LEMO T Series Watertight Connectors

LEMO is demonstrating its new watertight connector series, the T Series, at AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2015 in Atlanta, Booth #3011. Northwire, Inc., a LEMO Group Company and manufacturer of wire and cable, will also be joining LEMO in the AUVSI booth demonstrating their latest technology in wire and cable products.

The T Series Connector offers a new innovative design for the defense/security, test & measurement, medical and any other market/application that requires a watertight connection. The T Series Connector is a small sized watertight connector using the same original LEMO Push-Pull technology. Based on the LEMO B Series, the T Series Connector includes a special construction with an inner-sleeve and extra sealing to enable IP68 water protection. The T Series is available in 2- to 32- contact configurations. Contacts can be terminated by soldering to the wire, crimping onto the wire, or directly to a PCB. A keying system ensures correct connector alignment and the connector outershell offers full EMI shielding.

The T Series utilizes the proven high-performance contact system and configurations from the highly popular LEMO B Series range, providing a very wide selection of options that can be made available quickly. T Series plugs are backwardly compatible with the B Series receptacles (IP50). The T Series receptacles fit the same receptacle panel-hold diameter as the B Series, which will be a benefit to customers wanting to upgrade their existing designs.

The connector outershell is available in black-chrome finish or plated brass, making the product ideal for defense 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 ruggedized equipment.
