New MTP® Pro Push/Pull Connector now Available on All EDGE™, EDGE8® and Plug & Play™ Assemblies

All MTP connectors on EDGE™, EDGE8® and Plug & Play™ assemblies are currently upgraded to contain a new connector with push/pull boot to facilitate easier product handling.

The new MTP connector will combine CleanAdvantage™ features with easy field polarity and pinning change and the new push/pull boot to easily connect/disconnect in extreme dense applications.

  • Pin changing capability is available for both MM and SM connectors.
  • Polarity changing should be used only with MM connectors, as SM connectors have an angled end-face.
  • The tool and pin exchanger kit will remain unchanged.
  • This is a running change – you may receive mixed shipments of assemblies with previous MTP Pro connectors and assemblies with the new MTP Pro Push/Pull.

This new MTP connector will be USConec branded and will be used on all trunks, harnesses and patch cords as a standard at no extra cost.

Part numbers for the MTP assemblies utilizing the new connector will remain the same.

SPRs, EDGE and EDGE8 Solution Brochures as well as individual product data sheets will be updated in Q4 to reflect the change.
