Trying to search for anything using this site's "search box" is a nightmare.

I'm looking to make some flyer to red power cables, and there are so many Lemo parts that look the same on their site. I thought I would just ask if anyone knows if these are the right part numbers for the connectors.

3-pin from sled: FGG.0K.303.CLAC50 or FGG.1K.303.CLAC40

6-pin RED power: FGG.2B.306.CLAD82

Does anyone have preference toward crimp-on or solder? I have no problem soldering, and it might save me buying an extra tool. Also, does anyone recommend a certain place to buy these from? Thanks.

Alan--

You do have the correct Lemo part number for the RED One power connector. Go with solder as crimps just invite future failure and disaster. As to a supplier, I use Mouser for most of my Lemo orders but you might try searching suppliers in CA rather than out of state.

As to the Flyer parts, I don't know but you should look at your cable connectors as Lemo stamps most of the part number into the shell of the connector. You should contact Lemo and order some catalogs as they provide an excellent component breakout that helps identify parts and nomenclature.

Thanks Brant. I'll order a catalogue.

Call Maryanne at Sager Electronics.
She's great!
I recommend solder.

You might try Powell Electronics.
Ask for Isreal Roman.
I think they're out of New Jersey... they've got a $100 min which blows.

Hi
try googling 'unipole and multipole connectors lemo'. This took me to a comprehensive Lemo catalogue with lots of helpful tips and tricks about Lemo connectors, plus an explanation of their not-so-simple parts and pieces code. Good stuff!

Cheers,
Sven

I'll order a catalogue.


Alan,

I am sending you a PDF version of the LEMO catalogue. Much quicker than ordering a dead tree version. Used the email acct listed through this forum.

Cheers.

The catalog is easily found on the mouser.com website when looking at the product page for any LEMO connector.

Still trying to understand the naming convention though.

Thanks for the catalogue, Andrew. William, the catalogue has a very thorough explanation of the naming convention... Having said that, I felt like I was doing ancient Egyptian algebra trying to understand it all.

I was thinking more like Chinese metaphysics. Good to have the catalogue on your computer rather than relying on the internet to study the arcane system of coding and tabling of data.

I feel like I have a better chance of understanding Chinese metaphysics than the LEMO model numbering system.

Honestly, I just want a simple thing (iPhone app, PDF doc, java script, widget, Kelly wheel-equivalent) where I put in a LEMO model number, and it immediately tells me:

- That's a receptacle, 4 pins, made of this material
- Here's all the plug models that will insert into that receptacle.

And vice versa (feed it a plug, and it tells you what receptacle works with it).
