These high-density miniature connectors are showcased among other innovative defense & security solutions aimed at making soldiers’ equipment smaller, lighter and smarter.
Miniaturization, ultra-resistance, and fiber optics are growing trends in military and security technology. Equipment manufacturers worldwide face the growing challenge of how to protect soldiers and support staff, while making them more agile, effective and connected. At the DSEI (Stand S4-120), visitors can discover our latest connectivity solutions that reduce soldiers’ fighting load and power requirements, yet improve their protection, effectiveness, and environmental and situational awareness.
The Fischer MiniMax™ Series connectors are perfectly suited for applications when density, signal & power, and size matter. Ideal for hand-held or body-worn applications, they’re also suitable for unmanned land- and air-based vehicles, and High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) products. Their unique combination of power and signal contacts enables multiple cables to be replaced with only one. This increases functionality in smaller devices, and lowers the total cost of ownership. With this product range extension, MiniMax is now available as a standalone connector, or as a complete pre-cabled solution, in both in 19 and 24 pin socket configurations. The 24 pin configuration has 4 power and 20 signal contacts. Within the signal contacts, there is the option of two advanced contacts for USB power connections. There is also a choice of three latching systems: push-pull, screw lock and the brand new quick release.
“It’s exciting to reach the next level of miniaturization, making the Fischer MiniMax™ Series even easier to use. We’ve just added the last missing piece of the puzzle with the new quick release version. The MiniMax 24 QR connectors can be plugged and unplugged quickly and easily, even with one hand or wearing gloves, which is essential when you need to move fast”, says Wim Vanheertum, MiniMax Product Manager at Fischer Connectors.
