#rugged #IP68 #nonmagnetic #matingcycles #usability #reliability #FischerFreedom #FischerLP360
Per i suoi magnetometri, SENSYS era alla ricerca di un connettore ultra robusto idoneo all’uso continuativo sul campo, che non presentasse i limiti dei connettori conformi agli standard militari (MIL). La tecnologia “plug-and-use” del Fischer LP360™ ha soddisfatto tutti i requisiti. Maneggevole e al contempo non soggetto a uso scorretto, resistente a vento e condizioni meteo avverse, facile da pulire e amagnetico.
 
Multi-tasking connectivity

Hybrid connectors: Smaller, smarter devices means smaller, smarter connectivity solutions

July 6, 2020
#hybridconnectors #miniaturization #dataspeed #fiberoptic
Do you want your connectors to take up less space and handle a broader range of functions? The most common hybrid combination being sought out by the engineering community is power and signal, and whether it’s all copper or a copper/fiber hybrid solution depends specifically on how much data needs to get through the cable. A few tips from the expert.
 
High sealing level

IP68 sealing for waterproof connectors

June 30, 2020
#IP68 #sealing #waterproof #harshenvironment #marine
When you need a waterproof connector, the choice may not be as straightforward as just choosing an IP68-sealed solution. IP68 ratings can differ – for some, IP68 rated can mean as little as 1 meter for 15 minutes. Fischer Connectors’ solutions offer much higher IP68 sealing levels. And this is a decision-making factor for our customers designing harsh-environment connectivity.
 
FiberOptic 300 m di profondità

Un UUV s’immerge a 300m con il connettore a tenuta stagna IP68 Fischer FiberOptic
