All-plastic connectors in the spotlight


The sales of LEMO’s SP series plastic connectors have shot up during the past few years. The all- plastic solution has gone on to become a reference in the medical field.


o say that REDEL SP connectors have been a success would be quite an understatement. The series – one of the two circular ‘all-plastic’ connectors produced by the LEMO Group – has seen its sales explode by 600% these past five years, with North America being its largest market, and Japan and northern Europe the runners-up. The success of the SP Series does not only rest on the legendary quality and reliability of LEMO solutions. It is also thanks to a combination of unique product qualities, resulting from two years of research. Firstly, SP connectors stand out due to their compact design. They are the smallest members of the large P family (hence the name SP for small plastic). Their unique internal latch mechanism is very space efficient, therefore, they can still accommodate high-density requirements up to 22 contacts, despite their relative overall small 15.5mm diameter.

The REDEL P series, self-latching plastic connectors for medical applications.


Their housing is made of FDA-certified polyphenylsulfone (PPSU), five times lighter than steel and highly resistant to sterilisation cycles, cleaning agents and high temperatures. The patented internal latch mechanism offers even higher protection from liquids (sterilisation and splashes) and, at the same time, higher resistance to mechanical shock and impact.


The REDEL SP series offer an ergonomic design and a push-pull latch system.

Quality of the plastic Ease of use is another distinctive quality of the SP range, which is particularly pertinent in the medical field, as ease of use is a prerequisite rather than a benefit. In addition to its ergonomic design and intuitive push-pull latch system, there are three guide keys enabling ‘blind mating’ as well as colour coding for instant identification of what connects where. High density, compact design, resistance to sterilisation cycles and ease of use: everything was there to convince medical technology companies. Combined with a dedicated high-performance cable – NORTHWIRE’s BioCompatic, for example – SP connectors offer the ideal solution for hospital environments. LEMO, through its REDEL brand, has been recognised as a medical market leader for decades. It all started back in 1984 with the design of the 3P series, followed by the compact and most successful 1P series. Now an established medical standard, the 1P has been inevitably copied. However, customers have shown continued trust in the original LEMO quality and


reliability for life-critical applications, where failure is not an option. Building on its success, the SP Series journey has only just begun. LEMO engineers are constantly innovating to bring new variations with even higher performance and features matching its customers’ highest expectations. REDEL has proven – and continues to do so – that plastic deserves to be at the high end of the market.


Celebrate 75 years in 2021 The story of LEMO is about a small family enterprise that has grown into a group of 25 companies and 1,800 employees worldwide, active over five continents, and supplying more than 100,000 customers in 80 countries. What is the secret behind this fascinating entrepreneurial and human adventure? The ability to keep changing while staying true to its core values.


LEMO was created in 1946 by Léon Mouttet in Morges, a small town in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. It was in 1957 that he invented the ‘push- pull’ latching system. This new type of practical, safe and high-quality connector became paramount for LEMO’s future. LEMO products are still predominantly manufactured in Switzerland, with over 95% of vertical integration and 95% of products sold abroad. The acquisition of the US cable manufacturer NORTHWIRE in 2014 marked a new step forward: LEMO can now offer not only connectors, but complete cable- connector solutions.


LEMO connectors are found in a variety of challenging application environments; including, medical, industrial control, test and measurement, audio/video, broadcast, and robotics. LEMO offers cable and wire as well as cable assembly services. ●
