Molex Unveils FlexiBend™ MPO/MTP Flexible-Boot Cable Assemblies
LISLE, Ill. --(Business Wire)--
Incorporated introduces FlexiBend™
MPO/MTP* flexible-boot cable assemblies designed to optimize cable
routing and support low profile installations where cabinet doors or
front panels might interfere with traditional straight style bend
limiting boots. These optical cables can be used in datacom,
telecommunications, medical, and industrial equipment cabinets and
rack-to-rack applications. The assemblies feature flexible bend limiting
boots which allow cable exits in varying positions from straight to a 90
"Optical cable routing grows increasingly challenging when installing
hundreds of fibers in dense optical patch panels," states Eve Leal,
product manager, Molex (News - Alert). "FlexiBend MPO /MTP flexible-boot cable
assemblies help solve cable routing issues by giving installers the
ability to bend and direct the exiting fiber in any direction within
tight configurations like equipment cabinets and high-density racks."
Molex FlexiBend assemblies are designed with strain-relief boots that
use a flexible and durable steel internal wire which allows an installer
to position the boot in place. The "stay-in-place" boot provides
strain-relief, but can easily be repositioned without disconnection in
order to modify routing requirements while the cable is in service.
Available in 12- and 24-fiber round cable options, FlexiBend is
compatible with any MPO receptacle or active QSFP, CXP and CFP modules.
Singlemode and ultimode cables provide options for transmission link
distances using OM3, OM4, OS1 and OS2 fibers. MPO/MTP FlexiBend boot
cables have been mechanically tested to GR-1435, ISSUE 2 specification
to ensure product performance over 25 bends in various positions.
"Manufacturers and installers of high density hubs, router and server
equipment need the right tools to effectively manage cable routing in
compact spaces. Designed to be bent by hand, the round cable MPO/MTP
FlexiBend boots can be positioned as needed-0, 45, 90 degrees-for easier
installation and maintenance of cable plant," adds Leal.
