LEMO, a Swiss owned company, was established in 1946 and continues to be a global leader in the design and manufacture of high quality precision custom connection solutions. LEMO connectors are exceptionally reliable and robust owing to the "Push-Pull" self-latching system, invented by LEMO's founder Léon Mouttet. LEMO is known for their quality and reliability and LEMO connectors can be found in many challenging and life saving applications including: medical, broadcast, test & measurement, aerospace, automotive and industrial.
LEMO ® has been in business for over 50 years designing and manufacturing circular connectors. LEMO ® was one of the first designers to develop a “push-pull self latching system” also referred to as quick connect / disconnect feature and/or push-pull. All LEMO ® circular push pull connectors are RoHS compliant and many connectors are UL recognized.
LEMO ® manufactures a broad line of circular connectors. The most popular LEMO ® circular connectors are the types B, S, K, E, NimCamac/Minax and REDEL. Other types of LEMO ® circular connectors include Audio/Video, F, 2C/2G, D, Fiber Optic, and Fluidic. All of these LEMO ® circular connectors come standard with the “push-pull self latching” feature. Most LEMO ® circular push-pull connectors are rated for five thousand (5000) mating cycles.
LEMO ® Type B circular connectors range in size from 00 (half the diameter of a pencil) to size 5 (roughly the diameter of a large tube of toothpaste) containing contacts 2 to 64. Mixed circular contact configurations of HV, FO, Coax, and Fluidic are available. The Type B connectors are “keyed” zero degrees with alternate keying options and reverse sex availability.
LEMO ® Type S circular connectors range in size from 00 (half the diameter of a pencil) to size 6 (about the size of a small arm wrist) containing contacts 1 to 106. Mixed circular contact configurations of HV and coax are also available. The Type S connectors are “keyed” with hermaphroditic inserts.
LEMO ® Type K circular connectors range in size from 0 to size 5 (these are slightly larger than the Type B connectors) containing contacts from 2 to 64. Mixed circular contact configurations of HV, FO, Coax, and Fluidic are available. The Type K connectors are keyed zero degrees with alternate keying options and reverse sex availability. When mated these are rated IP68 in accordance with IEC60529; when unmated these are rated IP66.
LEMO ® Type E circular connectors range in size from 00 to size 6 (these are slightly larger than the Type S connectors) containing contacts from 1 to 106. Mixed circular contact configurations of HV and coax are also available. The Type E connectors are “keyed” with hermaphroditic inserts. When mated these are rated IP68 in accordance with IEC60529; when unmated these are rated IP66.
LEMO ® Type NimCamac/Minax circular connectors are all size 00 (half the diameter of a pencil) or size 01 (one third the diameter of a pencil). These are all coax configurations available in crimp or solder. LEMO ® NimCamac/Minax are one of the smallest high performance push-pull circular connectors in the World.
LEMO ® Type REDEL push-pull circular connectors are a premium plastic product. REDEL connectors range in diameter of 14MM (the size of your finger) to 21MM (diameter of a quarter). Multipin circular contact configurations contain 2 to 32 pins. Mixed circular contact configurations include fluidic, fiber optic, and mains power. LEMO ® Type REDEL connectors are “keyed” zero degrees with alternate keying options. Additional features include, color coding, 1000+ mating cycles, and chemical/steam sterilization.
