Breakthrough low-profile Fischer LP360™ connectivity technology
Fischer LP360™ comprises a range of versatile, plug and use connectivity solutions that includes connectors, cable assemblies and active devices belonging to the Fischer Freedom™ Series, launched in June 2018 and extended in September 2019. These low-profile, easy-to-mate and fully cleanable solutions are easy to use and easy to integrate into applications operating in diverse and challenging environments, including fixed, portable and wearable electronic ecosystems and cable-free devices delivering power and data with optimized cabling. launched on 11 June 2018. This breakthrough low-profile, easy-to-mate and fully cleanable connector is easy to use and is easy to integrate into applications operating in diverse and challenging environments, including portable and wearable electronic ecosystems delivering power and data with optimized cabling.
Initially developed for a defense application - hence the focus on this market here -, Fischer LP360™ provides extremely reliable and intuitive solutions: tested to MIL standards, it is ideal for defense applications, even in the harshest environments and under the most demanding conditions. Its reliability and versatility also make it ideal for a wide variety of applications within other markets such as security, medical, industrial and civil engineering, robotics, wearables, IoT, etc.
NEW product extensions to the Fischer LP360™ as of September 2019:
Connector size 08 (4 signal & power contacts) in metal and plastic
Cabled receptacle and panel plug on connector size 14 (7 signal & power contacts)
Active devices: USB 2.0 adaptor, LED and Rugged Flash Drive
Soldiers in military operations need to have the most accurate equipment and integrated connectivity solutions. Fischer Connectors is a trusted partner of future soldier programs around the world, and its rugged connectivity solutions are engineered to withstand the most extreme field conditions, lighten the load for soldiers on a mission, and maximize the usability, efficiency and performance of military equipment.
The versatility of the breakthrough plug & use technology offered by the new Fischer Freedom™ Series makes it ideal for wearables and for a multitude of Dismounted Soldier, Ground, Aerospace and Marine applications.
The Fischer Freedom™ Series technology platform continues to gain international peer recognition: winning four awards in one year (web news, July 18, 2019). From left to right: 2018 Innovators Award, 2018 LEAP Award, 2019 Electronics Industry Award, 2019 Electrons d'Or.
Optimized Cable Management
The new connectivity solutions play a major role in lifting one of the most basic roadblocks for Future Soldier Programs: cable management.
Fischer LP360™ eliminates the key code and thus offers 360° mating freedom, meaning the connector and active devices can be plugged and routed in any direction, ensuring that, for example, the cable on a vest can always go straight to the device. No more twists and turns means shorter cables in the kitted equipment. This also eliminates tangles, reduces clutter and increases usability, making equipment lighter and faster to set up.
Fully cleanable on both the receptacle and plug sides, the new solutions are easy to use and maintain with a faster set up and improved durability.
Plug & Use! Opt for cable-free solutions by integrating the LP360™ panel plug directly into your device’s housing.
The numerous electronic devices body-worn by soldiers all need to be interconnected – and all of them are currently independently powered.
One of the many needs that Fischer Connectors is now fulfilling with its Fischer Freedom™ technology platform and new connectivity solutions is to build an “intelligent vest” based on a shared data and power bus with wiring on the inside, one central battery for all, and connectors that work as a hub interface at strategically chosen locations. This keeps the number of cables on the outside of the vest to a minimum, and enables standardization and further miniaturization of the entire electronic ecosystem, with more functionality in smaller devices. Making wearable/IoT devices smaller, smarter and multifunctional is just one of the many ways in which the Fischer Freedom™ technology platform spurs innovation.
