Communications protocol is a system of digital message formats and rules for exchanging messages in or between computing systems and in telecommunications. A protocol may have a formal description. Protocols may include signaling, authentication, and error detection and correction capabilities. The first part of this document provides an overview of the most relevant parameters that determine whether a connector and/or a cable assembly can withstand a defined data protocol. The second part shows the performances of the Fischer MiniMax™ Series and the Fischer UltiMate™ Series cabled connectors according to Ethernet, USB and HDMI protocols.

This paper discusses the performances of a fischer fiberoptic series connector when tested at 1.9 kelvin. The test was performed at cern’s cryogenic facility (sm18) under the eucard-2 transnational access program. It was co-funded by the partners and the ec-capacities-fp7 under grant agreement 312453.

This white paper presents technical guidelines that drive connector development for harsh and corrosive environments. It explains the main factors driving corrosion and how to make the best interconnection choices for a long-lasting and reliable solution in corrosive conditions.

Military organizations throughout the world are working hard to lighten the load that soldiers carry into battle, and are looking at connector and cabling solutions as one place to make improvements. Selecting the wrong connector can be life-threatening. In this paper, Fischer Connectors’ Wim Vanheertum takes a close look at the miniaturization of military connectors, and addresses issues of size, weight and functionality.

The White Paper provides an overview of the technical basics behind sensing over fiber technologies, its main applications and the cabling solutions involved. The main purpose is to discuss the key factors that will help you define the best solution for your cabling needs, in order to have the most reliable and easy-to-maintain system that reduces your maintenance operations.

This white paper is intended to give our customers best practices in the treatment of contaminated parts and provides guidelines and resources on what level of decontamination can be achieved using a defined decontamination protocol. The first part of this document provides an overview of the most relevant parameters that will define if a connector or/and a cable assembly can withstand a defi ned decontamination protocol. The second part presents the performances (decontamination levels) that Fischer Core Series Stainless Steel achieved using a recommended decontamination protocols.

The Internet of Things has been getting more than its share of publicity in the consumer world lately. The concept of devices making their own decisions based on free flowing data from other devices has been fully embraced by engineers developing instrumentation and industrial applications. This trend, coupled with the move toward smaller and smarter devices, challenges design engineers to examine how leveraging the newest interconnect technology helps them build smaller and smarter instrumentation devices.

Rugged connectors are essential for applications that have to withstand extreme conditions. This document provides the ten most frequently asked questions about this type of connecting solutions. It covers topic such as sealing, sterilization, cable assemblies and all other necessary key features of rugged connectors and will assist engineers to choose the right rugged connector for their device.

Fiber optics infrastructures have become quite common in a number of markets and applications. In conjunction with this fiber infrastructure are a variety of fiber interconnect solutions. Clean, reliable optical connectors are paramount in providing a reliable, high performance fiber infrastructure. This paper addresses the importance of cleaning and maintaining these optical connectors for optimal performance & reliability. The paper also addresses new approaches to rugged fiber optic connectors to simplify the field-cleaning and inspection process.

Broadcast connectors can link so much more than a television camera to a signal transmitting device for a TV show. This article shows an overview of the various connectivity needs in the audio-video market and any other application directly linked to broadcasting television and movie productions where high performance reliable connectors play a key role.
