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.
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.

Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
