Non-magnetic D-subminiature connectors well-suited for medical imaging apps

CONEC, a manufacturer of high-quality connectors, has developed a series of non-magnetic combination D-subminiature connectors for advanced medical imaging equipment. These combination D-subminiature connectors exhibit a low relative magnetism because they replace the major conventional magnetic components that could interfere with the magnetic flux of medical imaging systems, such MRI machines. Comprised of copper alloy shells, tin-plated brass hardware components like screws or threaded rivets, and diecast zinc brackets, the non-magnetic combination D-sub connectors can include signal, high power or coaxial contacts. The advanced non-magnetic combination D-subminiature connectors are available in 21 standard pin configurations, as well as in custom arrangements. "Connectors used in medical equipment, particularly MRI, CAT and other diagnostic applications, need to combine small size and light weight characteristics with high performance and ruggedness to deliver effective solutions," said Peter Persico, Technical Support Specialist at CONEC. "Our non-magnetic combination D-sub connectors provide high-signal density, while offering significant space savings." Available with 4-40 UNC or M3 threaded inserts, the non-magnetic combination D-subminiature connectors feature power rating from 10A to 40A and a temperature range of -40°C to +105°C. The coax contacts are available in 50 or 75 Ohm versions. The combination D-subminiature connectors are both RoHS and REACH compliant. Available in a variety of configurations including shell sizes one through five, the combination D-subminiature connectors start at $8.00 in OEM quantities, with a lead-time of stock to four weeks.
