Hybrid Coupling Combines Fluid, Electronics, Tubing and Cable into One Integrated Connector
Colder Products Company will debut its new hybrid connector to integrate fluidics and electronics into a single connection point at the MD&M East show, June 8-10. The new Hybrid Connector eliminates the need for multiple connections and simplifies the user interface between remote tools and a device. Medical professionals can quickly change or replace modular tools, umbilicals or hand pieces that require power, signal, air or fluids in a wide range of medical device applications.
"Fluid and electrical connections are the key interface for the technician and can be critical to ensure that a device performs safely and effectively," said Jaime Erickson, engineering solutions manager. "Our hybrid technology simplifies these connections for the end user with a single easy-to-use connector."
The hybrid coupling set consists of a panel mount socket and a connector with an umbilical hose containing multiple fluid tubes and contact wires. Featuring dry break valve technology and high-cycle pin and socket electrical contacts, the Hybrid Connector also has an ergonomic twist-to-connect collar.
Hybrid couplings can be easily customized for a wide range of applications that require fluid and electronics including: diagnostic equipment, surgical tools, analytical instrumentation and hospital beds.
Colder Products Company, a world leader in the design and manufacture of quick disconnect couplings, will feature the Hybrid Connector and other new products at MD&M East (Booth #1755) in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. Attendees have the opportunity to meet with Colder experts and discuss coupling and fitting options for fluid handling applications.
