CONEC (Garner, NC) has enhanced its I/O connectors for use in areas with high magnetic fields by replacing the usual steel shells and hardware with tin-plated brass and making the brackets of diecast zinc. The non-magnetic D-Sub I/O connector is suitable for medical imaging systems and other medical applications. The nonmagnetic D-subs are available in standard densities of 9 through 50 positions, in solder cup and PC tail versions. High-density D-subs in the product line include sizes from 15 to 78 positions, also in solder cup and pc tail versions. Combination D-subs are available in 21 standard arrangements. EMI filter connectors are also available with this nonmagnetic capability. Current ratings are from 5 to 40 amps, depending on the base connector chosen.
