Lisle, IL – Molex has announced that its VersaBeam expanded beam ferrule technology and single-mode silicon photonic active optical products will support the new MXC fiber optic interface. These and other Molex high-speed, high-density data transmission technologies will be featured at booth 3863, OFC 2014 being held March 11-13 in San Francisco.

Supporting up to 64 optical fibers, the MXC plug and panel mount receptacle interface offers reduced component counts, as well as a 15 percent physical density improvement. Planned MXC products will include patch cords, MPO- and LC-to-MXC conversion cables, trunk cables and panel mount receptacles in single- and multi-mode fiber types.

Molex high-speed silicon photonics optical products with MXC plug connectors will support transmission distances of up to 4km using single-mode fiber.  Molex VersaBeam expanded beam MT ferrule technology provides users with ease of use by expanding the optical beam diameter and eliminating fiber-to-fiber contact within the connector. Additionally, VersaBeam ferrule technology greatly reduces fiber damage and cleaning requirements in the field, while improving dust and debris resistance compared to standard fiber interfaces.
