Calmont Wire & Cable has been awarded ISO 13485:2016 certification for its Santa Ana, California, manufacturing facility. The certification is for the design and manufacturing of customer wire and cable for medical device applications. ISO 13485 is the leading quality management standard for manufacturers of medical devices.
“This ISO certification demonstrates Calmont’s dedication and commitment to manufacturing the highest quality wire and cable products in the medical industry and to helping our customers meet their quality goals,” said Todd Johnson, president of Calmont Wire & Cable.
Demand for high performance wire and cable capability continues to grow to support continuous advances in medical device technology. Calmont’s custom cable design, prototyping, and manufacturing capabilities are tailored to support medical device manufacturers’ need for smaller, stronger, more flexible cables that can be built to withstand sterilisation and heavy usage in a variety of treatment, diagnostic, and monitoring applications. Calmont specializes in delivering high speed, low noise interconnect and power cables.
EtherCAT is a real-time Industrial Ethernet technology originally developed by Beckhoff Automation. Historically, EtherCAT used 4-pole shielded M8x1 connectors and a standard Ethernet cable, with the power supply provided by a separate cable. The latest development “EtherCAT-P” by Beckhoff and the associated ETG (EtherCAT Technology Group) enables a combination of super fast EtherCAT communication and 24 V power supply for system and sensor supply with 24 V | 3 A in a single two-wire data pair and Conec have the connectors and patch cables to match.
Calmont Wire and Cable provided it’s highly flexible and durable Siliflex wire and other custom cables to distribute power and signal to many of the Cassini spacecraft’s operating systems.
Mixed layout combination d-sub connectors offer the ability to integrate signal contacts, 50 and 75 Ohm coax, up to 40Amp high power, and high voltage contacts in a standard d-sub shell.

Power over M12 connectors
A new variant has been added to the Conec M12x1 product portfolio from In2Connect.
Circular Connectors size M12 are used in many different applications from signal transmission to sensor technology and data transmission in field bus technology. These new power connectors with T-coding (63 Volts) and S-coding (630 volts) open up the M12 for use in the power range.
Whatever happened to McMurdo Connectors?
Well, in 1998 McMurdo Connectors were acquired by ITW Switches (now part of the ITW Appliance Group) and ITW McMurdo connectors are available now from In2Connect in the UK.
In2Connect UK stock arguably the widest range of ITW McMurdo “Special” D-sub connectors and connector accessories available anywhere. So much so that as well as our OEM partners, many other distributors Worldwide rely on In2Connect stock to satisfy their clients.
Large volume PCB assemblies can be designed with more flexibility keeping space requirements to a minimum with these new One27® SMT PCB connectors in Tape and Reel format from ept.
In2Connect carries a wide variety of D-sub connector families and accessories. The Sunkye R04 Micro D-sub connectors to MIL-DTL-83513 and R06 Nano D-sub connectors to MIL-DTL-32139 are highly reliable and are comparable to many other brands like Glenair, ITT, etc whilst offering a superior cost/performance ratio. The accepted standard twist pin pitch is 0.635mm (0.025″) but Sunkye’s twist pin contact technology based on extensive research and production has produced and qualification tested nano pogo pin contacts with an incredible 0.381mm pitch (0.015″) thus producing the ultimate connector footprint for the smallest and most demanding spaces.
Every medical cable application is different so why settle for an off the shelf solution for a unique problem? Many discussion boards indicate that when someone is looking for a specialised medical cable the advice usually tells them to call Belden or Alpha. There is nothing wrong with Alpha or Belden, however keep in mind that they produce generic wire and cable that covers a wide variety of uses and may not meet all your needs.
