Zero insertion force (ZIF) connectorsThe range of zero insertion force (ZIF) connectors are for medical diagnostic and imaging equipment. Utilizing a landed contact system, there is no connector engagement force, and the only wear on the contacts occurs as they are pressed together and lightly wiped past each other during the camming and locking operation. The connectors feature a minimum rated life of 10,000 complete mating and unmating cycles with no performance loss, and they can be mated in less than two seconds and crosstalk is kept to a minimum, making them ideal for ultrasound, patient monitoring and portable imaging equipment, MRI machines, and hospital equipment. The ZIF plug and receptacle devices include the DL Series and DLD Series thermoplastic connectors; DLM Series, DL4 Series and DLP136-272 Series aluminum connectors; DLP 408 Series zinc alloy connector; and QLC zinc connector. Available in contact arrangements ranging from 60 to 2496, the connectors feature gold-plated copper alloy contact material and cost as much as 25% less per mated line than singular high-density rack-and-panel connectors.
