Challenging environmental conditions and high reliability requirements create the need for can’t fail connectors. This article explores some of the more critical design factors that go into designing a new connector for the medical market.
The medical industry requires connectors to reliably operate in a variety of harsh environments. This drives the connector design to be custom, specifically addressing each application’s unique challenges. There are many attributes that must be considered when laying out a connector’s specifications, but they typically fall into 1 of 3 categories: material selection, mechanical properties and electrical specifications. All 3 categories must be considered concurrently to yield a successful connector design. Read more
