Metal circular connectors are one of the most common and frequently used types of replacement medical connectors. Metal connectors are used to join electrical circuits together in various conductive devices, particularly as medical electrical connectors.
There are hundreds of types of electrical and metal circular connectors. They are used to make both temporary (e.g. portable equipment) and permanent connections. Nearly every industry requires metal electrical connectors for at least some of their functions; we’ve divided out product line into 5 basic categories to make shopping for your business easier.
Metal connectors are most commonly sold under the brand names LEMO® and ODU®. Our eConnekSM brand parts meet the same high standards for quality, at a more affordable price. eConnekSM medical replacement connector parts are fully compatible with any device using LEMO® or ODU® medical electrical connectors.
Mechanically keyed connectors are general-purpose connectors with a wide range of applications; they are used by most industries. They come in multi-contact types with 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 10 contacts for multi-contact electrical uses in the industrial, medical, research and broadcasting sectors.Hermaphroditic Keying
Hermaphroditic (also called concentric) connectors are half-moon metal circular connectors that combine male and female contacts on one connector. Their protected contacts that make them the first choice for many general-purpose applications. Single coaxial and triaxial contact inserts can be blindly inserted in any orientation and rotated into any direction for easy blind-mating.
These multi-contact connectors are most frequently used in industrial, medical, communications and research applications.Harsh Environment
These automotive electrical connectors rely on the strength of a lightweight aluminum alloy to withstand the harsh demands of their vehicles. Their lightweight and compact design features an elastomer gasket environmental seal for the highest level of performance where weight and size are critical.
Originally designed for use in racecar engines, harsh environment automotive wiring connectors are now used for aerospace and military crafts as well. Their aluminum alloy shell and rubber gasket seals provide an IP 67 rating in a multi-contact low voltage configuration connector.
These are environmentally sealed versions of the standard mechanically keyed connectors. The sealed design on these general-purpose connectors is watertight to allow for quick connect/disconnect operations in a wide range of applications and industries.
These multi-contact connectors come in 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 10 contacts for multi-purpose use in industrial, medical, telecommunications and broadcasting settings where water poses a potential hazard.
