Molex Inc. has expanded its Circular MT cable assemblies line to meet the rising performance demands mandated by a number of industries, including telecommunications, military and medical. The new 1-by-3 Circular MT Connector and adapter provide a reliable, high-density solution designed to meet or exceed the mechanical specifications of traditional inter-chassis connections, and will be on display at NXTcomm 2007, booth 3754.
With their metal housing and stainless steel push/twist locking ring, the Circular MT cable assemblies offer a more robust MT ferrule-based interface, compared to traditional ribbon-based optical connectors. Both the Circular MT Adapter and 1-by-3 Circular MT Adapter housings feature a deep, polarized mating cavity that reduces alignment-pin hole damage that may occur with traditional MT connector systems. Additionally, features including cable management clips, shutters, removal tabs and cleaning tools, provide a complete solution to meet customers’ design and installation requirements.
“As an industry leader, Molex expanded its Circular MT product offering to provide solutions for increasing performance demands and density requirements in the medical, military and telecommunications industries,” said Tom Schiltz, product manager, Molex Incorporated. “Molex felt it was necessary to expand its diverse MT ferrule-based product line to offer customers a complete end-to-end solution, allowing their systems to meet next-generation demands.”
Designed to fit round, multi-fiber jackets, the 1-by-3 Circular MT Connectors employ the use of 36 to 72 loose fibers in a single round ruggedized cable that allows for 360 degree rotation. The enhanced design features of the 1-by-3 Circular MT ensure improved alignment benefits, increased pull-strength and enhanced fiber management.
The 1-by-3 Circular MT Connector is offered as a terminated cable assembly and customized for each customer’s application. For more information on the extensive optical product offering Molex provides, visit: www.molex.com/product/circularmt.html.
