MT Ferrule

MT Ferrule

The MT ferrule is a multi-fiber, plastic ferrule with a square end-face of 6.4x2.5 mm and fiber pitch 0.25mm, widely applied in MPO connectors and AOC cables. 12 and 24-fiber mt ferrules are the most commonly used types. As one of the professional China ferrule manufacturers and suppliers, T&S provides high-quality MT ferrules.


MT Ferrules Features

MT ferrules manufactured by high precision mold technology meet international standards such as IEC 61754-3-31, GR-135 etc.


MT Ferrule Dimensions

MT is short for mechanical transfer. MT ferrule is a multi-core polyphenylene sulfide ferrule, which is also called PPS ferrule, with a square end-face of 6.4×2.5 mm and 0.25mm pitch between adjacent fiber holes. The alignment mechanism includes two stainless steel guide pins that fit into precisely molded alignment holes.

As one of the professional ferrule suppliers, T&S produces 12-core, 16-core and 24-core MT MPO ferrules at different grades like MM Standard, MM low loss and SM Standard and SM low loss.

MT Ferrules in MPO Connector

MT ferrule plays an important role in the connection as a key component in MPO ferrule connectors. By mating with another MT ferrule, the final quality of connection decides the optical performances insertion loss and return loss.

As an important element, MT Ferrule is generally applied in high-density fiber networks. Except for MTP/MPO ferrule, it is also assembled with MT/Fiber Array as devices used in modules and optical transceivers.


MT Ferrule Applications

  • FTTx hardened connector cabling infrastructure

  • MPO cable assemblies

  • Optical backplane connectivity for OBO architectures
