12 Fiber SM MTP/MPO Cables

Fibertronics Standards

Where as multimode is only capable of short range (SR) data transfer, singlemode 9/125m is optimized for long range (LR) distances. Fibertronics 12 Fiber SM MPO cables use Corning SMF-28 Ultra laser optimized bend-insensitive fiber. This type of fiber allows for tighter bends in your cables, so you can route without worry. The fiber comes in the form of 12 fiber 3mm microdistribution cable, with yellow plenum jacket, which is rated for riser and plenum areas. The microdistribution format uses 12 fibers in a loose tube jacket with protective aramid yarn, allowing for more flexibility and smaller footprint than traditional ribbon cable. We can also build these to your custom specifications, including using a different brand of fiber, different type of jacket, or even customer-supplied cable. Options such as LSZH jacket, ribbon cable, armored cable, indoor/outdoor cable, and more are available, so please call one of our sales representatives to discuss your needs. Please keep in mind that MPO cables work best with loose fibers, so tight-buffered fibers may not be suitable for this. All of our singlemode MPO and MTP products use an 8 degree APC angle polish, to mitigate back reflection as per industry standards. It is possible to build these with a flat UPC polish, but standard singlemode applications will start seeing high levels of back reflection.

Gender Standards

MPO Gender Interface

MPO Genders can be counter-intuitive to newcomers to the technology. MPO cables are a plug, so they must be male, and transceivers have a port so they must be female, right? Wrong on both counts! MPOs are classified by the guide pins on the end of the connector, and require 1 male and 1 female to mate properly. MPO connectors use a barrel sleeve adapter that simply holds one male and one female MPO plug together. The male guide pins fit into the female holes to ensure precise fiber alignment. Attempting to mate two female connectors will result in a seemingly secure connection, but with extremely high loss,

Gender & Keys

and attempting to mate two male connectors will most likely damage one or both connectors due to the guide pins clashing. Transceivers and cassettes come with the sleeve adapter built in, and the industry standard is a male connection on the inside. Therefore, the standard for cables is female to female. This changes, however, when you need to extend a cable or connect two cables. You will then need a male to female cable plus adapter. If youre designing a multi-ferrule MPO trunk backbone cable, you might consider making this male to male, then patching to your hardware with female to female cables. We offer all combinations of genders, so contact us with your needs and we will be able to customize these for you.

Keys and Dots MPO connectors have a key on one of the flat sides added by the body, and the orientation of this key determines the cables polarity. MPO and MTP connectors also have a white dot on one side of the connector to denote where fiber 1 is.

Male

Female

The key and gender are assigned near the end of the process of manufacturing an MPO, by adding the body kit. Fibertronics is able to take completed MPO cables and change gender, or flip polarity from Method A to Method B and vice versa. Please note that flipping polarity will not be possible with a singlemode MPO cable, as these ferrules have an 8 angle polish. For this same reason, singlemode MPO cables cannot be used with aligned key polarity flip adapters. This process does carry the risk of breaking the delicate fibers inside the MPO body, even for trained professionals, so this service may come with a charge. Please call our sales representatives to learn more about our MPO services.

Method AStraight Cable

Key-Up to Key-DownPin 1 to Pin 1

Our singlemode MPO cables use Method A polarity as a standard. Fibertronics can also manufacture these cables as Method B, Method C, or a completely custom pinout. Because of the angle polish, these cables cannot have their polarity flipped once they have been finished. We also manufacture 24 fiber singlemode MPO cables; please call or email our sales staff for a quote.

Method A Cable

Standard Cassettes - Not Drawn to Scale. For Demonstration Purposes Only

Our standard cassettes utilize opposed key adapters, which also have a neutral polarity. Therefore, to plug the cable into the identical cassettes, the Method A cable must be rotated a half-turn, shown in the diagram as key up to key up. This keeps fiber 1 interfacing with fiber 1, shown as a blue line throughout. However this can be problematic for a very common application. When plugging in your duplex cables to the front of the cassette, your transmit lane is on the right, fiber 2 in orange. Plugging in standard duplex cables will result in a clash, as both sides attempt to transmit down the same lane. To resolve this, you would need to use crossover duplex cables on one side. Fibertronics duplex cables can be disassembled and flipped for a crossover variety. Please call or email our sales staff if you need a different polarity for a custom quote.

!Beware of Tx to Tx clash! Method A maintains Pin 1 to Pin 1 polarity, so utilize crossover duplex cables if you are working with duplex transceiver fiber optics applications.
