Breakthrough Connectivity Systems Now Easier to Integrate into Portable and Wearable Electronic Ecosystems

Fischer Freedom™ technology platform enables design engineers to integrate more technology and functionality into fixed, portable or wearable devices By DA Editor / 03 Dec 2020

The LP360 range of low-profile, easy-to-mate and fully cleanable connectivity solutions from Fischer Connectors has been extended with new products and accessories that allow design engineers to further optimize cable management in line with their SWaP (size, weight and power) requirements; and integrate low-profile connectors, cable assemblies and active devices easily into all sorts of materials.

The rugged sewing junction of the new Fischer Freedom™ Quick Detach System  allows to easily convert flexible material into a potential panel, e.g., heavy duty tarp cover/tent, sail, vehicle tire blankets, smart backpacks. The system’s adapter and retaining ring facilitate the quick fit and interchange of receptacles.

The new Fischer Freedom™ cabled receptacle in size 08 is a smaller version of the receptacle introduced to the market last year. With a metal housing, four signal and power contact tracks, IP68 sealing and EMI shielding, this new cabled receptacle is ready to use under any conditions, easy to integrate into garments or mount on panels, and quick to fit and remove.

The Fischer Freedom™ technology platform enables design engineers to integrate more technology and functionality into fixed, portable or wearable devices and ecosystems in markets such as: defense & security, medical, instrumentation, industrial and civil engineering, robotics, wearables, the Internet of Things (IoT).

The following two applications recently introduced to the defense and industrial markets show how the unique features of Fischer Freedom™ – easy 360° mating, easy cleaning, easy integration thanks to low-profile design and ergonomics – benefit OEM integrators.

Firstly, Wearin’s connected vest (Platinum 2020 Technology Innovators Award) is a centralized, integrated connectivity system featuring six Fischer Freedom™ 7-contact receptacles fitted using the new Quick Detach System.

Secondly, VRaktion’s design engineers have integrated a Fischer Freedom™ 4-contact receptacle in plastic, into a smart work shoe using an obstacle warning system with laser sensors.
