ITT Cannon Introduces New Push Pull PL Series Connectors for Medical and Industrial Applications


IRVINE, Calif., – ITT Corporation’s (NYSE:ITT) Cannon brand has launched a new line of high-performance, plastic push pull interconnects for medical and industrial applications.
The PL Series offers a quick connect-and-disconnect capability for cable-to-cable and cable-to-board applications. Its lightweight, sterilizable and easy grip design makes the connector series particularly well suited to the rigors of the medical device market.

“ITT Cannon has long been a trusted supplier to medical imaging device makers and global healthcare customers, who depend on our products to accurately diagnose and provide treatment,” said Gary Ashurst, vice president and general manager of transportation and industrial for ITT’s Interconnect Solutions business.

“The launch of the push pull PL Series expands our medical portfolio and reinforces our commitment to device makers, healthcare professionals and patients.”

Specific medical applications for the PL Series include dental tools, electrosurgery tools, ECG devices, catheters, sensors, respirators and defibrillators. Industrial applications include industrial electronics, controls systems and test and measurement applications.

The series, which offers a wide range of pin counts and has multiple color and keying options, is fully intermateable with existing push pull industry solutions and can be combined with ITT Cannon’s value added cable assembly solutions.

The PL Series delivers a cost effective solution for both reusable and disposable applications without sacrificing the performance and quality that have helped make ITT Cannon a trusted brand in the medical diagnostic and imaging market for more than 30 years.
