Innovations Applied

Our LQR™ lock/quick release system allows for simple, reliable locking of parts in the primary position, and fast separation of parts in the secondary position. The LQR is ideal for use in quick-release electrical connectors, solder-free electrical connections, underwater connectors, satellite/orbital connectors, mechanical lock connectors, quick fasteners, fluidic connectors, and tamper-proof applications. Our Bal Contact™ electrical contacts can help effectively manage high, medium and low current in a wide range of applications. Together, these fastening and conducting technologies help design engineers create more efficient, reliable connectors and connection systems for a wide range of applications, including downhole tools for oil and gas exploration.

Closed-Loop Functionality in Medical Electronics

In the world of medical electronics, the title for biggest breakthrough goes to closed loop functionality. This technological milestone has helped device designers achieve new levels of active implantable performance, and it has driven change in three crucial areas: power conservation (providing stimulation only as needed through neural feedback), improved patient efficacy (adjusting therapy based on changing patient condition), and better feedback tools (communicating real-time information via wireless to doctors).

Closed-loop devices, such as those used to control epilepsy, for example, use implantable multi-electrode arrays and amplifiers to record electrical signals. These signals can be used to predict a seizure, and can even apply preventative electrical stimulation in advance.

This closed-loop functionality in active implantables requires optimal power efficiency and signal isolation, and much of this is dependent upon the performance of electrical contacts and contact systems used to connect leads to batteries and electronics.
