Santa Ana, Calif. ITT Electronic Components offers a product brochure that details the company's connector, switch and interface products for medical equipment. These products are designed to meet or exceed crosstalk, RFI/EMI, capacitance/impedance and IEC safety requirements for these applications.
Several interconnects covered in the brochure include ITT's custom breakaway connectors and Cannon DLP connectors used by imaging equipment manufacturers. The breakaway connectors virtually eliminate disconnect times while preventing damage to equipment, which can be critical in emergency situations, said the company. The DLP zero-insertion force connector is capable of transmitting enormous amounts of data with minimal crosstalk. The company has also supplied parts for the latest generation of ultrasound equipment.
The brochure also highlights standard products including D-subminiature connectors and switches and custom parts such as cable assemblies and control panels. Many of these products have been developed in conjunction with application developers and healthcare professionals to address the specific requirements of imaging systems, self-care equipment, patient monitoring, dental equipment and other medical applications, said the company.
ITT also provides custom engineering capabilities for power-switching components, joysticks, and screen-printed control panels, as well as turnkey design and manufacture of PC-boards. Materials are selected to meet autoclave or other requirements with respect to temperature cycling, vibration and sealing.
