The Nicoral™ surface treatment is a salt spray corrosion resistant finish. Salt spray corrosion testing was invented at the beginning of the 20th century. It’s a controlled corrosion environment testing used to test corrosion-resistant materials. LEMO’s Nicoral surface treatment can be applied to our range of Aluminium connectors and offers 500 hours of salt spray resistance for instance with LEMO’s M series and F series connector.
The Halo LED connector is a connector with a LED lighted flange allowing to display the connector status, thus enabling the user or operator to have an immediate visual indication of the connection status. It can be used for Network connection status and it can be used to display settings too. When multiple connections need to be made, the user will know straight away if all the connexion setups are running fine.
