FeedThrough connectors for medical equipment

Cliff Electronics is launching two versions of its very successful FeedThrough connectors aimed at manufacturers of medical diagnostic and treatment equipment. Typical applications include medical devices for diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, treatment or alleviation of disease, clinical and home monitoring products, dental and cosmetic electronic equipment, modems, routers, security and PoE systems.

The new versions of the widely used USB2.0 A-A and CAT5e RG45 data connectors are moulded from white nylon to allow designers to integrate them into equipment where the most commonly available black versions would be out of place and spoil "the look" of the end product. Cliff's FeedThrough connector design allows standard, off the shelf, cables to be used for internal connectivity simplifying assembly.

Cliff's FeedThrough (FT) connectors are designed to be mounted in the industry standard 24mm-diameter XLR panel cut-out. With over 20 different connector types now available in this standard format, panel design and manufacture are greatly simplified. The new white USB2.0 A-A and CAT5e RG45 connectors are available with plain or countersunk mounting holes to facilitate assembly on the front or rear of control panels.

The wide range of FeedThrough connectors now available from Cliff allows designers to integrate audio, video, digital, optical, networking and data feeds into professional equipment for broadcast (studio and mobile), lighting, audio, medical, PoE and industrial applications, instrumentation and control connectivity.

The most popular connectors in Cliff's FeedThrough range are CAT 5e RJ45, CAT 5e Shielded RJ45, CAT 6 RJ45, CAT 6 Shielded RJ45, HDMI Female - Female, USB 3.0 A-A, USB 2.0 B-A and USB 2.0 A-A. All widely used in data and audio-visual applications.

A range of dust covers are now available to protect unused connectors from the ingress of dust. Push-in types in black or white may be used with RJ45 USB-A USB-B USB-C and USB3-B connectors including lanyards and gasket style versions in red, black and blue are suitable for the rest of the connector range.

John Hall, Managing Director of Cliff Electronics says: "There is rapid growth in new technology for medical diagnostic and treatment devices and cosmetic surgery while IT and PoE systems continue to become more sophisticated and require more complex connectivity for the IoT Industry 4.0 and Cloud Computing. The majority of these devices are packaged to fit into workplace or home environments where traditional industrial style connectors would look out of place and reduce the perceived quality and appropriateness of the product. Our flexible UK design and manufacturing means we can respond to changes in our customer's requirements and new markets quickly and cost effectively."
