| 2018

Fischer Connectors, the global connectivity solution provider of high-performance circular connector and cable assemblies, continues to push the boundaries of technological innovation in rugged miniaturization, high-speed data transmission, sealing, and wearability. Committed to making its customers’ lives easier, on 11th June 2018 Fischer Connectors is launching a breakthrough plug & use connectivity technology with its new product line: the Fischer Freedom Series and its first product: the Fischer LP360.

The Fischer Freedom Series revolutionizes wearable connectivity, as it meets design engineers’ urgent needs for designing and connecting portable and body-worn applications quickly and easily, thanks to three breakthrough technology innovations:

• Mating – no key code allows for 3600 mating “freedom”
• Locking – ball-locking mechanism with sealing and
variable pre-defined force (patent pending)
• Materials – specially designed pins on the plug are
IP68 sealed with a membrane (patent pending)

Thanks to these innovations, the Fischer Freedom Series facilitates integration, maximizes usability and optimizes cable management for a wide variety of applications within markets such as defense, security, medical, industrial and civil engineering – to name just a few.

“Our core mission at Fischer Connectors is to make our customers' lives easier with a collaborative approach and tailored connectivity solutions,“ says Jonathan Brossard, Fischer Connectors Group’s CEO. “The creation of the Fischer Freedom Series is evidence that our mission actually strengthens our customers’ abilities to design for their markets. Reimagining connectivity like we’ve shown in the new Fischer Freedom Series allows those customers to turn their ambitious ideas into solutions that fit their world and help them break into new markets as well.”

The Fischer Freedom Series is ideal for a wide variety of portable and body-worn applications within markets such as defense, security, medical, industrial and civil engineering.
The Fischer Freedom Series also makes the life of design engineers easier, as it meets their need to easily and seamlessly integrate connectors – with or without cables – into multifunctional portable or body-worn devices.

The Fischer Freedom Series optimizes cable management with an extremely reliable connectivity ecosystem. As the Fischer LP360 has no key code, it offers 3600 mating “freedom”, meaning it can be plugged and routed in any direction, ensuring that the cable can always go straight to the device. No more twists and turns means shorter cables in the equipment body-worn by dismounted soldiers, healthcare professionals or patients, civil engineers, surveyors and operators, and law enforcement officers and security guards.

The usability as well as the integrability of the Fischer Freedom Series connectivity solutions contribute to making wearable devices smaller, faster and smarter – and, ultimately, to making high-performance and smart clothing a reality.

The Fischer Freedom Series enables design engineers to build an intelligent vest which works as a hub-with multiple portable and body-worn devices connected to a shared data and power bus. Clutter is reduced and usability increased, making equipment lighter and faster to set up. These benefits also open up further opportunities in the Internet of Things (IoT).

The low-profile, rugged and versatile Fischer LP360TM is the first product in the Fischer Freedom Series:

• Signal & power through 7 contacts, up to 24AWG compatible with up to 3x 5A power and 4x 1A signal
with USB 2.0 and Ethernet data protocols
o Receptacle: Panel mount with O-ring sealing, or integration as a wearable solution
o Plug: Easy cabling (up to 24AWG), with or without potting – bend relief or overmolding – panel plug
version for direct integration into the housing of an application

• High-performance reliability
o Robust stainless steel & brass design for longevity (min. 10,000 mating cycles)
o Resistant to shock, vibration, torque and extreme temperatures
o Tested in line with MIL and IEC standards
