Features and Benefits
High-density Circular MT Optical Cable Assemblies are 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connector,
these cable assemblies are designed to meet or exceed the mechanical
specificationsoftraditionaldatacommunication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 MPO connector 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. Recessing the ferrule ensures it is scoop-proof, preventing
damage to the precise MT alignment pins and ferrule endface during handling
and mating of the connector.
The circular MT receptacle housing features a deep, polarized mating cavity
which will reduce alignment pin hole damage that may occur during the
mating process with traditional MT connector systems.
Molex’s circular MT cable assemblies offer a more robust MT ferrule-based
interface versus ribbon-based optical interfaces, which have traditionally
beenrectangular.Thisnewdesignensures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.
Circular MT Cable Assemblies complement Molex’s existing line of MT
products. For more information on Molex’s extensive optical product offering,

Molex offers the industry’s only metal-housing LC2+
connectors, the ideal high-performance, discrete-fiber
solution for use in severe operating environments in
industrial, telecom, military and medical applications
LC2+ connectors are available in three versions (standard, high-temperature
andsealed),toprovidecustomerswithdesignflexibility.LC2+metalconnectors
feature an enhanced latch for improved latch retention which is important in
high-shock and vibration environments. Various strain-relief boots are available
to address cable-routing issues. LC2+ connectors are designed to support the
Enhanced Performance (EP) aerospace-grade optical cabling, available from
cable manufacturing vendors.
The standard LC2+ connector is a metal body and latch version of the popular
industry-standard LC connector system and is fully compatible with all LC form
factor connectors, adapters, active devices and tooling. High-temperature
LC2+connectorswillsupportlong-runoperatingtemperaturesupto+150°C
to withstand harsh operating environments that the legacy plastic-body LC
interconnects could not handle. The LC2+ sealed connectors are available with
an internal O-ring that seals to the internal part of an adapter or active device,
along with a special strain-relief boot that seals the rear of the connector and
around the optical cabling to protect against moisture propagation.
LC2+ connectors are the next-generation solution to the highly popular LC
connector interface. The LC2+ interface is found on many active devices
(LED and laser-based) in common equipment applications related to telecom
(i.e. antennas), premise wiring, industrial, military, aerospace and medical
industries.Inaddition,LC2+connectorsmeetallFOCIS10specifications.
