The connector’s plug & use technology also benefits end users. Its unique combination of sealed, blind-mate and non-magnetic quick-release locking mechanism with pre-defined force allows for 360-degree mating freedom (no key code). And thanks to a unique sealing technique through a membrane, the plug is also IP68 sealed, making both plug and receptacle easy to clean, and protecting the whole connector from water, dust and sand.
Since its launch and within a single year, the Fischer LP360TM connector has won two “Best Product of the Year” awards in 2019, and two Innovation awards in 2018. The whole concept of its design is now protected by a patent in the U.S., and we expect more countries to follow soon. More patents on specific parts of this product are pending.
For this solution to meet reliability and quality standards even in harsh environments, Fischer Connectors’ R&D team had to be inventive during the entire development of the product – a product that serves as an enabler for future technological development. On the occasion of this 1st patent granting, we warmly congratulate and thank everybody in our expert teams who worked tirelessly on the development of this product in close collaboration with our customers.
