Omnetics has announced that its unique, latching Bi-lobe connector can now be offered with overmolded cables, or incorporated into equipment housings. For medical applications this offers several benefits including protection against contamination and easy sterilization, as well as significant savings in space, weight and cost.
Omnetics’ 0.025in pitch latching Bi-lobe connector is unique in that the mechanism provides very high levels of mating security - devices pass the shock and vibration requirements of MIL-DTL-32139 – yet connector halves simply push together requiring no tools or complicated procedures. Unlike other suppliers who require large production orders to undertake customized over-molding, Omnetics can offer a precision over-molding service for the latching Bi-lobe and many other miniature connector families even for small order quantities. A wide range of materials - from soft silicones to hard glossy shells - can be used.
Comments Gary Evans, European Sales Manager: “We pride ourselves on being a connector company that listens to the customer. People have told us they want a miniature, secure, easy-to-mate connector system. They have asked for connectors to be overmolded with cables or into equipment fixtures. By coupling our latching Bi-lobes with our overmolding service, we are delivering everything they need.”
