Cleanable connectors for sterile areas

23 September 2015 Interconnection

Fischer Connectors has launched a new stainless steel range of circular connectors, part of the highly configurable Fischer Core series.

Offer outstanding chemical, temperature and radiation resistance, they have been specially designed for areas where long-term, reliable solutions in extreme environments are required – such as nuclear and energy, medical and food processing applications. They are not only safe, but also easy to clean, completely sterilisable and highly versatile.

The materials used in the connectors are 316L stainless steel, polyether ether ketone (PEEK) and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). These offer the best radiation and ­corrosion resistance, while ensuring consistently high performance even in high temperatures.

Customers can choose the size, body style, plugs and contact block (PCB, solder or crimp contacts, 2 – 15 pins). There are both sealed or unsealed options available, including IP68, and 360° EMC shielding can be added. The connectors can be handled easily with gloves, allowing simple movements for mating, unmating and fully controlling the operations, thanks to their push-pull locking system.
