An innovative solution that accepts all MPO connectors from 12 to 48 optical fibres has been introduced by SOURIAU. The UTS MPO is particularly suited for the railway, automation, and security markets that make use of fibre optics for greater efficiency and that demand quicker data transmission at a higher rate.

The solution has many notable technical components, such as an ergonomic 1/3-turn quick locking with an audible click. Through its robust thermoplastic UL94-V0 shell material, MPO protection, and high strength cable retention, the UTS MPO provides secure mating. The optical contact multi-sourcing design featuring MPO standard connectors from 12 to 48 optical fibres offers greater flexibility for customers.

The UTS-MPO also withstands harsh environmental conditions, such as temperatures ranging from -40 to +105°C and salt mist for 96 hours. Its dynamic IP67/IP68 rating makes it waterproof and able to endure underwater conditions. Furthermore, the solution’s UV resistance ensures that there is no mechanical degradation or corrosion after 5 years of exposure in natural environments. It is also RoHS compliant and conforms to China’s SJ/T1166-2006 standard.
