  1. How Connectors Perform In Harsh Corrosive Environments
    8/11/2017

    It is important to understand the main factors driving corrosion, and how to make the best interconnection choices for a long-lasting and reliable solution. This white paper discusses the key factors in selecting the best connectivity options for even the most robust and corrosive application environments.

  2. Testing Fischer Fiber Optic Connectors At Cryogenic Temperatures
    8/9/2017

    Fischer Connectors tested the performance of a Fischer Fiber Optic Series connector at 1.9 Kelvin at CERN’s cryogenic facility (SM18) under the EuCARD-2 Transnational Access program. The test objective was to measure the robustness of the connector in the cryogenic environment. The Fischer connector was lined inside the sealed cryostat with the outside environment, and temperature was slowly reduced in the cryostat, cooling the helium inside to superfluid helium phase at 1.9 K.
