High density, signal & power in one miniature connector

The Fischer MiniMax™ Series increases the performance of your miniature rugged devices, handling more mixed signal and power connections in a unique combination of up to 24 contacts. This innovative, first-to-market, high density miniature solution provides more functionality into smaller devices and lowers the total cost of ownership. This high performance rugged connector will save space and weight. The Fischer MiniMax™ Series can also come as a pre-cabled  solution and is ideally suited for handheld or body-worn applications when space is limited, for instrumentation, and for test equipment where user-friendliness and easy handling are a must.

The Fischer MiniMax™ Series is now available both in 19 and 24 pin configurations. While the 24 pin configuration is available with 4 power and 20 signal contacts, the 19 pin configuration of the Fischer MiniMax™ Series features 4 power and 15 signal contacts as standard, with as unique feature the possibility to increase the number of power contacts depending on the cable used. Within the signal contacts, there are 2 advanced contacts for USB power connections as an option. The Fischer MiniMax™ Series is available in three latching systems: push-pull, screw lock and quick release.
