LEMO will be displaying its latest technology in connectors, cable/wire, and cable assembly during the XPOTENTIAL AUVSI 2017 Trade Show and Conference, May 9-11, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, Dallas in Booth #2641.
LEMO will be demonstrating solutions for unmanned systems including its lightweight watertight connector series, the T Series, which is one of LEMO’s smallest connector series that includes special construction with an inner-sleeve and extra sealing for IP68 water protection. This connector series is available in 2 to 32 contact configurations. The T Series connectors feature a push-pull self-latching system, mechanical key with multiple keys to avoid cross-mating, and 360° full EMC shielding.
The most common connector series for this market of course if LEMO’s well established M Series. M Series connectors are lightweight triple-start ratchet coupling type connectors designed for avionics, aerospace, military, security, motorsport, robotics, and heavy duty applications. The M Series is a COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf), yet smaller in size for the same number of pins than standard MIL 38999 products.
LEMO most recently announced their newest connector, the Anglissimo ™ elbow plug. This is the perfect solution for preventing cable clutter by adjusting and positioning the connector in an efficient way. Each connector can be orientated during its assembly into any of eight different cable exit angles. The connector then remains securely positioned in its orientation. LEMO will have a working demonstration of this solution in their booth.
Also on display will be the LEMO HALO LED type configuration. This Push-Pull metal connector is based on LEMO’s existing series and is available in B or K Series. This product includes a LED lit flange allowing to display the connection status, which enables the user to have immediate visual identification showing that the connector is securely connected and powered up.
As part of the IAC™ (Intelligent Active Connector) program, additional features, such as unique connector identification can be available. In this case, the connector pair will use an electronic chip that can offer identification, counting, safety and security options.
