ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Fischer Connectors in Alpharetta, Ga., is introducing extensions to the company's ultra-dense Fischer MiniMax rugged connector series for aerospace and defense applications like unmanned vehicles.

The new connectors offer high-speed AWG24 Ethernet data transfer; enhanced IP68 sealing down to 20m/24h; hexagonal body style; anthracite coating.

A new contact block configuration of eight AWG24 pins in a receptacle of 12 millimeters diameter enables fast Ethernet data transmission over long distances. The new configuration can help move Ethernet connectivity into more rugged environments, protected from the elements with enhanced IP68 ratings.

Fischer is increasing the depth that the Fischer MiniMax series connectors can achieve safely, providing enhanced reliability for extreme environments.

The IP68 sealing level ensures MiniMax connectors and cable assembly solutions can be submerged as deeply as 20 meters for 24 hours for the miniaturization of underwater devices.

The Fischer MiniMax series receptacles also come in a hexagonal body style for integration into small housings. The anthracite surface treatment is non-reflective and stealthy.
