What is Mechanical Transfer Registered Jack (MTRJ)?

Posted by 8 April, 2018 (1) Comment

MTRJ is an abbreviation of Mechanical Transfer Registered Jack and refers to a connector used in fiber optic cables. This connector is small in size and this has made it very popular among users who have small form factor devices. It houses two fibers and joins locating pins that are found on the plug and can have about 12 fibers.

It is one of the recent connectors that are currently being used. It uses two fibers and which are incorporated into one design that is similar to the one used by the RJ45 connector. The alignment is done through the two pins that are connected to this connector. Unlike the single fiber connectors, the MTRJ has lower termination costs and more density for the cable management and electronics hardware.

Toslink (Toshiba-Link) was initially developed by Toshiba for its CD players. However, the use of this optical fiber connection system is currently not limited to CDs only but can be used to connect satellite dish receivers, DVD players and other equipment. It is a data transmission system that uses optical signals instead of the usual electrical signals thus its more reliable. Toslink has 4 major components: the transmission module that enables conversion of the electrical signals to optical signals. However, the receiving module reconverts the optical signals into electrical signals.

The other components are optical fiber cables that act like the physical transmission lines while the optical connectors enhance the connection of the receiving and transmission modules to the optical fiber cable.
