LEMO USA's LEMO M Series Connector

LEMO USA's LEMO M Series Connector

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.
