Weald Electronics introduces its new LMR Range

Weald Electronics, a UK manufacturer of electrical connectors and accessories, has introduced its new LMR Range of rugged rack and panel connectors. The LMR Range is a direct alternative to the obsolete ITW McMurdo Connectors Red Range which is widely used in blind mating applications. The new connector series will allow the many users of the ITW connectors to continue manufacturing existing products and supporting systems in use globally.

Designed as a line-to-line or panel connector, the connectors feature a polarised, self-aligning and low insertion force blind-mate plug and socket arrangement, ideally suited for inaccessible applications. The current rating of 5A through each contact lends itself to the growing requirements for high-power, high-reliability electrical systems.

The Weald LMR Range connectors will be moulded in the higher-temperature DAP (Diallyl Phthalate resin) material only and are fully back-compatible with the ITW McMurdo Connectors Red Range in Nylon and DAP. DAP offers many excellent physical properties such as electrical insulation, heat resistance, water resistance, chemical resistance and ease of moulding and has proved a popular choice in the former ITW McMurdo Connectors Red Range.

Nick Wheeler, Sales Director of Lane Electronics, says, “With proven longevity in many applications around the world, our heavy-duty LMR Range rectangular rack and panel connector system will now ensure the continued popularity of this style, which is particularly suited for use in rugged conditions, such as industrial electronics equipment, robotics and process control.”

Key features:

  • Rugged construction
  • 180° polarised
  • Floating bushes to assist alignment
  • Excellent current carrying characteristics
  • Available in four sizes with eight, 16, 24 and 32 contacts
  • 5A current rating
  • Working voltage 800V DC or AC peak
  • UL-94 V-0 rated flame-retardant
  • Diallyl-Phthalate (DAP) insulators
  • Direct alternative to ITW McMurdo Connectors Red Range

A new catalogue for the WEALD LMR Range is available and added to the Lane Electronics website. Lane Electronics will soon have stock in place for immediate availability, providing a significant improvement on the earlier ITW McMurdo Connectors lead times. There is also a useful cross-reference wizard on the Lane Electronics website to help customers seamlessly move to the equivalent Weald LMR Range products.
