Fischer Connectors: safe, reliable, rugged solutions for harsh defence environments
About Fischer Connectors
Known for their reliability, precision and resistance to demanding and harsh environments, Fischer Connectors’ connectivity solutions – both electrical and optical connectors, cable assemblies and active devices – are ideally suited for use in defence operations globally.
Tested to MIL-SPEC and IEC standards, Fischer Connectors’ products are engineered to withstand the most extreme field conditions in Dismounted Soldier, Ground, Aerospace and Marine applications. They are ideally suited for military devices, equipment and electronic ecosystems in terms of SWaP requirements (Size, Weight and Power), cable management optimisation and integrated wearable technology for the Dismounted Soldier Modernisation Programme and in line with the Generic Soldier Architecture (GSA).
Human factor engineered
Rugged, lightweight and compact
Easy blind mating, even with gloves
Sealed (up to IP68, even unmated) and hermetic connectors
Extreme temperature resistance, dust- and sand-proof solutions
EMI shielded connectors for reliable data transmission
The durable Fischer UltiMate™ Series and cable assembly solutions are best for tough applications when weight matters. Rugged, compact, lightweight, they withstand severe environmental, industrial and chemical conditions.
10,000 mating cycles, extremely robust mechanical keying, IP68/69 sealing even unmated (tested on request to -120m/24h)
360° EMC shielding with a grounding contact ring
Exceptional shock, vibration and corrosion resistance
Operating temperature from -55°C to 135°C
Locking push-pull or emergency release, robust keying with 4 different codes, blind mating, anti-reflective and conductive body coating in grey anthracite
Designed to be highly configurable with a choice of crimp, solder or PCB contacts, plus bend relief and colour overmoulding
Power connector: 2x contacts 30 Amps each - 3x contacts 16 Amps each + 3x signal contacts
Fischer MiniMax™ Series: high-density miniaturization, high-speed data transfer, reliability
Tested for high-speed protocols such as USB 3.0, HDMI and Ethernet 10 Gb/s with AWG24 contacts, the high-density Fischer MiniMax™ Series is a unique miniature signal and power solution suited to applications when density, signal and power, and size matter. Replacing multiple connectors with a single connector saves space and weight, giving designers more flexibility.
Available as a standalone connector or as a complete pre-cabled solution
Configurations of 4 to 24 contacts, sizes 06 and 08 with receptacles of 10mm and 12mm footprint respectively
Tough: IP68 (2m/24h) sealing (both mated and unmated), unbreakable keying system withstanding more than 4 Nm of torque, over-molded assemblies withstanding 40kg of pull (break-away) force
The multiple award-winning breakthrough plug & use Fischer Freedom™ Series serves as a versatile technology platform and innovation enabler in connectivity and application design, setting new standards in usability, integration capability and versatility for any defence applications.
Low-profile Fischer LP360TM connectors (in metal and high-end & durable plastic), cable assemblies and active devices (LED, USB adaptor, rugged flash drive)
360° blind mating freedom (no key code) with non-magnetic quick-release locking mechanism
4 or 7 signal and power contacts, up to 24AWG, USB 2.0 and Ethernet
Fully cleanable (plug and receptacle) thanks to membrane-sealed contacts
IP68 sealed to -20m/24h (metal version) IP67 sealed mated and unmated (plastic)
Optimized cable management: reduced clutter and snagging thanks to 360o mating freedom and any direction cable plugging and routing, possible cable-free solutions with the direct integration of the plug into the device’s housing.
Fischer Core Series: any size, any configuration, any application
With waterproof sealing up to IP68 / IP69 mated and unmated, along with three independent sealing barriers, the versatile Fischer Core Series connectors and cable assembly solutions are relied upon by military forces worldwide. They withstand shocks, vibrations, immersion, corrosion and extreme temperatures. Manufactured under the most stringent quality conditions, these secure push-pull connections can easily be combined with other product lines.
The Fischer FiberOptic Series is well-known of its robust and faultless optical performances in any conditions, combined with easy use, cleaning and maintenance even in the field.
UPC and APC polishing reducing insertion and return losses
IP68 sealing for highly valuable device protection
Push-pull locking system for quick and easy connections and disconnections
Removable sleeve holder (monobloc mate adapter) ensuring that end faces can be cleaned easily, keeping electronics in top condition
Come pre-cabled and available in two versions: 1, 2 or 4 optical channels, or in a hybrid version with 2 fibre channels and 2 electrical contacts allowing both power and data to be transmitted flawlessly through one small connector
Fischer Rugged Flash Drive: data portability and security
The Fischer Rugged Flash Drive is an extremely tough memory stick, specially designed for safe storage and transportation of sensitive data in harsh environments. It is suitable for use with ruggedised computers, among other defence applications.
Unique Fischer Connectors’ circular connector interface (UltiMate, MiniMax and Freedom/LP360) combined with durable encapsulation technique, guaranteeing data safety in case of loss or theft
