Charlotte, NC (April 20, 2017)—Neutrik USA has announced opticalCON MTP24, a 24-channel fiber optic connection system based on MTP data connectors, due out in Q2. Designed for long cable runs and point-to-point wiring where high fiber counts are required, the system is intended for broadcast, pro AV and industrial applications.
The opticalCON MTP24 ADVANCED cable connector features a metal housing and heavy-duty strain relief. For less rugged applications, opticalCON MTP24 LITE cable connectors are also available. Cable connectors can be factory terminated onto a variety of qualified multimode and single mode (PC and APC) rugged cables.
The opticalCON MTP24 chassis connector accepts a standard MTP breakout cable at the rear, facilitating adaptation to LC, SC, or ST optical fiber connectors. It also features a built-in dust shutter, and a sealing gasket provides color coding and IP protection.
opticalCON MTP24 conforms to the IEC-61754-7 standard for interface dimensions for MPO-type (Multi Push-On) connectors, and cable and chassis connectors are dust and water resistant per IP65.
