Consistent performance and a high degree of failure protection are of vital importance in medical technology. As an interface specialist, we develop and produce custom systems and standard solutions for your medical applications. From MRI equipment to endoscopy, we design all our connectors in compliance with the strictest regulations and applicable standards.
With the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) coming into force, the requirements for manufacturers and distributors of medical devices are changing. It is the logical response to the increased number of risk reports on medical devices in the EU in recent years. This new regulation is intended to close the gaps in the previously valid directive on medical devices and thus increase and ensure patient and user safety.
For more information, see the slider. We are happy to support you with the requirements of the MDR.
Every new product must permanently deliver high performance and ensure the highest dimension of safety. With outstanding contact resistance over more than 100,000 mating cycles, we ensure the reliable transmission of signals, power, high current, high voltage, RF signals (coax), medical gases and liquids, as well as data and fiber‐optic signals.
Decades of experience in the medical industry combined with state‐of‐the‐art technology ensure we can develop your connectors to perfection. Whether in diagnostics, therapy, hybrid operating rooms or patient monitoring – our products stand for consistent failure protection and reliability in everyday medical applications. We manufacture high‐quality products in accordance with:
Our connectors, cables, and housings are characterized by extreme temperature and chemical resistance – and guarantee reliable tightness, including in compliance with high protection classes.
Sterilizable and disinfectable
Autoclavable at up to 134 °C and 3 bar
Easy cleaning of all surfaces
