Rohnert Park, California – LEMO has recently made some design changes to the T Series watertight (IP68) connectors. The outer shell design changed to LEMO's standard look and the connector now has three latches vs. two.

The T Series design is for the medical, defense/security, test & measurement, and any other market/application that requires a watertight connection. The T Series connectors are small-sized watertight connectors using the same original LEMO Push-Pull technology. Based on the LEMO B Series, the T Series includes a special construction with an inner-sleeve and extra sealing to enable IP68 water protection. The T Series is available in 2- to 9- contact configurations. Contacts can be terminated by soldering to the wire, crimping onto the wire, or directly to a PCB. A keying system ensures correct connector alignment and the connector outershell offers full EMI shielding.

The T Series uses the high-performance contact system and configurations from the LEMO B Series range, providing a wide selection of options that can be made available quickly. It is backward compatible with the B Series, with the same receptacle panel-hole diameter for customers wanting to upgrade existing designs.

The connector outershell is available in black-chrome finish or plated brass, making the product ideal for industries wherever the environmental conditions require ruggedized equipment. The T Series catalog can be found at:

LEMO also provides raw wire & cable, cable assembly, prototypes and custom designs with the same uncompromising commitment to quality.
