Advanced Fibre-Optic Interconnect Solutions for Medical Devices

DIAMOND has been providing high-performance interconnect solutions to the medical industry for many years. Its active core alignment (ACA) process is a unique manufacturing technique used in the production of its connectors and fibre-optic components that minimises fibre-to-fibre eccentricity between connector ferrules resulting in a dramatic reduction of insertion loss (IL).

The ACA process can be applied to any type of fibre and results in high return loss (RL) and low IL.

DIAMOND supplies a range of customised solutions to meet specific customer requirements in terms of sterilisability, magnetic field compatibility, constraints, optomechanical performance, reliability and traceability.

The company’s knowledgeable staff is experienced in adapting different technologies to accommodate specific customer needs. Its in-house capabilities include design, development, manufacturing and fibre-optic testing.

DIAMOND’s ISO 7 Cleanroom is suitable for manufacturing, testing and packaging products in a controlled environment.

E-2000™ EtO-sterilisation proof connection with the optional IP-65 protection

The DIAMOND E-2000™ EtO/IP 65 connection is based on the standard E-2000™ connector and mating adapter, but incorporates some additional parts that provide an excellent sealed optical connection.

This solution is available for all standard multimode (MM), single-mode (SM), physical contact (PC) / angle-polished connectors (APC), polarisation maintaining (PM), power solution SM/MM and visible light (VIS) / near-infrared (NIR) short wavelength interfaces.

The DiaLink fibre-optic connector

DIAMOND offers the user-friendly DiaLink connector utilising push-pull technology for easy handling with protected end-faces to reduce the need for cleaning.  Moreover, the small diameter circular profile of the connector allows for the design of smaller medical devices and the integration within rotary joints, which require a well-balanced connector necessary to manage vibrations.

The E-2000™ EtO-Sterilization Proof Connection with optional IP 65 protection has been designed to meet today's requirements for safety, reliability and quality within several markets...
The flourishing growth of fibre-optics beyond the original telecom industry into other fast-emerging fields has significantly expanded the requirements of optical fibre interfaces.
