Fischer Connectors, Fischer UltiMate Series: New Field-Ready Solutions for Unparalleled Functionality and Ruggedness in Extreme Environments

Fischer Connectors Ultimate 80 and size 15 200x90mm 300dpi

The global connectivity solution provider Fischer Connectors has extended its flagship series of ultra-rugged
and harsh-environment connectors with two new products: the Fischer UltiMateTM 80, a field-ready NATO
STANAG 4695-compatible connector offering unparalleled functionality and ruggedness in comparison with
similar harsh-environment quick-release connectors; and the standard Fischer UltiMateTM connector now
available in size 15 with various pin layouts of up to 27 signal and power contacts.

Intermateable with other NATO STANAG 4695 connectors, the field-ready Fischer UltiMateTM 80 connector
comes in two layouts featuring 6 or 7 signal and power contacts (size 08) with up to AWG 22. Engineered in
Switzerland, it offers an ultra-rugged, lightweight and IP68-sealed connectivity solution for any harsh
environment, especially for defense & security applications and soldier modernization programs. Its design is
exceptionally rugged by any market standards and compliant with MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-202, providing
environmental and mechanical performance and endurance that outperform by far other suppliers’ similar
connectors:

• Ruggedness: high resistance to corrosion (500h salt mist), up to 10,000 mating cycles for the plug / 5,000
for the receptacle, random vibration 7.7 Grms, shock resistant (100 G), cable bending resistance (+/-90° for
5000 cycles), temperature (-55 °C to +135 °C), triple key coding
• Light weight: housing material in aluminum: 2,7 g
• Environmental sealing: connector Ingress Protection mated and unmated: IP68 sealing 2m/24h.

The Fischer UltiMateTM 80 connector comes as a pre-cabled plug, and a pre-cabled and/or panel receptacle.

As for the new Fischer UltiMateTM connector in size 15, it meets special power and high-speed data
requirements for further design and technology developments with various contact layouts (2, 4, 8, 4+12 or
27 signal and power contacts).

These new connectors are part of the world-renowned rugged, compact, and lightweight Fischer UltiMateTM
Series used to ruggedize technology for field operations in extreme environments. Environmentally sealed to
resist extreme shocks and vibrations, these durable and reliable connectors are ideal to interconnect
devices, equipment, hubs and embedded electronic systems where weight matters, for example in defense &
security, industrial, instrumentation, marine & underwater, as well as robotics and unmanned vehicles.

The Fischer UltiMateTM connectors’ resin-sealed contact block offers extreme sealing (up to IP68 / IP69 even
unmated, gastight, CBRN decontamination), high shock and vibration resistance, as well as superior cable
resistance in terms of traction.
