Neutrik USA just announced the opticalCON MTP24, a 24-channel fiber optic connection system based on MTP data connectors. Designed for long cable runs and point-to-point wiring where high fiber counts are required, it’s based on opticalCON QUAD and they’ve designed two different connector options. For rugged applications, the MTP24 ADVANCED is a cable connector that uses a metal housing and a heavy-duty strain relief and for less rugged applications they’ve made something called the opticalCON MTP24 LITE cable connectors.
The opticalCON MTP24 chassis connector accepts a standard MTP breakout cable at the rear for easy adaptation to LC, SC or ST optical fiber connectors. The sealing gasket provides color coding and IP protection and opticalCON MTP24 conforms to the IEC-61754-7 standard for interface dimensions for MPO-type (Multi Push-On) connectors.
