Reliable interface in medical devices

Binder’s Easy Locking Connector (ELC) is recommended for sensitive homecare applications. Designed to be robust and biocompatible, it meets the requirements for electromechanical connectivity in medical devices.

Features include snap-in locking and an asymmetric hexagon mating area which aids safe operation and long service life. Biocompatible, non-irritant to skin and resistant to disinfectants, it suits the patient environment. The shock-proof and vibration-resistant ELC is available in four, eight and 12-pole versions rated at 2A and 250/150V, respectively.

The ELC is designed for over 5,000 mating cycles. Mating is intuitive and blind mating is possible by non-professionals. Alignment of the plug to socket is predetermined by the asymmetric hexagon mating area. Snap-in hooks ensure simple, effective locking. The latter is easy for the operator to recognize by the snapped-in hooks.

IP54 protects against contact, dust and splash water from all directions. The female panel mount connector protects against splashed water/liquids and accidental electrical contact, even when disconnected.
