In the medical device industry, absolute reliability of medical connectors is of paramount importance. In operating rooms and for life-support machines as well as in medical practices and for mobile applications, fail-safe functioning and permanent availability of medical technology systems are crucial. Especially the electrical connections are vital for safe operation in healthcare. Modern operating rooms with mobile medical device trolleys, modular equipment, and a trend towards outpatient treatment at home, require connections that are easy to handle and secure to connect, even by non-experts.
For more than 60 years, Stäubli has been producing connectors based on the MULTILAM contact element technology, which is characterized by high levels of reliability and efficiency and low contact resistance. Connectors with MULTILAM enable maintenance-free operation, even with high numbers of connection cycles. Touch-protected connections and sterilizable insulation materials are used to meet the special requirements of medical technology.
A wide range of different products, using modular single- and multi-pole connector systems and contact elements based on plug-in systems, opens up a variety of possibilities. However, if no standard product meets the needs, Stäubli works together with the customer to develop tailored solutions for specific applications, from design through to finished product.
Stäubli produces customer-specific assembled connectors and components for medical technology. The finished components are fully tested on an automated test bench and delivered as a fully-tested assembly.
