Designed specifically for medical applications, the MTB1, MDM, MDMA, and D*M/D*MA series connectors operate from -270 to +200C. The connectors employ non-outgassing and non-magnetic materials to eliminate distortion in imaging equipment. Rather than using silver plating material, these connectors are designed with a combination of nickel and gold materials. This construction enables their use over a wider temperature range. In addition, the MDM series micro-D, MDMA series rectangular, and MTB1 series single in-line microminiature connectors feature a twist-pin contact system. This system provides a secure base for the contact. Compared to traditional machined or stamped contacts, the company claims that the connectors offer superior electrical and mechanical characteristics. The twist-pin contacts will mate even under severe misalignment conditions. The D*M and D*MA D-subminiature connectors are offered with coaxial, power, or high-voltage contacts. They are available in standard and high-density layouts. All of the connectors are subjected to a number of tests to ensure they meet zero-defect criteria, further guaranteeing reliability and patient safety. Their ruggedness makes them suitable for medical applications ranging from cryogenic processes to imaging equipment including computeraided- tomography (CAT) scanners and magnetic-resonance-imaging (MRI) and ultrasound machines. The connectors are configured for board-to-board, board-tocable, and cable-to-cable functionality.
