Hypertronics Corporation has expanded their patent pending HyperGrip product line. The product line now offers more configurations, including connectors with 20 (HG3), 34 (HG4), or 85 (HG6) pin positions to complement the growing 12-pin position connector (HG2). Designed specifically for the medical industry, HyperGrip is a user-configurable circular connector which is color-coded and customer key-able for accurate and quick connections on medical equipment. This HyperGrip keying system allows users greater freedom and diversity to build connectors with six different keying options from a set of common components, thereby reducing cost, lead time and inventory. All HyperGrip sizes include an option for IP67 level sealing protecting the product when immersed in water to a depth of 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. Also unique to HyperGrip is the front or rear panel mount receptacle design which allows the user to mount the harness assembly from inside or outside of the device enclosure. HyperGrip also incorporates the Hypertac® contact technology which provides high mating cycle, low insertion force and the high reliability required for the medical market.
