In medical technology the dependability of all components is a crucial factor. Sensitive electronic components require reliable encapsulation that can withstand difficult environmental conditions on a long-term basis.
Building on more than 70 years of experience in manufacturing hermetically-sealed housings and feedthroughs, SCHOTT Electronic Packaging offers custom-made, autoclavable connectors for medical equipment that are manufactured with purely inorganic and therefore non-aging materials with glass or ceramic as the insulator.
The use of proven Glass-to-Metal-Sealing or Ceramic-to-Metal Sealing technologies can consistently prevent the permeation of moisture or gases which could cause internal corrosion, degradation of the electronic components and even malfunction of the equipment. Our tightly sealed connectors are thus highly temperature and shock resistant and can reliably withstand the typical steam sterilization conditions in autoclaves. At the same time they provide continuous power supply, or transmission of data from the components.
All of our autoclavable medical connectors and feedthroughs are custom made and can be entirely modified to suit your specific application.
