LISLE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Molex Incorporated introduced today the MediSpec™ Medical Plastic Circular (MPC) Connector and Cable System featuring the world-class LFH™ (low force helix) contact design for a high-performance and affordable alternative to typical medical circular connectors. The MediSpec MPC system, which will be showcased at MD&M Minneapolis, MN, November 2 – 3, booth 445, provides OEMs, cable assembly manufacturers, contract manufacturers and research/development professionals with a cost-effective, commercial-off-the-shelf product designed for the medical market. Its reliable electrical interface is ideal for applications requiring multiple insertions and its unique contact design keeps forces low for ease of use. The MediSpec MPC system is also designed to be easily handled, even with surgical gloves.

“In today’s healthcare environment, medical equipment manufacturers are being driven to reduce costs while continuing to develop superior products that respond to increasingly complex medical device needs,” said Anthony Kalaijakis, strategic medical market manager, Molex. “The MPC system provides them with a competitively priced option that does not sacrifice the high quality electrical performance needed in a full range of medical equipment applications including portable and digital devices such as catheters, defibrillators and monitors.”

The MPC system offers three standard diameters: small (up to 12 contacts); medium (up to 27 contacts) and large (up to 50 contacts), as well as three keying positions, to address a full range of medical equipment applications. Its medical-grade plastic housing provides a lightweight option that can withstand the required sterilization processes found in the medical industry and color-coded bezels allow for simple mating in multi-port applications, preventing mismatching. The MPC system also features a modular insert design, making it ideal for next-generation medical applications that utilize fiber optics, radio frequency, power, fluidic and air couplings.

MediSpec MPC connectors are built to AAMI-53 specifications and are compatible with the Molex cable assembly portfolio and other connectivity solutions for medical device manufacturers. They are ideal for a range of medical electronic systems including patient monitors, diagnostic equipment and therapeutic devices.
