With the versatility of an edge card connector, the High Density Backplane MT (HBMT) provides a smooth transition from PC board components to the backplane. Utilizing a standard MT ferrule as the optical interface, the HBMT provides up to 96 Fibre interconnects. It is ideal for connecting backplanes and cross connect systems in computing equipment, telecommunication equipment including transmitters, switches, multiplexers and demultiplexers. Together with Molex's FlexPlane™ Optical Flex Circuitry System, the High Density Backplane MT provides a total optical backplane solution.


  • High density up to 96 Fibres in 1.6" by .62" by 2.1" - small footprint increases board real estate
  • Mechanical float on either the daughtercard or motherboard side in the X, Y, and Z-axis which allows for card cage tolerances
  • Rivet or screw mounting - rivets are fast, no loose parts; screws are removable
  • Uses MT ferrule as the optical interface: 2, 4, 8, 12, 24 Fibre versions, Single-mode and Multimode - scalable density that can be increased as needed
