LEMO is expanding its field-proven M series connectors with the introduction of the HY, a new vacuum tight model designed for unmanned systems applications requiring vacuum tight integrations in harsh environments.
Available in all sizes and low voltage configurations, the HY has an extended temperature range of -55° to +150°C thanks to an innovative potting material. It also integrates optimized PCB tails enabling easier PCB routings even on high density configurations.
The mass connection has also been improved and now offers the possibility to use either standard ground pins or special anti vibrations threaded holes for ‘screw through’ PCB fixation.
The company claims this new addition to its M series lineup provides the highest density ratchet coupling connectors on the market where vacuum tight integrations are required. The ultra low leak rate coupled with a wide temperature range allow for unmatched performances in optical enclosures or high-altitude applications.
