WTB: Lemo 0S patch panels
« on: November 06, 2018, 08:03:25 PM »
Hello!
I'm looking for Lemo 0S patch panels, altogether at least 48 channels in and out.
Ideally to XLR, but let me know what you have...


Still looking for a 1U panel, preferably without cabling. I could also use just the connectors....

Hey,
I was on the hunt for a patchbay recently as well and had these still saved as a bookmark: https://www.vintagetools.de/Other/patchbays-patchcords/19-inch-1RU-40x-LEMO-Series-0S-gold-patchbay-SF238.html.

Just FYI if you don't find anyone selling them here.

Best

Ghielmetti are nice too, but I already have a lot of Lemo patch cables...

Thanks! Unfortunately they just have one of each model. I'd really like to avoid having two different patchbays.

They pop up on eBay Germany regularly.
I've recently bought two Patchpanels (64 in, 64 outs to XLR), 40 bridging plugs and 32 patchcables for less than 300€, which, I think, is really cheap for what you get.
I can now understand why they are used in broadcast... Top notch quality   ;) Gold contacts everywhere, great latching system. That stuff will probably outlive me.  ::)

don't know anything about Lemo , but what types are  balanced on the front.
Must of them I see look like they are for coax ( pin and ring ) or is there a hidden contact somewhere?

The ones I'm looking for (0S) indeed are coaxial or actually triaxial. So tip and ring carry hot and cold and ground is connected to the housing.

that's interesting. are the OS types actual for audio use ?
i'm looking for a long time for chassis mount patch sockets and neither TT nor Ghielmetti makes them
so the only option would be the Lemo's.
Of course I could use 6,3 jacks but I think the Lemo types connect smooth

Yes, these were very common in Austrian and German broadcasting equipment.

Comparing Lemo to Jacks is a sacrilege!  :P
These are amongst, if not THE best connectors you can get.

Thanks! I already found some connectors, so the only thing I could still use is a 1HE panel. Preferrably with two rows and no cabling.

Yes, it's incredible that these panels are so cheap used, considering one (!) connector costs around 20€ when bought new.... :o

I could be interested.
are these connectors chassis mount , can they be removed from the panel ?
