Plenum MTP Elite to LC Breakout Cables

The MPO connector has long remained the best option in the industry when running complex multi-fiber installations. Over the years a higher performing alternative has been designed by U.S. Conec®; the MTP Elite® connector which incorporates many mechanical improvements resulting in a lower signal loss when physically interconnecting networking equipment.

Each of the MTP Elite breakout cable assemblies provided by OptoSpan utilizes the following mechanical improvements: a floating ferrule in order to maintain a secure connection, rounded metal pins to prevent damage to mating adapters, internal recessed metal pin clamp to prevent pin breakage, and an oval shaped internal spring to avoid fiber damage. In addition to these design improvements, the MTP Elite connector remains completely compatible with any MPO cable or device on the market.

The construction of the following breakout cable assemblies have been plenum rated and are suitable for installation in the inner ceilings and inner walls of homes and business. In order to comply with strict building regulations, this fiber optic cabling jacket has been designed to be fire-retardant and produce less smoke than standard “Riser” polyvinyl chloride (PVC) jackets.


MTP Cables with FiberShield

OptoSpan breakout cables are ideal for reducing the networking equipment required in short distances. Their ability to essentially funnel data from multiple sources into a single MTP Elite connector or distribute multiple fiber optic strands from a single source to multiple devices have proven to drastically reduce the amount of setup time, operational costs, and physical complexity within information technology environments.

All of the standard MTP Elite breakout cable assemblies may be modified as per customer specifications, which may include alterations such as polarity, key orientations, or length of fiber assembly.

Every MTP Elite connector used in the manufacturing of multi-fiber cable assemblies provided by OptoSpan have been sourced directly from U.S. Conec®.  While some other fiber optic distributors have chosen to unethically utilize only the connector housing and replace the floating ferrule, the most crucial component of the assembly, with a lower performing MPO version, OptoSpan is committed to providing only authentic and complete high performance MTP Elite connectors with each assemblies.
