New ultra-sterile Fischer Stainless Steel connectors can be relied on in hospitals and labs
St-Prex, Switzerland, 25 June 2015 – Fischer Connectors, a worldwide leader in push-pull circular connectors and cable assembly solutions, has announced the launch of its new Stainless Steel range of circular connectors, part of the highly configurable Fischer Core Series.
The new connectors are made of premium-grade stainless steel – the best on the market. They are not only safe, but also easy to clean, completely sterilizable and highly versatile.
The materials used in the Fischer Core Series Stainless Steel connectors are 316L stainless steel, polyether ether ketone (PEEK), and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). The connectors enable microbiological sterilization (autoclave, ethylene oxide (EtO), gamma radiation, Steris® or Sterrad®, Cidex).
In some fields of medicine, sterilization needs to be combined with radioactive decontamination. Combining sterilization and decontamination makes the connectors re-usable, lowering the total cost of ownership.
“In a medical environment cleanliness is essential, and reliable, fully sterilizable connections are vital to ensuring human protection. Our experienced design teams can build the right product just for you”, says Jacques Miéville, Product Manager at Fischer Connectors.
Clients can choose the size, body style, plugs and contact block (PCB, solder or crimp contacts, 2-15 pins). The connectors can be handled easily with gloves, allowing simple movements for mating, unmating and fully controlling the operations, thanks to the patented industry standard push-pull locking system.
Fischer Connectors complies with the relevant international norms to ensure quality, safety and environmental friendliness of its connectors, processes and systems (including ISO 9001, ISO 134 85, ISO 14001, ROHS and REACH).
