Fischer UltiMate™ Series now available in its smallest 12mm size
Fischer Connectors extends product range for its rugged connectors for harsh environments
St-Prex, Switzerland, 20 November 2013 – Fischer Connectors, a worldwide leader in circular push-pull connectors, extended its product range for the popular Fischer UltiMate™ Series with the introduction of the size 07. This brand new connector is smaller, more compact and lighter than the current range in the Fischer UltiMate™ Series, but has the same performances as the other sizes in the product line and is therefore perfectly suitable for harsh and extreme environments.
The Fischer UltiMate™ Series is already very well-known as connecting solution for applications and devices that have to perform under extreme and harsh conditions. With the size 07 of this product range, Fischer Connectors is able to follow the trend of miniaturization by offering a smaller connector. With a diameter of 14mm, the Fischer UltiMate™ Series 07 is available in a 2 to 9 contact configuration. This allows designers to create smaller devices with more connections and more functions with the same performance.
‘The Fischer UltiMate™ 07 is the answer to the users’ need for a smaller but rugged connector’, states Dominique Glauser, CEO of Fischer Connectors Group. ‘This new extension makes the Fischer UltiMate™ Series complete, as there is a much wider choice now both in sizes and pin configurations.’
The Fischer UltiMate™ Series is sealed IP68/69 mated and unmated and has a high corrosion resistance of 1000 hours. Combined with the 360° EMC shielding, the guaranteed 10,000 mating cycles and an operating temperature from -55°C to +135°C, the connector is the right choice for extreme environment applications because this connecting solution requires less maintenance, is cost effective and slow aging.
The Fischer UltiMate™ Series is now available in five sizes (07, 08, 11, 13 and 18) and in configurations from 2 to 42 pins. Cable assembly solutions are available in both straight and right angle overmolding. For ultimate protection of unmated connectors in the field, soft caps and bend relief are available for all sizes, including a wide range of tools and accessories.
