Amphenol Luminus Connectors

Amphenol Luminus Series Connectors


LIGHT-WEIGHT, COST-EFFECTIVE, “SCOOP-PROOF” CONNECTORS

The Luminus Series are light-weight, cost-effective connectors that are highly reliable and simple to use. With multiple product options to choose from, they meet MIL-T-81714, accept AS39029 and Stamped & Formed contacts, and are environmentally-sealed to IP67. Ideal where space is limited, these innovative, “scoop-proof” connectors feature a locking mechanism that ensures stability, are suitable for blind-mating, and are RoHS compliant.

Now available, the Amphenol Pegasus Series.  These twist & lock, “scoop-proof” connectors provide the same convenience and weight savings of the Luminus Series, with the added benefit of EMI shielding and protection from ambient noise transients.
