Astute offers watertight connectors with IP68 sealing

Watertight, small diameter, push-pull connectors from LEMO in the T series, are now available from Astute Electronics.

The connector design is rated to IP68 to provide reliable performance in environments requiring ruggedised equipment and a watertight connection, says the company, including defence systems, security systems, test & measurement and medical.

The company’s Push-Pull technology is used for the connectors, with a special construction of an inner sleeve and extra sealing to enable IP68 water protection when mated. Two to 16 contact configurations are available, with solder, PCB or crimp contacts. A keying system is claimed to ensure correct connector alignment with multiple key options to avoid cross-mating of multiple connections. The connector outer shell offers 360 degree EMC shielding.

The connectors are backwards compatible with the company’s B series, with the same contact system and configurations, with a selection of options that can be made available quickly. The series has the same socket panel-hole diameter as the B series.

The connector outer shell is available in standard matt chrome finish or black chrome finish, making the product suitable for defence systems such as aircraft communications, land vehicles, night-vision equipment, simulation or personal battle equipment, and wherever environmental conditions require ruggedised equipment.
