Hybrid Connector Integrates Fluidics and Electronics
Colder Products Company introduces a hybrid connector to integrate fluidics and electronics into a single connection point and reduce tangles of wire and tubing on devices. It also eliminates the need for multiple connections and simplifies the user interface between remote tools and the device. Technicians can quickly change or replace modular tools, umbilicals, or hand pieces that require power, signal, air, or fluids. The hybrid coupling set consists of a panel mount socket and a connector with an umbilical hose containing fluid tubes and contact wires. Featuring dual shutoff valves and high-cycle pin and socket electrical contacts.
