CONNECTOR, SWITCH AND RELAY ALLOYS FOR MEDICAL DEVICES

Materion’s high performance copper beryllium alloys provide reliable components for connectors, switches and relays in critical medical devices such as ventilators, CT scanners and patient monitors where failure is not acceptable. These materials tolerate the stress and misalignment put on medical components and make them an ideal solution for:

  • Push-pull connectors
  • Circular connectors
  • High data rate flat cable connectors
  • Non-magnetic RF connectors
  • Board-to-board connectors
  • I/O connectors
  • Other miniature connectors
  • Switches and relays

Our alloys such as M25 and Alloy 25, Alloy 290 and Alloy 174 offer unique properties including: 

Machinability | High yield strength | High conductivity | Low magnetic permeability | Fatigue strength | Good electrical conductivity |

This unique property set supports miniaturization and enables components to withstand a high number of mating or operating cycles and to hold up under the high temperature sterilization environment of medical applications.
