Astute Electronics adds LEMO’s IP-rated connector families

Component supplier, Astute Electronic, has signed a franchise agreement with LEMO, the Swiss manufacturer of precision connectors.

Products such as the M series, claimed to be the smallest, multi-pin, shielded, vibration-secure and sealed connector available, has been added to the distributor’s portfolio. It offers a lightweight connection with high pin-count density, 360 degree EMC shielding protection. There is also the lightweight, high temperature F series, targeting the defence, autosport and other harsh markets. Additionally, the T series is an update of the manufacturer’s B series, with a higher contact density and IP68 rating.

For the supplier’s defence business, it adds the NiCorAl surface treatment. This finish is a specially formulated Nickel Teflon finish in Anthracite dark grey and has been developed particularly for the aluminium alloy bodied M series ratchet coupling range of connectors. These are a smaller alternative to MIL 38999 connectors, says the company. Fully tested according to AECTP 300 / MIL-STD-810 / MIL-STD-202 standards, the aluminium-bodied connectors have passed the 500 hour salt spray test target; brass-bodied models have achieved 1000+ hours. The finish satisfies the requirements of both RoSH2 and the forthcoming REACH 2017 regulations.
