    RED Digital (RED)

    Message from M. Alexander Pesci - CEO LEMO Group

    LEMO and RED have been close partners for a very long time with RED using LEMO authentic connectors across their camera platforms. Recently, at two European exhibits (IBC and CINEC) , LEMO representatives served notice to RED claiming that some third party accessories may have incorporated infringing connector technology.

    I would like to personally apologize to RED on behalf of LEMO for serving notice in this manner and in these two instances. Neither RED nor LEMO have any control over third party suppliers incorporating infringing products. In fact, both RED and LEMO are continuously fighting the same unfortunate problem which has become an epidemic in the high-tech industry.

    LEMO values the business relationship established over many years with RED and will continue to work with RED in our common fight against product infringements.

    lemo 70 year logo

    LEMO is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2016. Seven decades of innovation have led LEMO to offer over 75,000 product combinations, a product range that continues to grow through custom specific designs.

    LEMO was founded in 1946 by Mr Léon Mouttet in Morges, Switzerland. Initially, the company specialised in manufacturing electrical contacts in noble metals for the Swiss post and test equipment for watch barrels.

    In August 1957, Mr Léon Mouttet invented and patented the Push-Pull connector and since then the company has experienced steady growth. LEMO opened its first sales office in Italy in 1964 and then in Germany and the United States. The Group now has subsidiaries and distributors all over the world.

    At first, LEMO manufactured exclusively metal connectors. Since 1984, the product range was extended by producing plastic connectors under the REDEL brand name.

    LEMO connectors and cables are present in various fields of applications, the most important ones being the medical, test & measurement and broadcast industries.

    With the latest acquisition of NORTHWIRE in 2014, the group now employs over 1500 people dedicated to making high-quality connectors, wire and cable solutions.

    Throughout its 7 decades of business, LEMO has remained a Swiss family-owned business, with 95% of added value produced by the company and more than half of its staff based in Switzerland.

    "We at LEMO are thankful to all our customers for making this anniversary possible,” said Mr Alexandre Pesci, third-generation CEO and owner of the LEMO Group. “We look forward to continue supplying innovative high-quality solutions meeting the users’ highest expectations for many years to come.”

    New LEMO 12-Way 0B Connector 9.5mm Diameter
    New LEMO 12-Way 0B Connector 9.5mm Diameter being Introduced at SME - Southern Manufacturing Exhibition - UK
     
    LEMO is showcasing its latest products and initiatives at the show, delivering even smaller connectors whilst maintaining or improving connector performance, along with products from newly-acquired specialist cable manufacturer, Northwire Industries.
     
    Northwire offers special cables to customer requirements in small quantities and with a fast turn-around time, thus complementing the range of connectors and enabling LEMO UK to offer complete custom connection solutions, including overmoulded assemblies. Northwire have many years experience of manufacturing cables for a wide range of industries, including medical, test & measurement, defence, robotics and automation. Quality approvals include ISO9001 and AS9100C.
    LEMO's latest development, the “Tiny Trio”, is based around smaller diameter contacts which are able to maintain high contact ratings due to the unique LEMO design : an inbuilt spring ensuring continuous contact even with high vibration.
     
    LEMO has firstly been able to squeeze 5 contacts, each rated to 1.5A, into its tiny 00 Series, which is only 6mm diameter, making it ideal for communication and other equipment where very small yet tough connectors are required for handling signals. Additionally (on show for the first time at the Southern Manufacturing Exhibition), LEMO is now able to offer 12 contacts in the 0B series, which is only 9.5mm in diameter and is also rated 1.5A continuous.
     
    The second new range from LEMO is the waterproof T Series, which builds on the long and widely established B Series connectors, incorporating the original LEMO Push-Pull latching connection technology and including an inner sleeve and additional sealing to provide protection against water ingress to IP68 level when mated. The 0T Series was the first of the T Series to be made available, and other larger sizes will be presented at the show for the first time.
     
    The new T Series utilizes the proven high performance contact system and configurations from the highly popular LEMO B Series range, providing a very wide selection of options that can be made available quickly. It is backwardly compatible with the B Series, with the same socket panel hole diameter, which will be of considerable benefit to customers looking to upgrade existing designs as there is no need to change front panel dimensions, and upgraded cable plug assemblies will work with existing sockets.
     
    The third development, the MM Series, is the smallest of the LEMO M Series ratchet coupling connectors, the significantly smaller alternatives to standard military connectors (e.g. MIL C38999) with up to 4 contacts in a ruggedised micro housing.

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, providing  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.

    ActionTaken Against Counterfeit Product at 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.
