SmarTRACK is an intelligent connector system with integrated firmware designed to help prevent misuse of devices. It controls information embedded into a connector, such as product identification, serial number tracking, storage/retrieval of calibration data, and counting or usage timers. It offers an easy method to embed microprocessor intelligence into a connector. The system can be used on any Fischer connector, including the L.U.C. In some cases, a one-time use is the requirement. In other cases, it could be as many as hundreds of uses with autoclaving between uses. Sometimes, multiple third parties may refurbish or sterilize a device for reuse, making the counter even more important to ensure quality and safety. The system comes with a data loading module, a graphical user interface, and an application guide.
