Array Connector and Adapter System | Molex

array_adapter_large

The Molex array connector and adapter system provides a high fiber density chassis-to-chassis interconnect solution. Constructed of nickel plated aluminum, the array connector system provides an extremely rugged interconnect that is designed to shield and isolate EMI.

Molex' s Array connector and adapter system is utilized on the card front panel or chassis back panel. Robust polarized guide pins ensure consistent and repeatable mating. The Array System exceeds Telcordia 1435 Pull Test Requirements with a robust back shell and a variety of ribbon cable retention mechanisms. Multiple back shell options allow system design engineers to customize their cable management strategy.

Array terminations utilize the industry standard NTT developed MT ferrule as the optical interconnect. A high-density interconnection is achieved by increasing the number of MT ferrules in the array connector either as a single or dual row of 4 to 8 MT ferrules per row. The individual MT ferrules may be populated with 4, 8, 12 or 24 fibers depending on the optical requirements.

  • Multiple back shell designs
  • Utilizes industry standard NTT MT ferrules as the optical interface
  • Jackscrews secure connector and mating adapter
  • Protects internal fibers while providing excellent EMI shielding
  • Increases real-estate on the chassis front or back panel
  • Allows for customization of the fiber routing in a system
  • Provides a scalable solution as the optical requirements increase
  • Providing a robust mechanical interface

Applications:

  • Datacommunication networks
  • Telecommunication networks
  • Chassis-to-chassis connections
