8 videos: Fischer Freedom™ is rugged – tested and proven
The multiple award-winning Fischer LP360™ 7-pin connector in metal is innovative AND reliable: it has undergone stringent and thorough testing and qualification.

Fischer Connectors’ solutions are recognized worldwide for their ruggedness and durability. For the first time, we show through eight short videos some of the mechanical and environmental tests that our products undergo to prove their compliance with the highest reliability and quality standards. These homemade videos simply describe the testing processes conducted in our laboratory, as well as two demonstrations given “in the field”.

The videos include six standard tests conducted on the Fischer LP360™ 7-pin connector (the first product in the Fischer Freedom™ Series) in the testing laboratory of Fischer Connectors’ headquarters in Saint-Prex, Switzerland. In two field applications, we also show how the connector behaves in water and how easily its plug and receptacle can be cleaned.
