Title (EN) MEDICAL SENSOR CONNECTOR WITH REMOVABLE ENCODING DEVICE
(FR) CONNECTEUR POUR CAPTEUR MEDICAL A DISPOSITIF DE CODAGE AMOVIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) A connector (10) for a medical sensor is provided. The connector (10) includes a number of contacts, and includes an electronic device (26) for encoding a characteristic of the medical sensor. The electronic device (26) is insertable into the connector (10). This simplifies the design of a sensor, which no longer needs to include a calibration element. In addition, the sensor can be made more cheaply, which is especially important for disposable sensors.
(FR) L'invention concerne un connecteur (10) destiné à un capteur médical. Le connecteur (10) comprend un certain nombre de contacts, ainsi qu'un dispositif électronique (26) qui permet de coder une caractéristique du capteur médical et qui peut être inséré dans le connecteur (10). Ceci simplifie la conception des capteurs, qui n'ont plus besoin de comporter un élément de calibrage et qui en outre peuvent être fabriqués à moindre coût, ce qui est particulièrement important pour des capteurs jetables.
