    New MM connector

    Major trends in connector development over the last few years are miniaturisation and increased contact density. System integrators in various markets, such as automotive, testing and aviation, are looking to increase the number of sensors and data acquisition means. Naturally this requires more connectors and cables in reduced space. 

    LEMO is extending its range of M series connectors with the introduction of the new MM series. The MM series is available with 2, 3 or 4 contacts and is be one of the smallest IP 68 connectors of the LEMO range. With this very small connector, LEMO completes its range of connectors for the automotive / racing market by offering connectors suitable for cable diameters 2 to 27 mm and contact configurations ranging from 2 to 114 contacts.

    4 new products from LEMO at BVE

    LEMO will be demonstrating 4 new products at BVE exhibition further building on the package of products to support HD camera link systems.

    A new lightweight Furukawa 6.4mm diameter HD hybrid fibre cable is available, manufactured to SMPTE format including steel central strength member with reduced power conductors, to provide a tough but light camera cable offering weight savings of approximately 45% compared to standard SMPTE fibre camera cables. Maximum operating distance is up to 1km depending on camera system.

    Picture 1. View of fibre and copper wires in Furukawa SMPTE cable

    The latest Redel® T7 connector has been developed to meet the increasing demands of HD triax camera applications with significantly improved performance. Fully compatible and exchangeable with the 1051 Series connector commonly used for triax cameras in Europe, the T7 connector has the additional advantages of better VSWR characteristics and a more secure latching mechanism. Available with either solder or crimp contacts and with a wide range of options to handle the majority of triax cable sizes, the Redel T7 connector is fully sealed to IP68 to cope with all weather conditions.

       Picture 2. New T7 series catalogue

    LEMO also offer a high performance HD Triax 11 cable specially manufactured to LEMO specifications to match the excellent transmission properties of the LEMO range of precision triaxial connectors including the new Redel T7 for HD camera applications, with low attenuation and high level EMC screening properties.  Competitively priced against other HD triax cable, it is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, giving HD transmission distances up to 30% longer than standard triax cable.

    The cable has a black outer jacket making it less likely to be seen during filming in comparison to red coloured cables, especially in studios, as well as helping to distinguish between standard and HD triax cables. It is also relatively light (for example only 30kg for a 200 metre length) for ease of transportation.

    Complete cable assemblies are available to order including boots and gaiters as required.

    New LEMO HD Z-Link camera-back connects camcorders to SMPTE HD fibre links.  See the new Z-Link  along with highly reliable HD triax & HD fibre push-pull connectors and cable assemblies. LEMO connectors and fibre converters are found wherever you need truly dependable connections, whether for audio, video, datacoms or controls.

    Action taken against counterfeit product at a recent electronic exhibition

     

    Counterfeiting is becoming more and more of a problem for electronic manufacturers, particularly when passed off as original product, resulting in many instances of warranty problems for manufacturers and users alike. 
     
    At a recent exhibition a number of Asian companies were found to be offering direct copies of LEMO Push-Pull connectors, sometimes exactly copying the LEMO branding, catalogue and part numbers. LEMO took appropriate action and, through a combination of customs (illegal import of counterfeit products) and legal means (breaking copyright) these products were cleared from the relevant stands with penalties being imposed. 
     
    LEMO will continue to take every opportunity to demonstrate to counterfeiters and their importers that action can and will be taken against them.

    Back to the future–the return of LEMO UK to new headquarters and a new website.
    After a 4 year absence LEMO UK have returned to their North Street location in Worthing to a new, multi-million pound, futuristic building that provides the space and modern facilities to continue our development as a supplier of high quality interconnection solutions for niche applications in industries such as Broadcast, Defence, Scientific Research and Test and Measurement.
     
    LEMO UK occupied 12 North Street for 17 years prior to moving out to temporary premises nearby, acquiring the Caffyns site next door to provide the space for our 3,700 sq m modern and stylish building that now adds a new dimension to Worthing's skyline. The new facilities will house all our UK operations including Engineering, Manufacturing, Distribution, Administration and Sales & Marketing, as well as the LEMO Group's Fibre Optic R&D centre - LEMO F.O.U.R.
     
    The basement of the building will house our extensive cable stock and cable reeling equipment, connector stores and assembly will be on the ground floor along with our prototyping machine shop. The first floor will house our sales, technical and production administration, our large and light cable assembly and test shop and the Fibre Optics R&D engineering, laboratory and training centre. General administration, accounts and our conference room are on the second floor, but there is also additional space on this level for expansion of manufacturing when required. There is a cafe on the 3rd floor where employees can relax and enjoy the views of the Worthing skyline and the picturesque South Downs to the north.

    LEMO acquire Z-link

    September 2008 - LEMO has acquired a product called Z-Link from Cove-Broadcast , this is a fibre optic camera link system allowing transformation of a professional camera or camcorder into a TV live production camera.

    LEMO presented the Z-link at IBC 2008 exhibition (Amsterdam). The Z-Link is a versatile camera-mounted fibre optic camera link between any professional camera or camcorder and an OB Van, studio or outside broadcast place. This means that an ENG camera can be simply and quickly modified for studio or remote camera use if required. The Z-Link is a cost effective alternative solution for expensive studio cameras.
     
    The Z-Link provides multi-channel system camera-style video and audio connections, and control for studio cameras and camcorders alike. The fibre optic camera link simultaneously transmits digital (SDI) and analogue channel (YPrPb and PAL/NTSC), all over one thin light cable.
     
    Applications:
    • Electronic News Gathering / Satellite News Gathering (ENG/SNG)
    • Electronic Field Production (EFP)
    • Outside Broadcast (OB)
    • Live News, Multi-camera, E-Cinema production
