This connector has dimensions of 5 mm (t) x 13 mm(W) x 10 mm(L) and fiber space is 0.3 mm and alignment-hole space is 7 mm; five fibers of 0.125 mm in diameter and two alignment-holes of 1.4 mm in diameter are positioned in the line in the center of end face. The guide rod which is inserted in the alignment-hole has a diameter of 1.4 mm + or - 0.5 micron.
