Fischer Connectors has extended its UltiMate flagship series of ultra-rugged and harsh-environment connectors with two new products. They include the Fischer UltiMate 80, a field-ready NATO STANAG 4695-compatible connector and a standard Fischer UltiMate connector available in size 15 with various pin layouts of up to 27 signal and power contacts.

The Fischer UltiMate 80 connector, intermateable with other NATO STANAG 4695 connectors, is available in two layouts featuring six or seven signal and power contacts (size 08) with up to AWG 22. The lightweight (2.7 g) and IP68-sealed connectors target harsh environments, particularly in defense and security applications and soldier modernization programs. The connector meets MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-202.

Fischer's new UltiMate connector seriesThe UltiMate 80 connector offers high resistance to corrosion (500 h salt mist), high shock (100 G) and vibration (random vibration testing to 7.7 Grms), up to 10,000 mating cycles for the plug/5,000 for the receptacle, and cable bending resistance of +/-45° for 5000 cycles. The operating temperature range is -55°C to 135°C. The connector is available as a pre-cabled plug, and a pre-cabled and/or panel receptacle. It provides triple key coding and is rated for IP68 2m/24h.

The Fischer UltiMate connector in size 15 meets special power and high-speed data requirements with a variety of contact layouts (2, 4, 8, 4+12 or 27 signal and power contacts).

The Fischer UltiMate Series connectors are used in field operations in extreme environments. Environmentally sealed to resist extreme shocks and vibrations, these connectors are suited to interconnect devices, equipment, hubs, and embedded electronic systems in defense and security, industrial, instrumentation, marine and underwater, as well as robotics and unmanned vehicle applications.
