Medical Connectors- The Ultimate FAQ Guide

Various medical instruments and machinery like ventilators, surgical robots, etc., require the high-level transmission of data, current and signals from one place to another.

Any mistake in the test and measurements can cause severe problems for the patients.

So, every doctor and medical staff require an efficient device that easily and quickly connects with the medical instrument’s cables and transfer data precisely.

INTE-AUTO has solved the problem of efficient transmission.

They have manufactured efficient and reliable Medical Connectors that have abilities to fulfill all your medical requirements.

The below FAQ guide will give you complete information on INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors.

1. What are INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors?

The INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors are small connectors that quickly connect the medical instrument cables and transfer data, current and signals in an efficient manner.

They are made with excellent quality plastic and consist of two main parts named plug and receptacle.

You can quickly connect the plug with the cable from where you want to transfer data, current or signals, and the receptacle is associated with the device.

The connector’s plug is pushed into the receptacle to start the transmission process.

INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors follow a super-strong self-latching mechanism for locking and unlocking.

These connectors have thousands of applications in different medical fields.

2. What is Autoclave and Do INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors are Autoclavable?

An autoclave is a machine that is used to carry out the autoclaving process.

The process involves the sterilization of the different medical instruments to kill germs and bacteria.

An excess amount of steam is provided to the instruments by using water, pressure and heat that combines to complete the sterilization process.

The INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors are autoclavable, which means that you can sterilize them and make them clean for your next use.

3. What is the Medical Connector’s IP rating?

The INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors are safe to use and provide you with excellent results for dustproof.

They are manufactured using top-quality materials and give you IP50 ratings.

The excellent ingress protection ratings ensure you excellent protection against dust.

4. Can You Blind Mate the INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors?

Yes, the INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors can be easily blind mated.

INTE-AUTO has made an excellent keying system (protrudes) on their medical connectors so that they can be quickly blind mated.

The keying system has given code names such as G, A, B, C, H, or J.

Each keying code is assigned an angle so that only the same code connectors can be associated with each other.

The G key is a standard key with a zero-degree angle from the center of the connector, i.e., it has only one protrude that should be aligned before mating.

The angle assigned to other keying codes are:

  • 40 degrees for key code A.
  • 60 degrees for key code B.
  • 80 degree for key code C.
  • 170 degree for key code H.
  • 155 degree for key code J.

INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors are also color-coded to quickly and easily blind mate them.

9. How can You Assemble and Disassemble the INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors?

The INTE-AUTO Medical Connectors can be easily assembled and disassembled.

Assembling:

  • First, you have to make a cut of about 4 inches to 0.5 inches on the outer rubber layer of the cable to expose the small wires inside it.
  • The conducting material is then exposed by cutting the external layer of small wires.
  • Now you have to pass the cable first inside a bend relief and collet nut and then from the collet.
  • At this stage, you have to solder the conducting material of small wires with the contacts of the connector’s insulator.
  • Now you have to put the collet on the insulator so that the lug of the collet precisely mounts on the slot of the insulator.
  • After this, you should first align the collet and insulator and carefully insert them into the housing of the connector.
  • Now screw the collet nut on the back of the collet and attach bend relief at this stage.
  • The receptacle should be soldered with the device or instrument where the data, signals or current need to be transferred.

Disassembling:

  • In order to disassemble the connector’s plug, you have to remove bend relief and then un-tighten the collet nut using your hands or a spanner.
  • Now take out the insulator and collet from the outer shell of the plug.
  • Remove collet and then unsolder the small wires from the insulator contacts.
  • Again, assemble the components of the plug without using the cable.
  • The plug is then completely disassembled.
