Nine new products now add to the capability of the Fischer FreedomTM Series to serve as a technology platform in connectivity setting new standards in usability, integration capability and versatility. An innovation enabler in application design, particularly in terms of SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) requirements, cable management optimization, electronic network integration and wearable technology.
The new features, new configurations, new materials and new active devices, commercially available as of September 2019, use the versatile and modular connectivity technology of the Fischer LP360TM connector, the first product of the plug & use Fischer FreedomTM Series launched in 2018 (cf. top of photo below):
- No key code and non-magnetic quick-release locking for easy 360° mating
- Membrane-sealed contacts for easy cleaning
- Easy integration thanks to low-profile design and ergonomics
Fischer FreedomTM enables design engineers to integrate more technology and functionality into fixed or wearable ecosystems and cable-free devices in markets such as: defense & security, medical, instrumentation, industrial and civil engineering, robotics, wearables, the Internet of Things (IoT), etc.
The new USB 2.0 adaptor, LED and flash drive have the Fischer LP360TM panel plug directly integrated into their housing. This opens up new development pathways for innovative active solutions integrated into electronic networks where power source and communications are centralized within shared data & power buses and hubs. As for the new cabled receptacle in metal with 7 signal and power contacts, it is a ready-to-use solution that also maximizes the usability, operability and functionality of robotic systems or smart vests into which it can easily be integrated. These solutions are ideally used in applications for portable and body-worn “wearables”, among others, for the so-called “connected human” – a huge trend in the connectivity sector –, as well as in IoT applications.
Fischer Connectors Group’s CEO Jonathan Brossard says:
“Fischer FreedomTM is more than a traditional connector product line. It is a real technology platform which also enables innovations in active solutions with the goal, among others, to maximize the usability, interoperability and multifunctionality of electronic devices and ecosystems. I’m extremely proud that our Product Development and R&D teams have been able to launch such a variety of new products at the same time. They demonstrate our capacity to deliver reliable and versatile connectivity solutions that create innovation synergies in diverse markets.”
