High density continuous cables deliver optimum signal transmission for invasive, implantable medical devices

Molex : 27 March, 2013  (New Product)
Molex is introducing its MediSpec high density micro-ribbon cables, which replace individual primary wires and flexible circuits, with ribbonised parallel wires bonded together using fluoropolymer into an organised, dense package for ease-of-routing and electrical length matching.
High density continuous cables deliver optimum signal transmission for invasive, implantable medical devices

Developed at the Molex Temp-Flex facility, each wire is the same length on a tightly controlled pitch to deliver precise electrical performance. The cables are ideal for invasive and implantable medical applications such as catheters, video arthroscopy, glucose monitoring, implantable therapeutics, pain management and minimally invasive imaging such as ultrasound and endoscopy.
 
The compact micro-ribbon cables feature a small pitch (76 micron), tight tolerance (13 micron) and a variety of wire gauges (36 to 50 AWG), which enable multiple, high-density signal channels (up to 13 signals per mm or 169 signals/aq.mm).

Biocompatible materials ensure that the cables are safe for implantable and invasive medical applications. To support a high level of customisation, the conductors are available in several materials, including silver-plated copper, MP35N, precious metals and stainless steel
 
“Because the cables are bonded together in long lengths and available on continuous spools, they are not limited by standard manufacturing capabilities and are an ideal, cost-effective alternative to flexible circuits,” said Anthony Kalaijakis, Medical Strategic Marketing Manager, Molex.
