The SOURIAU's JMX series is a plastic push-pull connector for use in the medical industry, and is designed for easy use by any medical professional. The JMX meets UL 1977 and IEC 60601 standards and connects to surgical devices, diagnostic equipment, and patient monitoring devices. The entire series is available from all SOURIAU distributors in Europe and North America.  

Easy and secure connections 
The JMX series is specifically designed for easy, instinctive use. Each plug features an ergonomic grip and a visual indicator for easy alignment with its receptacle.  

Nine different colour codes and six different key options are available to identify the connectors and prevent mating errors. The series also has a durability of 2,000 mating/unmating cycles, making daily use possible. The series' technical characteristics conform to UL 1977 and IEC 60601 and are designed to simplify medical device approval.   

Waterproof and sterilisable
The JMX series protects equipment from liquids typically found in medical environments (water, blood, cleaning liquids). Rated IP68 in mated and/or unmated conditions, the JMX series protects against immersion in 10m of water for one week. It also withstands autoclave sterilisation and is rated for 200 cycles of four-minutes each at 134°C. 

Carefully designed
SOURIAU's JMX series of plastic push-pull connector is designed to fit onto any medical device. Its bright colours and slender profile blend harmoniously with devices and set it apart from the competition.   

A wide selection of contacts and layouts
The JMX series comes in nine layouts and four different diameters (0.5, 0.7, 0.9, and 1.3mm) to withstand currents and voltages of up to 10A/1200 V. The contacts are available in solder or crimp version and SOURIAU's over moulded harnesses provide customers with permanent one-piece assemblies. The series will be supplemented by a number of additions (PCB versions, additional layouts) that will be rolled out in 2017 and 2018.  

Non-medical applications
Although the JMX series of plastic push-pull connector is designed for medical applications, it lends itself equally well to instrumentation, robotic, and lighting applications. Its ergonomics, small form factor, and ingress protection rating make it a tremendous asset in meeting the needs of these markets.
