The company’s line of circular plastic connectors (CPC) for medical applications is designed for use in surgical instruments, RF and ultrasound ablation, and electronic patient monitors used in the operating room. The connectors are available in 5, 6, 7, and 10-contact positions and are sterilizable via autoclave, STERRAD 100 S1, CIDEX+ (wipedown only), and EtO. The connector line is a wire-to-panel connector system with housings available in black or gray materials and other accent colors for mating polarization. The connector housings are lightweight, shock-resistant, and feature ergonomic push-pull mating and a robust self-latching mechanism. With a mating force of 2.5 lb and unmating force of 1 lb, the connectors are rugged enough for everyday use while remaining ergonomic enough for the fast-paced environments found in emergency rooms, operating rooms, and clinics. The connectors have a mating cycle rating of up to 2500 cycles.
