Demand for MTP/MTO connectivity is being driven by the development of 40G and 100G transceivers with MPO ports commonly used for data transmission over short distances to connect ports in switches in data centres, and to connect multimode transceivers added to existing networks to other 10G host equipment such as routers, switchers, servers and storage.
To ensure reliable connectivity the connector body is made from black nickel-plated die-cast metal and the insert made from ABS/PC rated to UL94-VO, and features a restraining clamp for secure cable connection.
For system security a dust cover is available for when the connector is not in use.
The standard range of FeedThrough connectors from Cliff mount into an industry standard XLR, 23mm, cutout allowing 16 connectors, from a wide range of variants, to be conveniently mounted on 19” rack panels which Cliff can supply pre-assembled.
Applications include audio, broadcast, AV and communications installations, medical, education and research and industrial control.
The recently introduced DualSLIM FeedThrough connector series is just 19mm wide allowing 20 connectors to be assembled on a 19” rack panel.
In addition to the applications above the DualSLIM is commonly used for NUC computers and mini-PCs, such as Raspberry Pi.
