Published: 13 November 2015 - Lisa Peake
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the MediSpec Medical Plastic Circular (MPC) Interconnect System from Molex. This affordable, high-performance interconnect solution combines premium performance and ease-of-use to meet the stringent standards of medical devices. In addition, the MediSpec is also recommended for use in avionics, high-use entertainment equipment, and test and measurement devices.
The Molex MediSpec MPC Interconnect System, available from Mouser Electronics, uses the Molex Low Force Helix (LFH) contact system, which helps ensure a reliable electrical interface over thousands of insertions. MediSpec connectors offer a simple push-pull engagement with optional locking sleeve for ease-of-use.
The connectors use lightweight medical-grade plastic housing on the standard male plug and panel-mount female receptacles, which can withstand medical industry sterilization processes, including autoclave, ethylene oxide (EtO), gamma, and chemical. The 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 to prevent ingress through the pin field during field use.
Available in 17-contact and 7-contact systems, MediSpec connectors feature an operating voltage of 300 VRMS with a current rating of 1.6A (signal contact). MediSpec MPC connectors are built to AAMI-53 specifications and are compatible with the Molex cable assembly portfolio and other connectivity solutions for medical device manufacturers.
