What are the differences between MPO and MTP fiber connections


一: Types of fiber optic connectors: two

Type 1 :MPO is short for multi-fiber pull off.The connector core has more than one fiber core, which is mechanically stuck into place.

Type 2: the MTP connector is a high performance MPO connector with multiple innovative designs. Compared with the general MPO connector, the MTP fiber connector has been enhanced in both optical and mechanical performance.

二: Optical fiber connector reference implementation standard:

MPO connectors: refer to iec-61754-7 and EIA/ tia-604-5 (aka FOCIS 5).

MTP connector: the MTP connector is fully compliant with all professional standards for MPO connectors, including EIA/ tia-604-5 FOCIS 5 and iec-61754-7.

三: Fiber optic connector internal system

What is MTP core?

MTP is mechanical docking transmission,

Insert cores for multiple cores (usually 12 cores).

The performance of any MPO connector can be improved if the deviation of the guide wire and molding process can be reduced during production.     

What is MTP?Fiber optic connector?

MPO connectors are compatible with industry standards, which means it is feasible to replace MPO connectors with MTP connectors for better performance.Most MPO connectors designed in the old model have limited performance and cannot provide the same high performance as MTP fiber connectors.     

四: Why are MTP connectors described as high-performance MPO connectors?

1. The design of MTP is protected by patent, and its performance and availability are greatly improved.MTP core design ensures no loss of performance during rework and regrinding during production.Positive and negative can be flexibly changed even in the field after assembly, and interference detection can be conducted after core assembly.Floating cores of MTP optical fiber connectors can improve the transmission performance of mechanical docking.The elliptic guide PIN of the MTP fiber connector is made of stainless steel. The elliptic design enables the MTP fiber connector to maintain high performance transmission for a longer period of time.The MTP fiber optic connector has a metal pin clip to hold the push ring in place.MTP fiber optic connector springs are designed to maximize band clearance for 12-core and multi-core band applications.

2 MTP optical fiber connector has at least four standard matching parts, can adapt to different types of optical cables, more practical, including: loose-sleeve structure of the circular optical cable;Ribbon optical cable with outer ellipse;Ribbon bare fiber;Ultra short tail sleeve connector parts, very suitable for application in narrow space, reduce the volume of 45%.

五: Fiber optic connector cleaning and maintenance methods:

Can MTP cores be cleaned in a conventional way?The best way to clean the dirt and oil on MTP cores that affect optical properties is to use an advanced dry cloth cleaning component, such as ntt-at OPTIPOP, which is simple because it involves only a single channel.When using the above cleaning components, pollutants will be completely removed. On the contrary, although using low-quality cloth or cotton swabs can remove the pollutants on the surface of optical fiber, the dirt will still exist at the edge of the core insertion, and the end face of the core insertion will be easily worn, resulting in serious data loss.OPTIPOP series cleaning components are specially designed for Yin and Yang fiber connectors, and can also be used for single core ceramic inserts.OPTIPOP box and card cleaners are made of replaceable clean cotton cloth. They are durable and cost less than traditional cleaning methods.
