Electronics Manufacturer of the Year
Smiths Interconnect proudly collaborated with leading medical technology organizations around the world to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
We have long been a trusted partner to key ventilator manufacturers providing high reliability connectors renowned for their durability and unfaltering performance in critical environments.
As a global organization with design and manufacturing locations in North Africa, APAC, the Americas and Europe, we have worked across nations, time zones and cultures to rapidly produce the connectivity solutions needed to support medical programmes around the globe. It is at the forefront of our operating model and at the heart of how we support our customers – especially in times of extreme crisis.
In particular, we’ve delivered board-to-board connectors with HypertacÂ® hyperboloid technology (KNB series) utilized within a French-made portable ventilator found in ambulances, ambulatory helicopters and hospitals; push-pull, hyperboloid circular connectors (D series) used to provide power to a US developed; Asia manufactured ventilator system; and finally board-to-board connectors (custom interposers) with spring probe contacts used for mating with replaceable battery packs in a UK developed breathing system.
