MU connector

The MU connector, which is essentially the same as the Mini- SC connector, looks very similar to it, but is only about half the size. Of this compact, space-saving SFF connector, which is specified according to IEC 61754-6, 5 connectors can be accommodated on one height unit(U).

The MU connector is available for gradient fibers and monomode fibers in normal ground and beveled ground. It has a push-pull locking mechanism. The MU connector is used rather rarely. If, then mainly in local networks and by telecom operating companies such as Japan-Telecom.
