“Molex developed the non-magnetic versions to support the requirements of the medical imaging marketplace,” said Darren Schauer, product manager, Molex. “In the medical imaging field, interconnects made with ferrous materials can create interference problems that degrade image quality.”
The RF non-magnetic contacts and modules are designed to align with the connector types and performance requirements of major MRI equipment manufacturers.
Molex products include:
· MMCX Single Plug & Receptacle
· MMCX Module of 6 PCB Plugs & Receptacles
· SSMCX Module of 8 PCB Plugs & Right Angle Receptacles
· SSMCX Module of 8 for RG178 cable
· Cable Assemblies for the series
In addition, most other Molex standard configuration RF contacts and modules are available in non-magnetic (i.e., non-ferrous) versions by special order, as are custom configurations and cable assemblies. Standard products from stock ship in 8 weeks, depending on quantity and configuration. Custom configurations typically require 8 to 12 weeks to ship.
