MicroClip MT ferrule

The proprietary MicroClip is a low-profile, low-mass spring loaded mechanical assembly that offers a rugged optical connection that is resistant for shock and vibration and is suitable for harsh environment. 

Features & Benefits

The MicroClip ferrule design has proven it can withstand a 1 kg live traffic fiber pull test on a 12-fiber ribbon cable pigtail mated to its LightABLE products (40G SR4 and 120G SR12), without any signal performance degradation. This result exceeds by a factor of 2 the requirements of Telecordia GR-468-CORE Fiber Integrity Side Pull Test and confirms the reliability of the fiber ribbon interface with the LightABLE and its MicroClip ferrule.

  • Pull force: 1 kg (twice the Telecordia GR-468 requirements)
  • Lightweight, low profile, and simple assembly

    Optical Interconnect Design Challenges in Space

    Aeronautical applications face many design challenges that are unique to their intended environment. The best practices for optical interconnect design for space applications include the use of radiation-resistant technology to defend against space radiation, the use of components and devices that are designed to operate in harsh environments, and meeting size, weight, and power (SWaP) and long-term reliability requirements. Finally, it is recommended to follow open standards like VPX and to look for solutions that comply with MIL and quality standards.
