Lemo Presenting Harsh Environment Connectors and Cables at IBC2016
Building upon a foundation of six decades of field-proven, high-reliability cable connectors, LEMO offers over 75,000 combinations of breakthrough products that meet the most complex requirements. LEMO’s cutting edge, custom advancements are readily apparent at their subsidiaries COELVER, REDEL, and NORTHWIRE. Focused on meeting customers’ exact specifications, LEMO Group delivers a comprehensive suite of custom products and services to more than 100,000 valued customers in over 80 countries around the world.
At IBC Lemo demonstrated the quality and the robustness of their custom wire and cable solutions with a robot. The robot was bending a cable over the duration of the IBC, however the cable was showing no impact at all.
Also on Show was the new Lemo connector called Halo LED, which is part of a new range called IAC™ (Intelligent Active Connector).
This Push-Pull metal connector is based on existing LEMO series and will be 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.
The connector includes a circular array of LED positioned on the connector flange. These LEDs can be either white, red, green or blue. The equipment designer can also, according to his needs, display two different colours consecutively (green/red for instance), allowing the equipment to display a connector status for diagnostics.
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.
