Fischer Connectors, the global provider of ultra-reliable and high-performance connectivity solutions, continues to push the boundaries of innovation in rugged miniaturization, high-speed data transmission, sealing, wearability and the Internet of Things (IoT). At UBM’s annual MD&M West show in Anaheim, the company showcases how it is reimagining connectivity with its customers thanks to breakthrough and forward-looking products and its new technological partnership with Wearable Technologies Ltd. that spans multiple industries.

Fischer Connectors will formally introduce the new Fischer Freedom™ Series connector to the medical market this year at MD&M West.  This breakthrough connector will revolutionize how medical device manufacturers approach wearable device design, due to its unique configuration allowing 360 degree connectivity and freedom of movement.

The Fischer Freedom™ Series has already won two prestigious design and engineering awards:  Design Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Award at the Platinum level.  The Freedom connectivity solution is currently available in a seven-pin configuration, with a plastic version and a miniature four-pin version due to be released later this year.

The entire product portfolio of Fischer Connectors showcased in its booth #1658 also includes the new configurations of the ultra-miniature signal & power Fischer MiniMax™ Series compliant with the latest data protocols USB 3.0, Ethernet and HDMI. In addition, the company will be showcasing brass, plastic and disposable configurations from the Fischer Core Series designed specifically for medical applications.
