LISLE, Ill.--Molex will feature its new line of multi-port EMI adapters with internal laser protection shutters in Molex booth 3218 at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Exposition, to be held March 21-23, 2017, at the Los Angeles (CA) Convention Center. The versatile adapters can support a variety of connector types including MXC, MTP/MPO, MT, and HBMT. The optical EMI shielding adapters are ideal for data communications and networking applications that require I/O density, EMI containment, streamlined behind-panel fiber routing and eye protection.
“As data rates increase to 25 Gbps, 50 Gbps and beyond, EMI containment becomes a concern for designers,” said Josh Krantz, global product manager, Molex. “High-Density EMI adapters from Molex provide an improved EMI shielding effectiveness benefit when compared to traditional plastic adapters, as validated through an extensive testing regimen. The multi-port options also ease space constraints on the panel and increase the number of ports on the line card.”
The adapters feature metal housings with an EMI gasket that seals them to the panel, increasing shielding effectiveness and enhancing front-panel aesthetics compared to traditional plastic adaptors. The internal laser protection shutters allows for easy insertion and removal of the connector while providing reliable eye safety. A complete line of industry standard MTP/MPO and MXC cable assemblies are available, as well as customized FlexPlane and Routed Ribbon solutions to meet each customer’s unique cable management needs.
