Astute offers weight-saving connectors from LEMO
Compact, waterproof LEMO F series connectors from LEMO are available from Astute. They are claimed to deliver space and weight savings for defence and autosport applications and meet Mil-Std 810E and are ruggedised for high vibration and shock environments.
They are smaller than comparable Mil-Spec connectors. The use of an aluminium alloy body achieves a low weight for size, yet is able withstand high shock and vibration and is IP-67 rated.
The push-pull latching mechanism provide a secure connection, while the contact density enables panel space savings. Multi-key options prevent cross-mating of similar connectors within a panel. Models are available with two to 66 contacts, and LV , fibre optic, plus hybrids contact types.
The connectors can withstand up to 1,000 mating cycles. Crimp and PCB terminations are available. The connectors offer full EMC protection and can withstand temperatures between -15 to +200 degree C.
