Intelliconnect (Europe) offers a wide range of connectors suitable for diagnostic, treatment and wearable medical device technologies, including connectors for RF cancer treatment, radiation dosimeters and detectors, bio-medical test equipment and bionics.
An additional range includes micro-miniature waterproof coaxial connectors for cochlear ear implants. This very demanding application requires a rugged and reliable quick-disconnect waterproof connector capable of making several thousand disconnects during its product lifetime. The Intelliconnect design meets IP68, is comfortable to wear close to the skin and may be used in normal domestic environments including swimming pools, showers, baths and high humidity environments such as saunas, steam rooms etc.
“Increasing use of wearable medical electronics such as cochlear ear implants and monitoring equipment and the growth of RF treatments continues to provide new design-in opportunities. Our wide range of standard products and ability to produce custom connectors cost effectively and quickly, typically in just seven weeks from confirmation of design, ensures our customers can a get no-compromise connector solution at a very competitive price,” said Roy Phillips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect.
Standard products available from Intelliconnect suitable for medical applications include the TRB and TRT triaxial connector series designed primarily to reduce noise levels in systems while providing an isolated ground. The TRB series has a bayonet locking mechanism as designed on the BNC series while the TRT series has a 7/16-28 thread coupling mechanism as designed on the TNC series. Both the TRB and TRT series are non-constant impedance and incorporate a third conductor. These two products feature a state-of-the-art clamping construction and weatherproof sealing features which ensure excellent termination to various twinaxial and triaxial cables.
Al Intelliconnect RF connectors are designed in accordance with US MIL-STD-348 and US MIL-PRF and have an operating temperature range of -65°C to +165°C and the ABMS series is waterproof to IP67/68.
