Product Safety Notice & Disclaimers
Product safety notice
Please read and follow all instructions carefully and consult all relevent national and international safety regulations for your application. Improper handling, cable assembly, or wrong use of connectors can result in hazardous situations.
Shock and fire hazard
Incorrect wiring, the use of damaged components, presence of foreign objects (such as metal debris), and / or residue (such as cleaning fluids), can result in short circuits, overheating, and / or risk of electric shock.
Mated components should never be disconnected while live as this may result in an exposed electric arc and local overheating, resulting in possible damage to components.
Connectors and their components should be visually inspected for damage prior to installation and assembly. Suspect components should be rejected or returned to the factory for verification.
Connector assembly and installation should only be carried out by properly trained personnel. Proper tools must be used during installation and / or assembly in order to obtain safe and reliable performance.
Connectors with exposed contacts should never be live (or on the current supply side of a circuit). Under general conditions voltages above 30 VAC and 42 VDC are considered hazardous and proper measures should be taken to eliminate all risk of transmission of such voltages to any exposed metal part of the connector.
Test and operating voltages
The maximum admissible operating voltage depends upon the national or international standards in force for the application in question. Air and creepage distances impact the operating voltage; reference values are indicated in the catalog however these may be influenced by PC board design and / or wiring harnesses.
The test voltage indicated in the catalog is 75% of the mean breakdown voltage; the test is applied at 500 V/s and the test duration is 1 minute.
CE marking means that the appliance or equipment bearing it complies with the protection requirements of one or several European safety directives.
CE marking applies to complete products or equipment, but not to electromechanical components, such as connectors.
The LEMO Group reserves the right to modify and improve to our products or specifications without providing prior notification.
