The pulse oximeter probe uses an inexpensive connector to electrically interconnect the sensor elements with the pulse oximeter. One segment of the probe connector contains a set of connector pins that are wired to the sensor elements. Another segment of the probe connector is equipped with a mating configuration of sockets which align with these pins. Three projections function to automatically align the connector pins with the connector sockets. Two of the projections engage a mating aperture in the other connector segment to fasten the two connector segments together, while a third projection aligns with an edge of the other connector segment to position the two connector segments.
