Infinite Electronics brand ShowMeCables (Irvine, CA) has launched two new series of multi-fiber push on (MPO) cables that include both conversion and patch cable styles.

The connectivity supplier says its new MPO conversion cables can be used in applications such as link aggregation, data communications, mobility/wireless infrastructure, military/aerospace, and harsh environments, while its MPO patch cables are designed for saving both installation time and valuable rack space in high-density applications.

ShowMeCables’ new line of MPO conversion cables consists of 144 models available off-the-shelf for providing fast, high-performance connectivity in backbone networks, and link aggregation in data centers, while allowing for uniform trunk cabling from racks where all 12 fibers can be utilized. Features include riser or low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) jackets and Type-A or Type-B polarities. Cables are available in OM3, OM4 and OM5 versions, with or without male or female alignment pins, and in multiple lengths. Conversion options include 1 x MPO24 to 2 x MPO12, 1 x MPO24 to 3 x MPO8, and 3 x MPO8 to 2 x MPO12.

For its part, ShowMeCables’ new series of MPO patch cables includes 204 models that are in-stock and ready to ship. Patch cables are available with 8, 12 and 24 fiber counts and in OM3, OM4 and OM5 fiber types. Additional features include Type-A or Type-B polarities and riser or LSZH jacket options. These cables are offered in multiple lengths, and with or without male or female alignment pins.

“Speed means everything in today’s world as data centers are rapidly evolving to higher densities and higher data rates. With a wide variety of products and configurations, our MPO cables are the best option to future-proof and improve the speed, agility and performance of fiber-optic systems,” said Paul Hospodar, product line manager for ShowMeCables.
