Arrayed Fiberoptics’ MJC Fiber Connector features a new MPO mechanical structure with adjustable spring force that completely solves the guide hole damage problem typical MPO connectors face, says the company. The MJC fiber connector has a slider that controls the spring force. The slider has two positions, front and back, that correspond to the loose and tight states of the spring. When the slider is in the back position and the spring is at the loose state, the lateral movement of MT ferrule is flexible, so that when the guide pin is inserted into the guide hole, the guide hole is not damaged. Once the guide pin is securely in the guide hole, the slider can be moved to the forward position so that the spring has the required force.

Judge’s Comment: “The inclusion of two springs in the MPO connector is exactly the type of innovation that is necessary to solve an age-old challenge. Kudos to Arrayed Fiberoptics for outside-the-box, inside-the-ferrule thinking.”
