More flexibility thanks to three new receptacle styles for the ODU MEDI-SNAP®

01 November 2018

Top patient protection – Maximum efficiency – High robustness

In order to meet the increasing call for improved patient protection according to the IEC 60601-1 as well as the ever-growing cost pressure and demand for high robustness, the ODU MEDI-SNAP® portfolio has been extended to include three new styles of receptacle.

The IEC 60601-1 medical standard requires the highest level of protection from electric shock of devices and their interfaces to provide patients and users with the greatest possible safety. Due to increased clearance and creepage distances the highest standards of the IEC 60601-1 can be fulfilled (2 MOPP / 2 MOOP).

Resulting from the specific optimization of components while maintaining top-notch quality is an outstanding economical solution.

Further the new GA receptacle type also stands out due to its robust design. An additional sealing system has been designed to meet the IP68 standard even in unmated condition providing ingress protection from water and dust which pass a consistant challenge in demanding industrial and medical applications.
