SABmed Cables and Wires (SAB) provides a range of connector cables for use in medical devices.
With high-abrasion and considerable tear strength, the SABmed cable series is made of a bio-compatible material that is adaptable and provides a smooth finish. The company’s products have been approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and include an option for non-blooming.
SAB’s connection cables have applications in medical devices for electro therapy and surgery, as well as for dental technologies.
Flexible, easy-to-clean connection cables with non-sticking surface
SAB’s cables are flexible and reliable, typically having a long service-life. They are also easy-to-clean as they can be disinfected using a wiper or an autoclave. This helps ensure medical devices using the cables are adherent to US standards. Other beneficial characteristics of SAB’s products include bio-compatibility, a low-weight, and a non-sticking surface. They are also designed to avoid torsion if coiled by hand.
Customised cable connections for temperature sensors
Nearly every cable type made by SAB has been designed from special material SABmed, which was produced by Viersen’s special cable manufacturer SAB Bröckskes. These wires are bio-compatible according to EN ISO 10993-5, offering strong characteristics, with regard to notch resistance. They can also be offered as an interface for bus systems such as CAT5, CAT6, CAT7, RS232, and USB.
SAB is able to manufacture and design connection cables for temperature sensors using the SABmed S material. Personalised designs are available, matching the cable colour to the medical device where it will be used.
Cable materials for improved strength, smoothness, UL approval, and non-blooming
SAB offers four material options for its cables. The range includes standard types and dimensions to specialised wiring to suit client requirements. The materials that can be used are:
- The standard material SABmed S Classic is selected for its high-notch and tear propagation strength. It is also flexible and robust, used effectively in a large variety of medical devices
- SABmed S Ultraflexible is a premium material chosen for its improved smoothness. It offers high-mobility
- SABmed S UL is a SABIX R med material range with UL approval. It is used for low-voltage medical devices
- SABmed S Platin is a special compound of the SABIX R med material, which completely avoids the blooming effect. This means decomposition products do not appear on the cable’s sheath. This material is used for small quantities, especially pilot projects
