Esterline Connection Technologies – Souriau presented its all-new series of JMX plastic medical connectors at its stand at Compamed 2017, which was held in Düsseldorf from 13–16 November 2017. Compamed brings together suppliers of hospital and electronic equipment designed for medical devices used in patient environments. Medica is dedicated to surgical and patient care equipment. Together, both trade shows make up the world’s largest annual medical technology event.
For its first time as an exhibitor at Compamed, Souriau chose to put the spotlight on its ranges of push-pull connectors for medical applications. The company already offers JDX and JBX metal versions, which are suited to applications that require shielding integrity. Its new JMX plastic series, however, got many attendees buzzing about its special design, which marks a change from your typical medical connector. But the connector’s design was not the only thing that drew attendee’s attention. They were also impressed to find out that the JMX plastic series is water-resistant (IP68 or IP50), sterilizable, ergonomic, biocompatible, and has a large number of mating cycles.
Visitors to Souriau’s stand also learned about or refamiliarized themselves with the company’s other products, such as Trim-Trio, a range which offers a wide variety of circular and rectangular connectors made of plastic, metal, and metal-plastic bi-material.
The JMX is already used on new operating-room monitoring systems and mobile dialysis machines manufactured in the U.S.A. and that it will be included on forthcoming defibrillators and EKG equipment.
