Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Leads, Cables, and Wires

Custom-Designed Automated External Defibrillator Connector

Minnesota Wire specializes in producing custom connectors and medical cables for use with Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). We will custom engineer your medical connectors to match the unique specifications of your device.

Special Features for AED Applications

Minnesota Wire’s custom connectors are specifically engineered for AEDs. Our connectors can be manufactured with either tinned copper or carbon-fiber conductors.

Carbon fiber is barely visible on x-ray and other imaging equipment. This eliminates the need to remove the electrode wires from the patient before imaging—providing an invaluable safeguard to the patient without negatively impacting results.

A typical Minnesota Wire AED cable contains 12,000 strands of conductive carbon fiber, yet weighs less than a conventional copper-conductor wire. Our carbon-fiber medical cables are flexible, lightweight, and offer small bend radii together with good low-signal transmission capabilities.

Custom Designed Defibrillator Leads

Minnesota Wire specializes in extruding carbon fiber. We are adept at designing, fabricating, and manufacturing custom connectors for AEDs. Whether you have a complete CAD blueprint for the medical connectors or cable that your project requires or just a basic concept, our engineering team will help you develop custom defibrillator leads that meet your exact requirements.

From the simplest designs to the most complex custom connectors, we have the production capabilities to deliver high-performance leads that meet defibrillator manufacturers’ requirements.

We will work with you to determine the best material choices for your product’s performance requirements. Numerous material options are available for every component of your custom product.
