Compact rugged connectors for COTS military and aerospace applications introduced by LEMO
ROHNERT PARK, Calif., 23 July 2014. LEMO USA, Inc. in Rohnert Park, Calif., is introducing the MM compact connectors for COTS military, security, and aerospace, as well as other harsh-environment applications.
The MM connectors are the most compact in the lightweight M series product line. MM Plugs and cable mount sockets come with LEMO's ratchet-coupling shells and offer weight and space savings with environmental protection.
Major trends in connector development over the last few years are miniaturization and increased contact density. Design engineers are looking to increase the number of connections in a reduced compact space, company officials say.
The MM connectors are available with three or four contacts and are some of the smallest IP68 connectors that LEMO offers. With this very small connector, LEMO completes the M series range of connectors by offering connectors suitable for cable diameters 2 to 27 millimeters and contact configurations from 2 to 114 contacts.
