Miniature connectors with IP68 rating for body-worn applications

The Fischer MiniMax Series of miniature rugged connectors handles and power connections in a higher-density configuration, enabling designers to save design space and reduce weight by as much as 75 percent. The miniature solution is suited for handheld or body-worn applications when space is limited. It also can be designed into smaller devices and can lower the total cost of ownership.

The Fischer MiniMax Series is available in two sizes, 06 and 08, with receptacles having 10 mm and 12 mm footprints, respectively. It is available in three locking systems – push-pull, screw, and quick-release – and are designed to connect and disconnect up to 5,000 times. Configurations range from four to 24 contacts; the connectors are tested for high-speed protocols such as USB 3.0, HDMI, and data transfer up to 10 gigabits per second. The series is IP68 (sealing) rated for both mated and unmated connectors.
