Push-pull connectors offer full 360 degree EMC shielding
The LEMO T Series of watertight small diameter push-pull connectors is now available from Astute Electronics. The connector is a new innovative design, rated to IP-68 to provide reliable performance in environments requiring ruggedised equipment and a watertight connection, including defence systems, security systems, test & measurement, medical and many others.
Based on the LEMO B Series, the T Series connector uses the same original LEMO Push-Pull technology, but includes a special construction with an inner sleeve and extra sealing to enable IP68 water protection when mated.
It is available in 2- to 16 contact configurations and available with solder, PCB or crimp contacts. A further benefit of the T Series is a keying system to ensure correct connector alignment with multiple key options to avoid cross-mating of multiple connections.
The connector outer shell offers full 360 degree EMC shielding.
Gary Evans, E-Mech Divisional Manager, Astute comments: “The LEMO T Series offers customers the same proven high performance contact system and configurations from the well-regarded and popular LEMO B Series range, with a very wide selection of options that can be made available quickly. A further advantage of the T Series is its backward compatibility with the B Series. It has the same socket panel-hole diameter as the B Series, which will be a considerable benefit to customers wanting to upgrade their existing designs as there is no need to change front panel dimensions, and upgraded cable plug assemblies will work with existing designs.”
The connector outer shell is available in standard LEMO matt chrome finish or black chrome finish, making the product ideal for defence systems such as aircraft communications, land vehicles, night-vision equipment, simulation or personal battle equipment, as well as in the test & measurement and other industries wherever the environmental conditions require ruggedised equipment.
