Economical circular connectors perform in compact medical applications

31 August 2006

Offering high-reliability compact solutions for medical, instrumentation andindustrial applications, a versatile new range of economical circularconnectors is now available from ACAL Radiatron. Manufactured by Tyco, the range enhances the well-established AMP Micro CPC series and cost-effectively targets applications where size, contact density and durability are prime considerations.

The range offers diverse options for wire-to-wire, wire-to-board and wire-to-panel needs. Offering between
12 and 19 contacts in a high-density housing, a one-piece 13mm diameternylon shell, the connectors deliver space-saving solutions where spaceconstraints need to be reliably addressed. The high pin density allows designers to optimise I/O efficiency.

Higher density, greater reliability and smaller size are hallmarks of the
robust range which offers good resistance to a wide range of chemical agents
and an IP65 rating which ensures protection from the ingress of dust and
fluid splashes.

Two contact systems are available, a spring-probe contact system offers up
to 5000 mating cycles and is seen as ideal for demanding high-cycle medical,
T&M and instrumentation applications. The contacts are screw machined and
provide a redundant current path. Alternatively, a precision screw and
machined pin and socket contact system is available for lower mating cycle
requirements, up to 500 matings, providing reliable cost-effective solutions
for applications such as disposable medical equipment. In both cases the
contacts are gold plated.

Providing easy disconnection while maintaining a positive latch, the
connectors benefit from a convenient squeeze-to-release feature. There is
also an optional breakaway locking feature.

The connectors have a current carrying capacity of 3A at 250VAC. Wire
terminations are solder cup. Operating temperature range is -55C to +105C.
