is available in 4, 8, 12 and 24 channel versions for both PC and APC and for multimode and singlemode fiber. The MPO push-pull connector system offers IEC 61754-7 and TIA/EIA 604-5B compliance and low cost per connector in high density applications.

The versatile, high performance interconnection technology allows multiple fibers to be connected simultaneously. MPO connectors provide a very efficient solution for many applications. They are often used in high-performance networks to ensure high data rates and stable connections. They enable companies to achieve gigabit speeds over several meters or kilometers.

Structure of MPO connectors

The MPO connector assembly consists of a plug and a coupling device. The connector is designed to be plugged into active optical transmitting and receiving equipment without the need for additional conversion to another connector system. This allows multiple optical fibers to transmit or receive data signals simultaneously. The main advantage of MPO connectors is their high capacity: since each connector can accommodate up to 24 fibers, MPO cables can be used to transmit very large amounts of data at speeds of up to 40 Gb/s per channel. In addition, the modular design of the connectors ensures that network installations can be expanded flexibly and require minimal maintenance.

MPO connectors also offer installation advantages: they are very easy to handle and require minimal equipment for use in the field. In addition, their universal fit accommodates a wide variety of combinations - both singlemode and multimode fiber - so that different types of fiber can be connected using the same adapter.

Multi-fiber fanouts with MPO connectors are multi-fiber connectors or multimode connectors on multi-fiber ribbon cables (as opposed to round cables) with single fiber connectors on 900 µm cores on the other end. They facilitate the splitting of ribbon fibers into single fibers and feature kink protection with strain relief, an innovative design for stacking multiple fanouts, and a compact size for high packing density and reliability. They are available with MFS/MPO multi-fiber connectors as well as industry standard single fiber connectors.

With these benefits, it is no wonder that so many businesses choose Expanded Beam Interconnect solutions for their connectivity needs. After all, they provide an easy-to-install solution that requires virtually no maintenance while delivering outstanding performance in any environment.
