Smiths Interconnect announced today the addition of a new disposable option to its renowned Hypergrip® connector series for the medical market segment.

Medical disposables are essential products in the field of healthcare and the demand for single-use devices (including endoscopes, catheters and patient monitoring systems) has increased significantly even before the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure patient-specific care while reducing the risk of infection/contamination. To meet the market demand, Smiths Interconnect has developed a new disposable connector to complement its Hypergrip® Series of patented and proven high-reliability circular connectors specifically designed for medical applications.

The new disposable connector plug leverages the versatility of the Hypergrip® Series to deliver a reliable interconnect solution for single or few uses, ideal for applications that don’t require high cycle life but still require a premium disposable connector mated with a high cycle receptacle. Available in 2 sizes of 12 and 33 contact positions, the new plugs maintain the premium look-and-feel, reliability, compliance with medical industry standards, and ease of use of the standard HyperGrip® connectors and are designed to support overmoulding and high volume production. They offer the proven electrical performance of the standard plugs in terms of insulation resistance, Dielectric Withstand Voltage, Current Carrying, Low Level Current Resistance, and at least IPX4 with potting or overmolding.
