MTD®-Modular Twisted-Pair Data-Connectors for Ethernet Applications
The Rosenberger MTD®- connection system is an Ethernet transmission system for jacketed Twisted-Pair cables. Special focus was set on characteristics of costs, weight and construction size. The MTD® system fullfil highest automotive requirements. The significant advantage is the impedance controlled transition area from cable to connector interface compared to existing solutions on the market.

Small construction size allows placing of multiple wire pairs in smallest installations space. The honeycomb structure provides low crosstalk and good symmetry and can be extended modularly. Design ensures ergonomics, workability and best electrical system performances.
