Standex Custom Transformers, Electronics for Medical Imaging Featured at RSNA

September 8, 2011 — Standex Electronics will feature custom and planar transformers, custom electronic components and magnetic reed switches – including the world’s smallest – for OEM medical imaging devices at RSNA 2011, Nov. 27 – Dec. 2 in Chicago.

These micro-components allow medical designers to significantly reduce the size of their devices while maintaining performance.  Standex custom transformers and electronic components are at work in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and high-definition (HD) video imaging, patient tables, medical and dental lighting, and more; micro-miniature reed switches are ideal for hearing aids, pill cams, bone shavers, and other surgical and medical devices.

In addition, custom Standex components enable design engineers to incorporate upstream and downstream components like connectors, wiring harnesses, switches and more to streamline production and assembly; this saves labor and component costs.

A “global footprint” allows the manufacture in ISO registered facilities closer to the worldwide usage point – thus simplifying logistics and reducing shipping costs.
