Features & Benefits
The D Series delivers industry-leading performance featuring simple push-button latching and a "D" shaped flange which makes mating orientation obvious. There are three D Series sizes that accommodate a wide variety of applications. The D01 plug is available with up to nine Hypertac® hyperboloid contacts in less than 0.5" diameter, while the slightly larger D02 offers more extensive options, from three power to 25 signal contacts, or a mixture of power or coax and signal contacts. In addition, the mini D00 connector includes five signal contacts in a format nearly 30% smaller than the D01. The D Series provides medical equipment designers with reliable connections for applications as diverse as electro-physiology catheters, patient monitors, MRIs, intravascular ultrasounds, defibrillators, infusion pumps and laboratory equipment.
Autoclavable: Options for the D Series include high temperature versions molded in Ultem® (polyetherimide) plastic*, which have been shown to withstand 20 autoclave cycles while maintaining the high reliability needed for critical medical applications which require sterilization (see “Autoclavable D series” white paper).
D Series connectors are also used in a variety of industrial, rail and commercial applications where reliability is critical. Cable assemblies are also offered, incorporating the D Series with overmolding, integrated electronics, metal shells for increased strength, or alternate contact configurations to meet specific customer requirements.
