The company helps customers achieve goals by continually investing in connector product design and functionality, ensuring that the device manufacturers and their users can take advantage of the latest technologies.

Fischer Connectors' product lines include several connecting solutions for military, defense and security applications. Fischer Ultimate™ Series features a miniature, ultra-light and rugged design, extremely robust keying, high shock and vibration resistance, excellent shielding, and ultimate sealing level IP68/69 even unmated.

The Fischer UltiMate™ Series is available in five sizes (07, 08, 11, 13 and 18) and in configurations from 2 to 42 pins. Cable assembly solutions are available in both straight and right angle overmolding. For ultimate protection of unmated connectors in the field, soft caps and bend relief are available for all sizes, including a wide range of tools and accessories.

Fischer Core Series

The Fischer Core Series offers high performance push-pull connectors and cable assembly solutions. Rugged, reliable, sealed or hermetic, lightweight and compact, Fischer Core Series is trusted by high-end industries worldwide.

The Fischer Rugged Flash Drive is an extremely tough USB memory stick specially designed for safe storage and transportation of sensitive data in harsh environments. The memory module is securely mounted within a rugged aluminum casing designed to provide full protection against extreme environmental conditions. Sealed IP 68/69K even unmated, the Fischer Rugged Flash Drive is waterproof down to 120 meters and is resistant to extreme operating temperatures (-40°C to +85°C).

Fischer FiberOptic Series

The Fischer FiberOptic Series secured robust optical performance under any condition. This interconnecting technology offers the essential quality and stability needed for an optical link combined with extreme robustness, easy mating and easy cleaning. The Fischer FiberOptic connector will perform perfectly in harsh and extreme environments. It has a high ingress protection of IP68 when mated and IP67 in unmated conditions. In addition, Fischer Connectors' FiberOptic optical performance is insensitive to mechanical strain on the connector. The spring optical contacts employed allow for filtering out any stress applied to the connector housings while keeping the typical advantage of a push-pull solution: quick, safe and easy locking.

Fischer Connectors recently extended its Fischer FiberOptic Series with a new and revolutionary hybrid connector and now offers a solution with two fiber channels and two electrical contacts (FOH 2-2) in one small high performance connector.

The unique aspect of the brand new Fischer FiberOptic Series hybrid connector is that both fiber and electrical contacts are now offered in a single rugged connecting solution, allowing both power and data to be transmitted flawlessly through one connector. This saves space, money, design and installation time, and offers premium optical performance in all environments, indoor or outdoor.

Fischer MiniMax™ Series

The innovative Fischer MiniMax™ Series has twenty signal and four power connections in one small, dense pre-cabled connection solution. It is designed for the harshest environments, passing extreme temperature tests and boosts an impressive 1,000 hours of salt water spray. The Fischer MiniMax™ Series is more cost-effective not only because the connector is physically, but with the 24-contact configuration fewer connectors are used. On top of that, there are fewer cables needed, so the entire device becomes more cost effective and stays reliable.

Fischer Connectors' primary design and manufacturing facilities are located in Saint-Prex, Switzerland, with subsidiaries and distributors located worldwide.
