Circular MT Cable Assemblies Offer Reliable, High-Density Solution To Meet Ever-Changing Performance Demands
LISLE, Ill. – March 29, 2006 – To meet the escalating performance requirements mandated by a number of industries, Molex Incorporated has developed the Circular MT Cable Assemblies. As an extension of Molex’s MT product offering, these new Cable Assemblies provide a reliable, high-density solution for telecommunication equipment applications, such as hubs, routers and data centers; and instrumentation and medical equipment applications, such as test equipment, switches and video systems.

With their metal housing and stainless steel push-pull locking ring, the Circular MT Cable Assemblies offer a more robust MT ferrule-based interface, compared to ribbon-based optical interfaces that are traditionally rectangular. This enhanced design ensures improved alignment benefits, increased pull-strength and enhanced fiber management. The recessed MT ferrule in both the connector and receptacle housing ensures it is scoop-proof, preventing damage to the precise MT alignment pins and ferrule endface during connector handling and mating. The use of 12 to 72 loose fibers in a single round ruggedized cable improves fiber management over traditional flat ribbon assemblies by allowing 360-degree cable rotation.
“With performance demands and density requirements constantly increasing in critical, high-reliability applications, such as medical, military and telecommunications, Molex saw the need for a more robust cable assembly design,” said Tom Schiltz, product manager, Molex Incorporated. “The Circular MT Cable Assemblies expands Molex’s diverse MT ferrule-based product lines to offer our customers a complete end-to-end solution, allowing their systems to meet next generation demands.”
The Circular MT Cable Assemblies use industry standard MT ferrules with fiber counts ranging from 12 to 72 fibers. The o-ring and Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) Gasket provides a design that helps to isolate dust, moisture and EMI to ensure optimal performance.
The Circular MT is offered as a terminated cable assembly and customized for each customer’s application.
