Hypertronics developed this interconnect in response to the medical trends toward less invasive procedures, for applications such as electrophysiology catheters, endoscopes and intravascular ultrasound. A sterilization cable for multiple mating cycles links to the interconnect through a single-use connector, and you can add embedded electronics. The connector can take as many as 100,000 mating cycles and has less-than 8mV contact resistance for small-signal contacts, using the Hypertacģ contact system. This system uses a contact sleeve made out of wires that stretch around the pins when inserted, for many linear contact paths.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
