Mouser Electronics Inc. has revealed that is now stocking the MediSpec Medical Plastic Circular (MPC) Interconnect System from Molex, which is offered by the company as a cost-effective, high-performance interconnect solution aimed at medical devices. The MediSpec is also recommended for avionics, high-use entertainment equipment, and test and measurement devices.

MediSpec Medical Plastic Circular Interconnect System

The Molex MediSpec MPC Interconnect System uses the Molex Low Force Helix (LFH) contact system that helps ensure a reliable electrical interface over thousands of insertions. MediSpec connectors offer a simple push-pull engagement with optional locking sleeve for ease-of-use. The connectors use lightweight medical-grade plastic housing on the standard male plug and panel-mount female receptacles, which can withstand medical industry sterilisation processes, including autoclave, ethylene oxide (EtO), gamma and chemical. The pin field for both the plugs and receptacles are factory-sealed to prevent ingress of flux into the contact zone during wire termination processes, as well as to prevent ingress through the pin field during field use.

Available in 17-contact and 7-contact systems, MediSpec connectors feature an operating voltage of 300VRMS with a current rating of 1.6A (signal contact). MediSpec MPC connectors are built to AAMI-53 specifications and are compatible with the Molex cable assembly portfolio and other connectivity solutions for medical device manufacturers.
