NAB 2017: Neutrik USA Announces opticalCON MTP24 Fiber-Optic Solutions
Neutrik USA (C9515), the leading supplier of robust and reliable professional connectivity solutions for audio, video, and data, has announced opticalCON MTP24, a 24-channel fiber-optic–connection system based on MTP data connectors. With its small form factor and robust design, opticalCON MTP24 is suited for long cable runs and point-to-point wiring where high fiber counts are required. The system, based on Neutrik’s successful opticalCON QUAD, is optimized for broadcast, pro-A/V, and industrial applications.
The opticalCON MTP24 chassis connector accepts a standard MTP breakout cable at the rear, facilitating easy adaptation to LC, SC, or ST optical-fiber connectors. The built-in dust shutter ensures minimal maintenance. The 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 as widely used in the telecom and data-technology industries. Cable and chassis connectors are dust- and water-resistant per IP65 when mated and can be cleaned easily without any special tools.
Says David Kuklinski, applications manager for Neutrik USA, “Neutrik’s new opticalCON MTP24 significantly ups the ante in terms of the number of channels that can be transmitted in a compact and secure manner. This should prove invaluable within the broadcast, pro A/V, and industrial-application sectors. It is important to note that opticalCON is only assembled by Certified opticalCON Cable Assemblers (COCAs) to ensure optimum performance. opticalCON MTP24 is yet another example of Neutrik’s commitment to ensuring the highest levels of signal-transfer performance and reliability.”
Neutrik’s opticalCON MTP24 cable and chassis connector products will be available in the second quarter.
