Bi-Lobe Connector Protected Against Contamination in Medical Applications

Thu, 04/02/2009 - 5:33am

The latching Bi-lobe connector can be offered with overmolded cables, or incorporated into equipment housings. For medical applications, this offers several benefits including protection against contamination and easy sterilization, as well as significant savings in space, weight, and cost. The 0.025 in. pitch connector is unique in that the mechanism provides very high levels of mating security—devices pass the shock and vibration requirements of MIL-DTL-32139—yet connector halves simply push together, requiring no tools or complicated procedures. Unlike other suppliers who require large production orders to undertake customized over-molding, the company can offer a precision over-molding service for the latching Bi-lobe and many other miniature connector families even for small order quantities. A wide range of materials—from soft silicones to hard glossy shells—can be used.
