High-density Circular MT Cable Assemblies designed for critical, high-reliability applications.
Molex's rugged, high-density circular MT cable assemblies are designed to meet requirements mandated by telecommunication, military, medical and many other industries. Utilizing the low-profile Circular MT or 1-by-3 circular connectors, these cable assemblies are designed to meet or exceed the mechanical specifications of traditional data communication and telecommunication inter-chassis connections.
The circular MT assemblies use a single MT ferrule housed in a nickel-plated, metal-connector shell. Fiber counts range from 12 to 72 fibers. The metal housing and stainless steel push-pull locking ring provide a more robust design than the current industry standard MTP* and MPO connectors polymer housings and latches. The MT ferrule is recessed in both the circular connector and receptacle housings, providing an additional improvement over traditional MT connectors.
The 1-by-3 circular MT connector housings utilize three MT ferrules in a nickel-plated, metal-connector shell. Fiber counts range from 36 fibers, up to 72 fibers by using either 12 or 24 fiber MT ferrules. The1-by-3 circular MT connector housing uses a stainless steel, locking mechanism to provide a robust connection.
The circular MT and 1-by-3 circular MT products ensure improved alignment benefits, increased pull-strength and the use of new round, ribbon-cable constructions. Circular MT connectors will be sold only as terminated cable assemblies.
