MXC® Expanded Beam Connectors

The US Conec MXC® connector includes expanded beam PRIZM® MT ferrules and is optimized for direct interface to equipment. It provides a more robust, debris insensitive connection compared to other solutions. It also allows for fiber ribbons to be stacked and can house up to 64 channels, increasing the density of fibers at the card-edge and maximizing space efficiency. Future variants of the platform support a wide variety of configurations including single port or ganged multi-port options for a front panel or backplane application.
