Fischer Connectors, a worldwide leader in push-pull circular connectors and cable assembly solutions, recently introduced the new pin socket version of the innovative Fischer MiniMax™ Series to the United States at the MD&M show in Anaheim, CA.

This innovative, first-to-market, high density miniature solution has a unique combination of power and signal contacts, enables more functionality in smaller devices, and lowers the total cost of ownership. With this product range extension, the Fischer MiniMax™ Series is now available both in 19 and 24 pin configurations, giving designers more flexibility, especially where space and weight restrictions play a role.

“In a medical environment, reliable connections are essential because a life is often on the line. With this new reliable high-density MiniMax pin socket connector, many handheld or patient-worn applications can be taken to the next level of miniaturization, making them more user-friendly to the medical staff or the patients who use them”, says Wim Vanheertum, MiniMax Product Manager at Fischer Connectors.

The pin socket version of the Fischer MiniMax™ Series is available as standalone connector, can be mounted on a flex or cabled by users, or supplied as a complete pre-cabled solution.

While the original 24 pin configuration is available with 4 power and 20 signal contacts, the new 19 pin configuration of the Fischer MiniMax™ Series features 4 power and 15 signal contacts as standard, with the unique possibility of increasing the number of power contacts, depending on the cable used. Within the signal contacts, there are 2 advanced contacts for USB power connections as an available option.

The Fischer MiniMax™ Series is available in three latching systems: push-pull, screw lock and quick release. The most important specifications are as follows:

  • Small profile: less than 7mm inside the box
  • Sealed IP68 (2m/24h), both mated and unmated
  • Unbreakable keying system withstands over 4 Nm of torque
  • Over-molded assemblies able to withstand 40 kg of pull (break-away) force
