Fischer Connectors has extended its Fischer MiniMax™ Series, now offering a pin socket version of the miniature high-performance rugged connector.

The series, which was first launched in 2012, is now available both in 19 and 24-pin configuration, giving designers more flexibility, especially where space and weight restrictions play a role.

This innovative, first-to-market, high-density miniature solution with a unique combination of power and signal contacts enables more functionality into smaller devices and lowers the total cost of ownership.

The connector is ideally suited for handheld or body-worn applications, for instrumentation and for test equipment where user-friendliness and easy handling are a must.

The pin socket version of the Fischer MiniMax™ Series is available as standalone connector, able to be mounted on a flex or cabled by the users, or as a complete pre-cabled solution.

While the 24-pin configuration is available with 4-power and 20-signal contacts, the 19-pin configuration of the Fischer MiniMax™ Series will feature 4 -power and 15-signal contacts as standard.

It was also have a unique feature which will give in the ability to increase the number of power contacts depending on the cable used.

Within the signal contacts, there are two advanced contacts for USB power connections as available option.

The Fischer MiniMax™ Series is available in three latching systems: push-pull, screw lock and quick release. The most important specifications are as follows:

  • Small profile: less than 7mm inside the box
  • Sealed IP68 (2m/24h), both mated and unmated
  • Unbreakable keying system withstands over 4 Nm of torque
  • Over-molded assemblies able to withstand 40 kg of pull (break-away) force

Fischer Connectors will pre-launch the pin socket version of the Fischer MiniMax™ Series on its booth Hall B3 stand 219 during Electronica in Munich, Germany from 11 to 14 November 2014.
