It has been announced that LEMO connectors has enhanced its range of Halo connectors with additional product sizes and models. Initially launched in the B series, this product is now also available in the T series, a watertight IP68 connector. This new product range, configurable through the embedded electronics, features a wide range of colours with a RGB indicator arranged in a ring around the connector.
The three different designs are called LEG, LMG (with a standby light) and LNG (with a narrow ring shape light).
What information can be displayed by the Halo LEDs? It is for the customer to decide before adding the connector to his equipment. The indicator can be configured as required: status (on/off or blinking), light intensity and of course colours.
The multiplexed indicator consisting of red, green and blue LEDs, you simply combine the pulse width modulations (PWM) of each colour in order to generate the colour of your choice out of among 16 million shades of colour. The indicator’s behaviour can also be modified at a later stage, via software, providing maximum flexibility.
