Non-magnetic micro connectors for MRI

Small, robust and extremely non-magnetic! These are the qualities of the new micro-D connectors developed by Axon’ Cable.  These miniature connectors are designed for devices, which rely on magnetism when operating.  This is the case, for example, for MRI scanners where the magnetic field generated must remain constant and stable to obtain reliable and high quality 3D images.

The non-magnetic connectors developed by Axon’ Cable have not only a very low residual magnetic field  (less than 1 nT – about 50,000 times lower than the earth’s magnetic field), but it is also almost impossible to magnetize them.  They cannot, therefore, interfere with the magnetic fields produced by the magnets of medical imaging devices or particle accelerators used by scientists.
