Medical connector range added

RS Components has added MediSpec MPC – medical plastic circular – cable and panel mount plug connectors to its range. The connectors are suited to medical applications ranging from dental and disposable devices to surgical equipment and telehealth systems. The connectors can also be used in other applications, including instrumentation test and measurement and data acquisition.

MediSpec circular connectors have lightweight plastic housings made from medical grade PPSU, which can withstand tahe sterilisation processes commonly used in the medical industry. Available in two diameters, the D1 specification accepts up to eight circuits, while the D2 accepts up to 17 circuits. The plastic plugs feature a push-pull mating mechanism with a locking sleeve for secure mating.

Stamped and formed contacts offer a reliable electrical interface, good electrical performance, low contact resistance and the ability to withstand 10,000 mating cycles. Singleuse disposable versions with polycarbonate housings are also available.
