Rugged connector has pin socket version Andy Pratt December 5, 2014 Components & Hardware, Wearable Continuing the trend of miniaturisation, Fischer Connector has introduced the MiniMax in 19- and 24pin configurations, giving designers more flexibility, especially where space and weight restrictions play a role. The connector is suitable for handheld or body-worn applications, for instrumentation and for test equipment where user-friendliness and easy handling are a must. The pin socket version of the MiniMax series is available as standalone connector, able to be mounted on a flex or cabled by the users, or as a complete pre-cabled solution. While the 24pin configuration is available with four power and 20 signal contacts, the 19pin configuration of the MiniMax will feature four power and 15 signal contacts as standard, with the possibility to increase the number of power contacts depending on the cable used. Within the signal contacts, there are two advanced contacts for USB power connections as available option. There are three latching systems: push-pull, screw lock and quick release. It has an unbreakable keying system, says the company, able to withstand over 4Nm of torque. The over-moulded assemblies withstand 40kg of pull (break-away) force. http://www.fischerconnectors.com/minimax WEARTECHDESIGN.COM – Latest News/Advice on Technology for Wearable Devices Weartechdesign is unlike any other website currently serving the technology for wearable devices.
