Miniature Unit-Coupling (MU)
IEC 61 754-6 fiber optic connector
The MU connector system has all the popular mechanisms and optical qualities of the SC connector system in a highly compact “small form factor” (SFF) structure. The “Miniature Unit-coupling” MU is now recognised by IEC international standard organisation. The FO connector system offers a compact connector structure with a ø 1.25 mm ferrule. The MU connector is available as a Simplex or Duplex connector for single-mode (PC/APC) as well as multi-mode applications.The MU mating adapters are equipped with highly precise ceramic sleeves which guarantee excellent guiding of the 1.25 mm connector ferrule. All Diamond MU connectors are produced and tested in accordance with the standards EC 61 754-6 “Fibre Optic Connector Interfaces – Type MU Connection Family” and in accordance with TIA/EIA 604-17 “Fibre Optic intermateability standard – Type MU”.
Through extensive experience in developing and manufacturing SFF connectors, DIAMOND has combined their own unique multi-component ferrule with the patented and core to core alignment, which has been available on the market for years, in the new MU connector. The result is an MU connector with the best optical properties which have a positive effect on long-term operation and can thus prevent future disruptions. Thanks to the unique Diamond bi-component ferrule, these stand out from competitor products all the time. The Diamond quality can always be recognised thanks to this feature.
