ST-PREX, Switzerland, 16 June 2016. Fischer Connectors in St-Prex, Switzerland is introducing the MiniMax 06 small ultra-miniature connector for space-limited body-worn or handheld applications in defense and security, instrumentation, test equipment, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The MiniMax 06 connector can include as many as 12 power and signal contacts in a footprint of only 10 millimeters. This corresponds to a density factor of 0.83 -- a technological feature for a connector with standard 0.5 millimeters contacts.

The MiniMax 06 connector also includes a configuration with two signal and two high-power 1.3 millimeters contacts for applications that need 10 amps or more power. MiniMax 06 is easy to use and ensures premium performance even in harsh environments.

MiniMax 06 integrates into the ultra-miniature high-performance Fischer MiniMax series, well-known for its use in limited space and lightweight applications, and for meeting the combined needs of signals and power.

Tested for high-speed protocols such as HDMI and data transfer as many as 10 gigabits per second, the series also addresses the growing market need for higher data transmission rates.

These connectors are ruggedized with mated and unmated IP68 sealing, an unbreakable keying system, and over-molded cable assemblies. The connectors are available in three locking systems: push-pull, screw, and quick-release, and be connected and disconnected as many as 5,000 times.

The MiniMax series comes in two sizes, 06 and 08, with receptacles of 10 millimeters and 12 millimeters. Configurations range from four to 24 contacts.
