LEMO has launched a new connector for inter connection of HD video cameras in professional broadcast industry. The new hybrid connector called 3K.93C.Y series is fully compatible with existing SMPTE and ARIB standard. This recent LEMO design has less components allowing easy assembly and reducing the termination costs for the hybrid fibre optic connector.
This new product has been engineered to be more tolerant of operator variations and therefore performance can be more easily optimised during the termination process. It includes a new contact called the FS fibre contact. In addition, the new insulator is made in two sections and the sideways insertion of the optical contacts prevent any push-back on the optical contacts. No more optical extractor is required to remove these contacts. Finally, the connector can be easily identified with its new shell design and fibre optic contact shape.
