Our highly-customized Multiconductor Cables utilize a wide range of conductor, shielding, and insulation materials, chosen to suit your specific medical device application requirements. Typical characteristics of our custom multi-conductor medical cables include: finely stranded conductors for ultimate flexibility, extended flex-life and resistance to fatigue, miniaturization, high or low temperature performance, low triboelectric noise and signal integrity.
Custom Design Options:
- Miniature Cable
- Miniature cable conductors as small as 46 AWG integrated to create high performance miniature cables for ultrasound probes and other applications requiring minimum overall diameter.
- Ultraflexible Cables
The combination of finely stranded conductor and thin-wall extrusions results in medical cables with extreme flexibility. Our ultra-fine copper and copper-alloy conductor materials are used extensively in medical device applications such as patient monitoring and electro-surgical devices. Ultra-flexible cables are ideally suited to your hand-held surgical instrument requiring unrestricted motion.
- Extended Flexlife Cables
High-strength alloys, in both stranded and tinsel conductor configurations, combined with abrasion resistant plastic insulators result in cable products with superior flexlife characteristics. Extended flexlife cables are typically specified for applications where high reliability in repeated motion operations is required. Surgical robotics and reusable medical surgical devices are two such applications.
- Low-noise Cables:
Our low-noise cables utilize constructions and materials that help reduce or eliminate internal noise generation, and are designed to meet exacting specifications for a wide range of applications including EEG, EKG, pacemaker and oximetry.
- Sterilization Compatibility:
Our extruded insulation options include a variety of materials, chosen based on your particular medical device requirements. Whether your device will be subjected to Autoclave (steam sterilization), gamma, Steris*, Sterradή** or ETO, our design team can recommend suitable insulation compounds providing high-temperature protection up to 250C. Generally recommended insulations include: FEP, PFA, ETFE and silicone rubber.
