Push/Pull
Invented by Swiss connector manufacturer LEMO, the push-pull connector provides a strong, easy-to-engage locking mechanism that prevents accidental disconnects. Their cylindrical shape enables a wide range of body styles, materials, and configurations such as low- or high-voltage, multi-pin, coaxial, triaxial, fiber optic, or thermocouple. Push-pull technology is used for data, signal, and power applications.
