Lightweight Aluminum Connectors Take Military Punishment

A precision engineered connector series is designed specifically for military, energy, alternative energy, industrial automation, performance automotive and other harsh-environment applications that require robust performance. These M Series twist-lock, lightweight aluminum connectors are aimed at applications 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 connectors offer a ratchet-locking, screw-coupling system that enables quick and secure mating of the connectors for high-vibration environments. With a low-luster gun-metal finish, the connectors are watertight to 2 meters for 15 hours (IP68). Plugs come with two grip designs: a standard knurl grip or an arctic grip to allow secure mating while wearing gloves. Receptacle styles include jam-nut or flange panel mount with crimp contacts, PCB pins, or in-line cable mount shells. All connectors are identified with a laser-engraved part number and production batch number to ensure complete traceability from the raw materials. 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. LEMO SA, Ecublens, Switzerland. (++41 21) 695 16 00.
