Range lighter than typical metal connectors

Fischer has announced that its AluLite connector range is around 50 per cent lighter than typical metal connectors. It is suitable for mobile equipment, portable systems and hand-held devices. Available in a wide range of colours, the connectors integrate with product designs, while also offering a flexible colour-coding system. Apt for frequent connect / disconnect operations, the plugs and receptacles are engineered to endure more than 5,000 mating cycles within a temperature range of -50 to 150C.

Accepting cable diameters from 1.4 to 10.7mm, the AluLite series is available in multipole from two to 27 pins, with solder, PCB or crimp contacts and, upon request, in coax, triax or hybrid contact configurations.
