MAT active device transmitter modules permit the direct coupling of signals into fibers terminated with E-2000™ connectors. MAR receivers perform the reverse receiving function. Boths types are carefully designed to offer a high degree of optical stability over widely-varying environmental and mechanical-stress conditions. Rugged construction ensures stable, repeatable operation over 1000 mate/demate cycles. MAT and MAR incorporate the following features: positive latching mechanism, spring-loaded shutters for eye-safety and compact footprint.
