Now available from Lane Electronics, Weald’s family of multi-contact circular connectors is suitable for use in exposed environments. The LMF Series connectors are available in a range of shell styles and shell sizes and can be supplied with options including thermocouple contacts and full 360 degree EMC screen termination.
As standard, LMF connectors are rated from 5 to 60A and can be supplied with 1 to 25 solder contacts for DC and low-frequency applications. Operating temperature range is from -40C to +85C.
For lightweight use, LMF connectors come housed in aluminium shells with fine thread couplings while, for more heavy duty requirements, they come in brass shells with a coarse thread. Both types are IP67 rated. Weald Electronics can also supply bulkhead style LMF connectors
In addition, the connectors can be produced with a variety of plating options including RoHS compliant finishes and a clean finish brass version commonly used in the nuclear, petrochemical and mining industry, says the company.More news from Lane Electronics
