Fischer MiniMax 24-Pin Socket
The Fischer MiniMax 24-pin socket is a high-density miniature solution with a unique combination of power and signal contacts.
Fischer Connectors announced its new 24-pin socket version of the Fischer MiniMax Series – an innovative, high-density miniature solution with a unique combination of power and signal contacts, which 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 in 19- and 24-pin socket configurations, giving designers more flexibility, especially where space and weight restrictions play a role.
“In a tough military environment, reliable connections are essential because lives depend on them. With this new rugged, high-density MiniMax pin socket connector, many handheld or body-worn applications can reach the next level of miniaturization, making them more user-friendly to the soldiers or support staff who use them. Soon we’ll add the last missing piece of the puzzle with a new quick-release version,” said Wim Vanheertum, MiniMax product manager at Fischer Connectors.
The pin socket version of the Fischer MiniMax Series is available as a standalone connector or as a complete pre-cabled solution. It is ideal for handheld use as well as in unmanned land- and air-based vehicles, like drones, that often need to capture high-resolution images, sound, or video while braving wind, rain, and shocks. There are numerous other uses in High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) products for civilian and military applications where performance and reliability matter. Other applications include medical and manufacturing instrumentation and testing, where easy handling, precise calibration, and access to multiple protocols via a single connector are important.
The 24-pin configuration is available with four power and 20 signal contacts, whereas the 19 pin configuration features four power and 15 signal contacts, with the ability to increase the number of power contacts depending on the cable used. Within the signal contacts, there is the option of two advanced contacts for USB power connections.
The Fischer MiniMax Series is available in three latching systems – push-pull, screw-lock, and quick-release.
