High-Speed Data in a High-Density Signal & Power Miniature Connector
The Fischer MiniMax™ Series increases the performance of miniature rugged devices. This ultra-miniature connector is a high-density, low-weight solution to wearable and mobile equipment challenges. Several configurations in two sizes provide 4 to 24 combined signal & power connections, available with a choice of three locking systems (push-pull, quick-release and screw). Rugged, with IP68 sealing for durability, the Fischer MiniMax™ Series features special contact blocks to enable high-speed data transmission over long distancesvia USB 3.0, HDMI and up to 10 Gb/s Ethernet.
This highly-engineered miniature connector is ideally suited for applications where Space, Weight and Power (SWaP) are critical, increasing portability and resisting water, corrosion, vibration, shock and extreme temperatures.
Available in anthracite (new standard) and black and as a pre-cabled solution.
Key features include:
•Up to 24 signal & power contacts in just 12 mm
•45% smaller and 75% lighter
•Can replace multiple large connectors
•Combines multiple protocols into one connector
High-speed data transfer
•USB 2.0 and 3.0
•Ethernet (up to 10 Gb/s)
•IP68 watertight (20m/24 hours)
•5,000 mating cycle
•1,000 hours salt mist spray
Application examples: medical, drone, remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) and solar aviation.
From medical to manufacturing, instrumentation and defense, the demand for high-density connectivity solution continues to drive innovation. The MiniMax solution is ideally suited for devices manufacturers looking for ruggedized, sealed and shielded connectors, with reduced weight and size, combined with optimal usability and performance.
High-Speed Data Transfer
Minimax 08 holds a unique high-density configuration of eight AWG24 (American Wire Gauge) contacts for high-speed Ethernet, a dedicated optimized contact block for USB 3.0 as well as a 19-pin HDMI solution – ideal for rugged applications. This miniature connector provides a reliable data processing and signal integrity for the next generation of electronics.
Whether for military, industrial or commercial applications, our interconnect solutions give unmanned aircrafts greater flight autonomy, the ability to carry heavier payloads and resistance to severe environments.
Fischer Connectors’ sealed solutions are leveraging our historical and always improving know-how of underwater and pressurized environments applications.
The Fischer MiniMax™ Series has been engineered for extreme environments where reliability and performance of high-density electrical connectors are critical, built for a maximum of mating cycles, vibration resistant and with the new standard IP68 sealing level of -20m for 24 hours.
