Stroke Spring-Loaded Pins and Connectors
The 0914 series has a mid-stroke distance of 0.045” (1.14mm) [0.09”
( 2.29mm) full stroke] – close to double most standard series products. This
provides more flexibility and tolerance for assembly. These new, taller versions
can be useful for assemblies requiring greater distance between mating surfaces and contact points. The longer stroke provides great benefit in compensating for tolerance stack-ups, and combined with the increased height, makes
them an excellent solution for elevated board stacking applications. The 0914
series spring pins have solder tails for through-hole mounting, providing the
support necessary for taller components to maintain a secure connection to
the PC board.

The REDEL SP connector is designed using a plastic material that is friendly
to sterilization processes. The latching system is now embedded in the shell
for an increased impact resistance with a high contact density, making this
an ideal solution for medical or measurement applications, from catheters to
surgical instruments. Configurations range from four to 22 contacts. A variety of
colors and an ergonomic grip to make it simple for surgeons and medical staff
to mate and align the connection. LEMO is now ISO 13485 Certified to better
assist medical device customers.

IP (Ingress Protection) rating is the most common system for evaluating how
“waterproof” your connector is. IP rating is categorized by two digit numbers.
The first digit represents the protection rating against solid foreign objects such
as dusts. The second digit represents the protection against the ingress of
liquids. Mencom offers a wide selection of waterproof connectors from IP44
and IP68 connectors. Typical IP ratings for waterproof connectors in the manufacturing industry are IP67 and IP65. IP67 waterproof connectors provide
complete protection against dust and ingress of water when immersed in one
meter of water for 30 minutes. IP65 waterproof connectors provide complete
protection against dust and protection of water jets from all directions.

Ultra-Sterile Stainless Steel Connector
Fischer Core Series Stainless Steel connectors are made of premium-grade
stainless steel. They offer chemical, temperature, and radiation resistance.
They are not only safe, but also easy to clean, completely sterilizable, and
highly versatile. The materials used in these connectors are 316L stainless
steel, polyether ether ketone (PEEK), and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). These offer radiation and corrosion resistance, while ensuring
consistently high performance even in high temperatures. The connectors
enable microbiological sterilization (autoclave, ethylene oxide, gamma radiation, Steris or Sterrad, and Cidex). Clients can choose the size, body style,
plugs, and contact block (PCB, solder or crimp contacts, 2-15 pins).
