NOVEMBER 1, 2007 -- US Conec Ltd. (search for US Conec) announces the immediate availability of the new MTP Shuttered Adapter. The panel mounted adapter used to mate MTP connectors is designed to offer superior dust protection.
The MTP Shuttered Adapter has a spring loaded shutter door that USConec says is easy to operate and provides protection from airborne particulates, greatly reducing the time required for installation, testing, and troubleshooting. An O-ring seal design keeps out signal degrading debris from the optics under the most extreme conditions, the company adds. The adapters were placed in a sealed chamber and subjected to ½ cup (0.12 liter) of ISO Arizona Road Dust that circulated for 10 minutes while blown by a fan per the requirements of GR-326 with no contamination permeating the O-ring seal. The new adapter design also passed typical tests for thermal aging, vibration, impact, and durability.
