MT-RJ stands for Mechanical Transfer Registered Jack. MT-RJ is a fiber-
to its small size. Housing two fibers and mating together with locating pins
on the plug, the MT-RJ comes from the MT connector, which can contain up
to 12 fibers.
What is the use of this fiber connector?
The MT-RJ is one of the newly emerging small form factor connectors that
are becoming more common in the networking industry. Also, the MT-RJ
utilizes two fibers and integrates them into a single design that looks
similar to an RJ45 connector. Alignment is completed through the use of
two pins that mate with the connector. Transceiver jacks found on NICs and
equipment typically have the pins built into them. As a matter of fact, the
MTRJ is commonly used for networking applications. Its size is slightly
smaller than a standard phone jack and just as easy to connect and
disconnect. It’s half the size of the SC Connector it was designed to replace.
This connector is a small form-factor Fiber optic connector which
resembles the RJ-45 connector used in Ethernet networks. Compared to
single-fiber terminations such as SC, the MT-RJ Connector offers
lower Termination cost and greater density for both electronics and cable
management hardware. This connector is significantly lower in cost and
be spaced the same as copper, effectively doubling the number of fiber
fiber-to-the-desktop solutions more competitive
