Fischer LP360 wearable connector

Thursday, 14 June, 2018 | Supplied by: Electus Distribution

The Fischer LP360, the first product in the Fischer Freedom Series, meets design engineers’ needs for connecting portable and body-worn applications quickly and easily, due to three breakthrough technology innovations: 360° mating ‘freedom’; a ball-locking mechanism with sealing and variable predefined force; and specially designed pins on the plug that are IP68 sealed with a membrane.

The series facilitates integration, maximises usability and optimises cable management for a wide variety of applications within markets such as defence, security, medical, industrial and civil engineering. Mating the product becomes as intuitive as buttoning up a vest, without compromising on the high-performance reliability required in harsh environments.

The connector is fully cleanable (both plug and receptacle) and is easy to use and maintain with a fast set-up and good durability. The series also meets users’ needs to easily and seamlessly integrate connectors — with or without cables — into multifunctional portable or body-worn devices.

Due to its compact and low-profile design, the device is easy to integrate into clothing with devices and subsystems; via the panel-mounted plug interface, cables can even be removed completely, and the connector can be directly integrated into the housing of such devices as a camera, a sensor, a light or a GPS.

As the product has no key code, it can be plugged and routed in any direction, ensuring that the cable can always go straight to the device. No more twists and turns means shorter cables in the equipment body-worn by dismounted soldiers, healthcare professionals or patients, civil engineers, surveyors and operators, and law enforcement officers and security guards. In certain applications, the need for cable can be eliminated completely.

The series enables design engineers to build an intelligent vest that works as a hub with multiple portable and body-worn devices connected to a shared data and power bus. Clutter is reduced and usability increased, making equipment light and quick to set up. These benefits also open up further opportunities in the Internet of Things (IoT).
