Fischer Connectors SA in Saint-Prex, Switzerland, is introducing the Mini- Max series of high-density rugged miniature connectors for handheld or wearable electronic devices in military, medical, and test applications requiring connectors that are easy for users to handle. Fischer MiniMax connectors are IP68-rated even unmated, which makes them suitable for underwater applications, even in the case of accidental disconnection.
It is also waterproof to a depth of nearly 400 feet for a 24-hour submersion. Fischer MiniMax connectors have twenty 0.5-amp signal contacts and four 5-amp power contacts, providing three times more pins than a standard Fischer connector of similar size, company officials say. The miniature connectors are 11.9 millimeters in diameter and 12.5 millimeters long. The connector’s ergonomic, rugged design is convenient to manipulate with one hand only, even with gloves, company officials say. It has endurable keying, visual color coding to avoid misconnection and improve safety, and a push-pull locking or quick- release system.
