Fischer Connectors is a leader in push-pull connectors and cable assembly solutions. Logistics and on time deliveries are vital to the success of projects, and to that end Fischer Connectors has put lean manufacturing and efficient processes in place to help fulfill this demand. Fischer Connectors’ primary design and manufacturing facilities are located in Saint-Prex, Switzerland, with subsidiaries and distributors located worldwide.
A new trend in connectors for marine technology applications is the use of fiber optic connectors. As increased bandwidth, more data and better quality audio/video is demanded, the use of fiber optics in these applications has grown rapidly.
When looking to invest in fiber optics it is necessary to understand the role that cleaning plays in the application at hand, and learn the best methods of cleaning their particular connector especially when fiber optics will be mated/unmated in rugged conditions.
It is this usually lengthy and detailed cleaning process that may contribute to slower-than-expected fiber optic growth in rugged field conditions. However, attention paid to new connector design will reduce the time required and difficulty in cleaning. With a rugged, sealed connector, field cleaning is simplified by rinsing with any clean, available water source, and drying the ferrules with clean canned air. This approach only applies to connectors sealed to IP67/68 standards where water intrusion is eliminated. The water wash can be done in the field to remove dirt around the outside and inside of connectors without fear of introducing additional contaminants.

vessels, fishing, and naval defense. At the heart of an iXBlue INS lies a fiber-optic gyroscope (FOG). A FOG uses optical waves propagating in a fiber optic coil to accurately measure a rotational rate. As a FOG is a completely passive device with no mechanical dithering, sealed cavity or high-voltage
connectors, which have to withstand pressure differential due to having an atmospheric-pressure internal cavity. Smaller systems benefit from fiber optics. More compact, lighter, highly modular subsea drilling and production systems are the order of the day. They are easier and less expensive to install
