SMC Connectors/Adapters | Molex
SMC connectorized ribbon fiber cable assemblies provide reliable high performance interconnects of up to 24 fibers in a small footprint. The SMC connectors utilize the precision molded NTT compatible ferrule that connects from 4 up to 24 fibers using bare ribbon or ruggedized ribbon cable. Alignment between mating ferrules is accomplished using 2 precision guide pins that are pre-installed in the designated male connector. The SMC connectors feature an easy-to-grip and actuate side-latching mechanism.
SMC to HBMT or SMC to BMTP cable assemblies are available to interconnect optical devices using the SMC interfaces on the daughter card to Molex Fiber Optics HBMT and BMTP adapters on the backplane.
Multiple transitions between ribbon cable to individual fibers are available to meet a variety of fiber routing requirements. Fanouts to single fiber leads connectorized with Molex industry standard LC, MU, SC, FC, and ST connectors are available to interconnect with the current installed base of transmitters, receivers and patch panels.
