MT optical-fiber connector

The mechanically transferable optical-fiber connector accommodates 24 multimode fibers within the same space as 12-fiber connectors currently in use. The connector is made of a thermoset epoxy resin using transfer molding technology. Insert pins are positioned by V-grooves in upper and lower metal molds to form the connector guide pin holes and fiber holes. The maximum offset of the fiber hold position (ferrule eccentricity error) is about 3 microns, while the precision of the V-grooves and the spacer between the upper and lower V-grooves is within 1 micron.
