Feb 13, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Molex, along with subsidiaries Affinity Medical Technologies LLC, Temp-Flex LLC and Polymicro Technologies, will showcase ay at MD&M West, through Feb. 14, Anaheim Convention Center, Calif.
"By taking a careful look at the medical device industry, we have identified numerous products that could benefit from our deep knowledge of interconnect solutions," said Anthony Kalaijakis, medical strategic marketing manager, Molex, in a release. "Everything from diagnostic imaging, patient monitoring and healthcare IT applications to minimally invasive and surgically implanted medical devices can be enhanced with the addition of Molex's advanced electronic design solutions."
Products on display:
MediSpec Products (Developed at the Molex Temp-Flex Facility):
-MediSpec Micro Extrusion Primary Wires: Designed to meet tight tolerance requirements for invasive and implantable applications in the medical industry, the primary wires deliver optimal reliability in a range of gauges (36-52 AWG) and a wide selection of materials to support customization.
-MediSpec High-Density Micro-Ribbon Cables: Ideal for invasive and implantable medical applications, the cables reduce costs on invasive and implantable medical equipment by replacing individual primary wires and flexible circuits with ribbonized, parallel wires.
-MediSpec Micro-Miniature Coiling: Designed for device designers in cardiac rhythm management, pacemakers and defibrillators, as well as implantable neurological pain management and stimulation, MMC technology features a continuous length coil enabling extrusion of micro gauge (50-26 AWG class) wire at virtually infinite lengths.
-MediSpec Medical Plastic Circular Connector System: Featuring LFH (low force helix) contact design, the product provides high-performance and affordability.
-MediSpec Molded Interconnect Device/Laser Direct Structuring (MID/LDS) Capabilities: Combines the versatility of the two-shot molding process and the speed and precision of LDS capabilities, helping medical device designers integrate complex electrical and mechanical features into highly compact applications.
-MediSpec Hybrid Circular MT Cable Assemblies and Receptacle System: A dual-platform MT/copper integrated connection solution combines both optical and electrical solutions in one cable assembly, streamlining the number of connectors required in medical equipment and devices. These cables also can be enhanced with Versabeam.
Capacitive Sensing Products
-Molex Capacitive Fluid Level Sensors: The patent pending sensor electrode design and embedded software provide a high-level of accuracy and are ideal for medical fluid management systems. The sensors feature circuitry and can be mounted to any non-metallic container surface with pressure-sensitive adhesive. Molex will be highlighting the capabilities of this sensor with a live demonstration at the show.
-Molex Projected Capacitive Touch Screens: Precise capacitive and resistive touch screen technologies can be customized to meet the needs of a range of applications
