Amphenol Alden PL-1200RG-N Auto-Coupling Pulse-Lok® Connectors

Amphenol Alden PL-1200RG-N Auto-Coupling Pulse-Lok® Connectors are plastic shell connectors specifically designed for electro-surgical catheter applications. These connectors feature Pulse-Lok™ auto-latch and quick-release mechanisms to confirm continuity in critical surgical applications. The PL-1200RG-N connectors, available with up to 78 contact positions, withstand a minimum of 5000 mating cycles. These connectors provide thermoplastic connector housing and rubber flex reliefs. The PL-1200RG-N connectors are water-proof and operate in a temperature range from -20°C to +105°C. The Amphenol Alden PL-1200RG-N Auto-Coupling Pulse-Lok® Connectors can be sterilized by steam sterilization, gamma sterilization, and Ethylene Oxide (EtO) sterilization methods.
