Push-Pul connector.

The ODU push-pull circular connector portfolio, ODU MINI-SNAP® , with a robust metal housing, a large number of configuration options and up to 500 autoclavable cycles has undergone a further product expansion.

The portfolio now includes additional inserts that have been specially designed to fulfill the user and patient protection levels required by IEC 60601-1 (2 MOOP / 2 MOPP) . These connectors now become the solution of choice when searching for a circular connector with a metal housing for medical applications.

The approval procedures for medical electrical equipment and systems have become even more complex than they already were prior to the release of the latest version of the IEC 60601-1. If ODU is involved in the design-in process from the start then not only is the risk management process simplified, but also the cost of product development for such manufacturers can be reduced to a minimum. At the end of the day, the necessary time for approval procedures can be substantially shortened if components from suppliers are already fully compliant with the IEC 60601-1. This is the case with this standard portfolio extension from ODU.

The main advantages of choosing a connector with a metal housing for fulfillment of the requirements defined under IEC 60601-1 (2 MOOP / 2 MOPP) are the advanced electromagnetic shielding capabilities and the mechanical strength of the connector. These features ensure safe operation and the best possible signal quality in the most demanding of medical environments.

The new inserts are available in 3 sizes and offer a choice of contacts as follows (further contact variants available on request):

  • Size 1: 7 crimp contacts, ∅ 0.7 mm, nominal voltage 36V AC or DC
  • Size 2: 12 crimp contacts, ∅ 0.7 mm, nominal voltage 48V AC or DC
  • Size 3: 16 crimp contacts, ∅ 0.7 mm, nominal voltage 48V AC or DC

The inserts are suitable for deployment in the ODU MINI-SNAP ® L- & K-Series of connectors. Reverse gendering options are also available. The above-mentioned voltage ratings are valid for pollution grade 2 (IEC 60601-1). The nominal current rating is specified with 7A.

Customer specific cable assemblies with or without silicone overmolding are also available upon request.

These products, together with the successful ODU MEDI-SNAP ® portfolio, further strengthen ODU's position in serving the medical electrical equipment industry with IEC 60601-1 compliant solutions.
