Space saving connectors for military applications

Astute Electronics Ltd : 16 September, 2016  (New Product)
Astute Electronics is now supplying the LEMO F Series connectors for use in space critical defence applications
Space saving connectors for military applications

LEMO F Series connectors designed specifically for demanding applications where space and weight are critical are now available from Astute Electronics.  The LEMO F Series interconnects meet MIL Std 810E, but are far smaller than comparable MIL Spec connectors, enabling dramatic space savings. The use of an aluminium alloy body achieves a low weight for size, yet the LEMO Series is a tough, ruggedized solution able to withstand high shock and vibration and is also IP-67 rated.   

The LEMO F Series features a push pull latching mechanism to provide secure connection, while the contact density enables considerable panel space savings.  Multi-key options prevent cross-mating of similar connectors within a panel. Within the F Series, models are available with 2 to 66 contacts, and contact types include LV and Fibre Optic, plus hybrids, making this a very flexible interconnect solution. F Series connectors are highly durable and can withstand up to 1,000 mating cycles. Crimp and PCB terminations are available. The F Series also offers full EMC protection. Rated to IP67 against dust and water ingress, the LEMO F Series can withstand temperatures between -15degC and +200degC.

Gary Evans, E-Mech Divisional Manager, Astute comments: “The aluminium body and small form factor of LEMO F Series connectors enable designers to achieve greater space and weight savings in autosport, defence, medical, broadcast, communications, test & measurement and other harsh environment applications than would be possible with comparable Mil-Std interconnects, and with the reassurance of outstanding reliability and durability.”
