The M Series Connector is a
precision engineered connector series designed specifically for military,
energy, alternative energy, industrial automation, performance automotive and
other harsh environment applications that require robust performance in a
lightweight compact size. LEMO, known for their original push-pull connector
technology, is now offering this new twist lock, lightweight aluminum connector
series in a smaller compact size to address the needs of the harsh environment
applications. The LEMO M Series Connector has
been uniquely designed for applications that require a durable, yet reduced
weight in a compact solution. This new connector series design was focused on
the designer and/or engineer that require a MIL-38999 type of connector but in
a much smaller and lightweight package, giving up none of the vibration, RFI,
water ingress or corrosion specifications.
The M Series connector family provides full 360 degree shielding and
high shell conductivity to ensure excellent EMI protection. The over-mold
feature provides for additional cable strain and flex relief, for improved
aesthetics and cable mount reliability.
The LEMO M Series has a significant size advantage over the MIL 38999
connectors. For example, LEMO's new
triple-start ratchet M Series size 0M thru 5M provides a connector that is from
20 to 60 percent smaller than the 38999 for the same contact count, providing a
significant reduction in required panel space, and a much lighter solution.
