Medical cables - Used in many applications

Kabelleistung in der Medizintechnik

From diagnostics to life support devices, medical cables play a crucial role in modern healthcare. The challenges are great: ultrasound devices, X-ray machines and the like, for example, have to be connected to the PC or other systems for modern information processing. Special cables are used to guarantee smooth operation.

Medical cables - State-of-the-art technology in the smallest possible space

Particularly high requirements apply to medical devices. Not only various data have to be transmitted and read out, as is the case with imaging devices such as special cameras for surgeons. The cables must also be suitable for use in confined spaces. Ernst & Engbring is responding to the trend towards ever smaller, more compact devices with special medical cables such as miniature cables and flat cables. Based on our many years of experience, we develop and manufacture tailor-made cable solutions up to AWG 56 (conductor diameter 0.0124 mm).

Medical cables - Many elements combined to save space

Since medical technology often requires different devices to be connected to each other and controlled centrally, so-called hybrid cables are also used as medical cables. Here we bundle various elements under one cable sheath. The advantages for our customers are numerous. Compared to using several cables, you save space as well as material costs.

Medical cables - Specific cables for your requirements

Particularly for specialized clinics and in medical research, the requirements can often not be met with standard cables such as those produced by industry. As experts for special cables with know-how and experience, we therefore develop specific medical cables for our customers. These efficient solutions are based on your effective requirements. This enables them to meet your specifications while still being extremely cost-effective.
