LEMO USA (Rohnert Park, CA) has introduced the REDEL® XP Connector Series, designed using a plastic material that is resistant to sterilization. The latching system is embedded in the shell for increased impact resistance with a high contact density for medical applications, ranging from catheters to surgical instruments. It is available with four different keyways to prevent inadvertent cross connects or misconnects. The outer shell standard color is gray with an option of white or black. Backnuts and receptacle front nuts are available in seven colors for application identification. Contact configurations range from 4 to 22 contacts and can be crimp or solder type. The new design features an ergonomic grip for surgeons and medical staff.
