Product range

Fischer LP360™

The low-profile Fischer LP360™ is a miniaturized active device, a fastening mechanism and an electrical signal and power connection all in one. Serving as a smart network enabler in wearable and IoT ecosystems, it has won multiple innovation awards since its launch in 2018.

Material & surface finish: Metal

Made in high-end metal materials including stainless steel for its housing and locking system, the Fischer LP360™ connector is ultra-robust, resisting extreme temperatures and enduring up to 10,000 mating cycles.

Material & surface finish: Plastic

The Fischer LP360™ connector in plastic is a smaller and lighter solution with high quality and durability standards. Made of a high-end composite based on PEEK, it’s IP67-sealed (mated and unmated) and endures up to 5,000 mating cycles. Up to 70% lighter than the connector in metal, it’s ideal for use in applications where size and weight optimization is paramount.
