Connectors

As Plexon offers a variety of headstages–generally utilizing female Omnetics input connectors–we stock a selection of mating connectors in house for a quick turn-around.

 

We offer connectors compatible with all Plexon headstages.

Connectors are available in various pitch, pin and channel counts. Additionally, we offer latching connectors for a more secure connection, MRI compaticle, nickel-free connectors, and the Mill-Max connector used with the CereStage™ channel headstage.

The table below represents the most popular connectors requested by our customers. However, we are able to accommodate other needs as well. The most advantageous combinations of connectors, headstages and headstage cables for your specific circumstances can be best determined with the assistance of your Plexon Sales Engineer.
