M Series Rugged Connectors
COTS Rugged Connectors for Harsh Environments
The LEMO M Series connector range has been designed specifically as a COTS solution for military, robotics, aerospace, Unmanned Aerial Systems and other demanding environment applications. Featuring a triple-start micro ratchet coupling and a rugged high-strength aluminium construction, the M Series is a superior alternative to MIL-38999 connectors, offering a smaller, lighter and more compact package.
Insert configurations are available from 2 up to 114 contacts, and high-current contacts and mixed-size configurations are available should your solution require power over LAN, three-phase power, or mixed high and low signals. A wide variety of shell design options can be chosen from, including fixed-panel, in-line plus and sockets, and MIL backshells.
The M Series has been tested to a variety of Mil-specs (including EIA 364 and MIL-STD 810), resulting in a high-quality, rugged product that is highly resistant to vibration, lightning, gunfire, chemical corrosion and a vast array of other harsh conditions found in a military or UAS environment. All M Series connectors are sealed to IP68 when mated and offer 360 degree screening for full EMC shielding.

T Series Connectors
Watertight, Low-Voltage Push-Pull Connectors
LEMO’s T Series connectors are specifically designed for outdoor applications. They include an inner sleeve and seals to prevent penetration of solids or liquids. The T Series is watertight when mated to give a protection index of IP68 as per IEC 60529 standard.
T Series connectors feature a push-pull self-latching system, mechanical key with multiple keys to avoid cross-mating, and 360° full EMC shielding.
Multipole connectors are available with 2 to 32 solder, crimp or print contacts, for cables 1.0 mm up to 10.5 mm. All T- Series connectors are compatible with existing LEMO B Series sockets, and black-chrome plated brass connectors with a plastic outer shell are available.
K Series Connectors
Ruggedized Push-Pull Connectors
The K Series connector range offers a rugged watertight construction suitable for a multitude of outdoor applications. Sealed to IP68 in both plug and socket when mated, the connectors latch together with a push-pull mechanism, providing a highly secure connection.
Lemo’s K Series Ruggedized Connectors
The connectors are keyed, with nine different options for alignment, thus reducing the risk of unwanted cross-mating within a panel. Multipole insert configurations are available from 2 to 64 contacts, and specialised or hybrid contact options include high voltage, fibreoptic and coaxial.

F Series Connectors
Compact, High Performance Push-Pull Connectors
The F Series range was designed to meet the need for a watertight yet compact and lightweight connector, for use in Motorsport, Military and Aerospace applications. The aluminium alloy body is highly resistant to vibration and shock, and connectors are sealed to IP67 when mated.
Connector dimensions are considerably smaller than comparable MIL spec connectors, and combined with a high contact density this makes for a considerable space saving.
The connectors have a push-pull self-latching mechanism, with 4 different keying configurations available. Multipole insert configurations are available from 2 to 68 contacts, and mixed contact options include fibreoptic and LV.
