Weald Electronics, a major UK manufacturer of electrical connectors and accessories, offers a wide range of connectors for demanding environments including defence equipment, avionics, marine and naval equipment, medical systems, industrial automation, machine building, test and measurement, high performance communications systems, and instrumentation.

The Weald LMH range of bayonet coupling connectors provide a cost-effective combination of price, size, weight, contact size, robustness, and reliable quick-connect and are designed to perform to the requirements of MIL-DTL-26482 (previously MIL-C-26482) Series 1 and Patt 105. LMH series connectors are also manufactured to IECQ-CECC spec BS/CECC 75201-003 and BS 9522 F0017.

LMH connectors are available for signal and power applications and are manufactured with bonded insulators and contacts that are 100% pressure-tested during assembly to provide a reliable environmental seal even when unmated.

Key features of the Weald LMH connectors include:

  • Nine shell sizes and 25 shell styles
  • Contact arrangements from two to 61 ways,
  • Maximum current rating of 45A
  • Peak working voltages up to 1,500V – DC or AC.
  • Accessories include J sealing glands, protective caps, and screen termination.

Standard LMH connector shells are made from aluminium alloy with a choice of high corrosion resistance plating finishes including the popular RoHS compliant nickel or black zinc nickel and, predominantly for defence applications, olive drab and RoHS compliant zinc cobalt finishes may be specified.

Weald Electronics manufactures a variety of accessories to complete its LMH range offering. These include LMA19 series backshells and LMD series LMD series protective caps  designed and made to the same very high standards.

Standard LMH connectors are generally available from stock on a next-day delivery basis with no minimum quantity or order value. For those with an application that needs a custom connector solution, Weald can design and assemble LMH specials to a customer’s exact specification on short lead times.

Weald Electronics is a UK connector manufacturer with more than 40 years of experience in the design, manufacture, and testing of high-performance connector systems for demanding applications as well as a wide range of accessories including sealing, and strain relief backshells.
