Original Press Release

New! LEMO® Announces the T Series - Watertight Connector

Press release date: May 04, 2015

ROHNERT PARK, Calif., -- LEMO, a global leader in the design and manufacture of precision custom connection solutions has recently announced a new watertight connector series, the T Series, and will be demonstrating this new connector series at the AUVSI Show, May 5-7, Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Booth #3011.  Northwire, Inc., a LEMO Group Company and manufacturer of wire and cable, will also be joining LEMO in the AUVSI booth demonstrating their latest technology in wire and cable products. 

The T Series Connector offers a new innovative design for the defense/security, test & measurement, medical and any other market/application that requires a watertight connection.  The T Series Connector is a small sized watertight connector using the same original LEMO Push-Pull technology. Based on the LEMO B Series, the T Series Connector includes a special construction with an inner-sleeve and extra sealing to enable IP68 water protection.  The T Series is available in 2- to 32- contact configurations. Contacts can be terminated by soldering to the wire, crimping onto the wire, or directly to a PCB. A keying system ensures correct connector alignment and the connector outershell offers full EMI shielding.

The T Series utilizes the proven high-performance contact system and configurations from the highly popular LEMO B Series range, providing a very wide selection of options that can be made available quickly. T Series plugs are backwardly compatible with the B Series receptacles (IP50).  The T Series receptacles fit the same receptacle panel-hold diameter as the B Series, which will be a benefit to customers wanting to upgrade their existing designs.

The connector outershell is available in black-chrome finish or plated brass,  making the product ideal for defense systems such as aircraft communi­cations, land vehicles, night-vision equipment, simulation or personal battle equipment, as well as in the test & measurement and other industries wherever the environmental conditions require ruggedized equipment. 

The T Series catalog can be found at: http://www.lemo.com/catalog/ROW/UK_English/T_series_en.pdf - Please note that additional T Series sizes (accommodating higher pin counts) will be available soon.
