New circular connectors: Producing medical devices faster and affordably
Interplex’ new Sureline series will mean that OEMs no longer have to engage with suppliers to create a custom connector/cable assembly for their latest equipment models. Instead, they will have access to ready-to-use overmolded products that are far more cost-effective and convenient to implement.
According to the company, the specially developed ergonomic outer profile of the plug element ensures that the user naturally brings it into the correct orientation when mating. This is said not only to speed up mating, but also to reduce wear and tear, thus increasing the product's service life.
Among the core applications will be surgical equipment, medical imaging systems, diagnostic instrumentation, respiratory equipment, and patient monitoring units.
