Lemo miniature multi-pin connectors are used on a large number of radiomic systems. The Lemo range of connectors is extensive, with numerous options available to special order, and consequently one of the most daunting catalogues for the inexperienced to attempt to navigate! Canford has selected the most frequently used types, and holds these as stock items. Note: The full Lemo catalogue is not available from Canford Technical Support due to the size and complexity. Other Lemo types are available to special order, please contact Technical Support.
All types feature positive latching, released by a sliding shell on the cable connector which disengages when pulled away from the panel, together with a collet cable clamp. Bodies are matt chrome-plated brass, and pins are brass, triple-plated with copper, nickel and finally gold.
The B series, in their size 0B version, are part of the Lemo “New Generation Group” of connectors. They feature an alignment key on the outer part of the cable connector shell to prevent errors in alignment damaging the contacts. The versions stocked have male contacts, and collets which accept cables 3.1mm - 4.0mm diameter. These types are widely used on Trantec systems.
This series of 50 ohm, multipole connectors stems from the 00 series and has been specifically developed for applications where the connection must be guaranteed under very high pressure. The push-pull latching system has been replaced by a screw coupling system with water tightness maintained by the compression of an O-ring. The rugged housing is ideal for extreme working conditions and 360 degree screening allows for full EMC shielding. Applications include the aerospace and petroleum industries amongst others.
The 2C series, are part of the Lemo “Standard Group” of connectors. They feature short body-lengths (approx. 30mm), and a semi-circular contact insert with half male and half female contacts. The versions stocked have collets which accept cables 3.5mm - 4.1mm diameter. These types are widely used on Micron systems
