MU

Description: 

These patch cords are simplex or duplex pieces of cable of certain length and external diameter, terminated from both ends with connectors MU. Connector MU was brought into the world by Japanese telecummonication company NTT. It is designed on the base of early developed by the same company optical connector SC, which is widely spreaded nowadays. MU dimensions are approximately twice smaller, than dimensions of SC. This was reached by using of small diameter ferrule – 1.25mm. As all tiny optical connectors this connector is designed for creagint of optical systems with high port density. Specifications of the connector MU are approximately the same as for popular connector LC, which also has ferrule of diameter 1.25mm.

Advantages:

  • Small size and high-density positioning;
  • Ferule 1.25mm made from zirconia ceramics;
  • Low induced losses;
  • Low reflection;
  • High reliability.

Fields of use:

  • Fiber-optic communication systems;
  • Fiber-optic data transmission systems;
  • Fiber-optic networks CATV;
  • Local area networks;
  • Global networks;

Colour marking:

Connector’s colour indicates the method of end surfacing :

  • Black - surfacing type PC
  • Blue - surfacing type UPC (Ultra PC)
  • Green - surfacing type APC (Angle PC)
  • Beige - applied in patch cords with multi-mode fiber

Patch cord colour indicates the type of used optical fiber:

  • Yellow - single-mode fiber
  • Orange - multi-mode fiber

* - Term ‘repeatability’ means range of induced losses for single item.
**You can order manufacturing of the patch cord with fiber NZDS ( ITU-T G.655 ) and also with multimode fiber 50/125um

Cords are supplied with a length of 1, 3, 5m or any other length ordered
External coating of the optical cable is made from PVC, it is possible to manufacture it from LSZH material if ordered
