Molex Incorporated Key Developments

Molex Incorporated Introduces MediSpec Medical Plastic Circular Interconnect System

Molex Incorporated introduced the MediSpec Medical Plastic Circular Interconnect System, an economical custom-off-the-shelf interconnect that delivers high-mating cycles and low-mating forces, at a fraction of the cost of competing machined-contact systems, at MD&M West, February 10 - 12, Anaheim, CA, Booth 1746. Combining premium performance and ease-of-use, MediSpec MPC interconnects incorporate proven cost-effective technology to meet the stringent standards of medical-device users. The MPC system employs the proven LFH stamped-and-formed contact system, which helps ensure a reliable electrical interface for applications requiring multiple insertions. This cost efficient system achieves low insertion and withdrawal forces with a 10,000-cycle durability rating. The simple, push-pull engagement mechanism provides ease-of-use – even with surgical gloves. An optional locking sleeve is also available to ensure the cable’s un-mating force complies with ANSI /AAMI-EC53 specification (>90N); without the locking sleeve, the cable achieves between 15 and 20N un-mating force. The contact interface (pin field) for both the plugs and receptacles are factory-sealed to prevent ingress of flux into the contact zone during wire termination processes, as well as prevent ingress through the pin field during field use. Four diameters are in development to address a full range of medical equipment applications for the OEM: D1 (up to 8 contacts), D2 (up to 17 contacts), D3 (up to 35 contacts) and D4 (up to 59 contacts) plus four keying positions and six colors. Molex offers a selective pin-count capability with each diameter interface to enable contact-usage flexibility without wasted pins. An additional IP64-rated sealing option is available to provide protection to a splash-proof specification.

Molex Launches New Product Family of MediSpec RF Contacts and Modules

Molex Incorporated has launched a new product family of MediSpec non-magnetic radio frequency, or RF, contacts and modules as an extension to its existing line of RF/microwave interconnect solutions. Molex developed the non-magnetic versions to support the requirements of the medical imaging marketplace. In the medical imaging field, interconnects made with ferrous materials can create interference problems that degrade image quality. Affordable, high performing, non-ferrous versions actually enhance image quality and granularity, rendering scans and images more readable and accurate. This provides significant value for manufacturers of MRI and other types of diagnostic imaging equipment. The new RF non-magnetic contacts and modules are designed to align with the connector types and performance requirements of major MRI equipment manufacturers - and are offered at a more affordable price point than non-magnetic versions currently offered by boutique vendors. Molex innovative product offerings designed to address the needs of medical device manufacturers include: MMCX Single Plug & Receptacle; MMCX Module of 6 PCB Plugs & Receptacles; SSMCX Module of 8 PCB Plugs & Right Angle Receptacles; SSMCX Module of 8 for RG178 cable; and Cable Assemblies for the series. In addition, most other Molex standard configuration RF contacts and modules are available in non-magnetic (i.e., non-ferrous) versions by special order, as are custom configurations and cable assemblies. Standard products from stock ship in 8 weeks, depending on quantity and configuration. Custom configurations typically require 8 to 12 weeks to ship.
