    ODU AMC - Advanced Military Connectors

    Push-Pull locking or Break-Away function Easy-Clean version with spring loaded contacts for fast and easy

    cleaning at the battle field Extremely robust and rugged Light weight, small and easy handling (blind mating) Color keying, optimized mechanical keying Excellent shielding features:360 Water tight - Protection classIP68 Excellent data transmission Individual contact configuration: signals, low/high voltage transmission, coax/ triax, fiber optic, compressed air and fluid Inserts are possible in one connector Long service life up to 5,000 mating cycles Operating temperature range from-55C up to+125C System solution incl. cable assembly and over molding version for mating under load possible

  • Miniaturization in the Military

    Maintaining a lightweight design is extremely important when dealing with portable units. Some connectors provide a weight savings of up to 75% compared to standard connectors.

    - Wim Vanheertum, Product Manager Fischer Connectors SA

  • Miniaturization in the Military

    Considerations include making sure the miniature connector is not so small or dicult to use that soldiers cant manage to connect or disconnect when wearing gloves.

  • Miniaturization in Medical Smaller, more portable devices, along with an increase in body-worn medical devices, drives demand for miniature and/or multi-functional connector solutions.

  • Miniaturization in Instrumentation

    Sealing to IP68 is a challenge when it comes to miniature connectors, but it can be done, allowing even the most sensitive instruments to remain accurate in extreme conditions.

  • Miniaturization Challenges

    . Challenge Action

    Miniature connectors arent rugged enough for application, or cannot be sealed to IP specications

    Keep looking. There are companies that specialize in rugged miniature connectors that can withstand extreme environments and/or frequent connects and disconnects.

    Sourcing the right cable for a dense connector solution that is multi-functional.

    Check with your connector partner to get cable recommendations. Look for an authorized assembly house to help.

    Right-sizing: Sometimes a connector can be too small to be practical for its intended use.

    Be sure to eld test with gloves if necessary before commioing to a connector.

    Integrating signal and data into a miniature connector may lead to electrical interference.

    Make sure you are working with companies that understand shielding and how it works in miniature connectors.

  • Miniaturization of Connectors EMI / EMC Impact

    Less material = Less shielding Multiple sleeves

    Smaller = BeDer for RF At higher frequencies

  • Lower Your Total Cost of Ownership

    A well-chosen miniature, dense connector can replace more than one standard connector, saving space on the device, investment in materials, and even make a beoer end user experience.
