    I am using a 3 pin lemo connector and I think that I am losing voltage
    with it.

    I tested with a meter and found that 12V was coming out of my box, but
    when I connect the lemo, only 9.9V comes out. Is there something I am
    doing wrong?

    What's connected on the load side of the connector?

    4 solenoids. But i checked the voltage from the pins on the lemo. so
    some voltage loss occurs before it reaches the load. =(

    V = IR !

    How familiar are you with the above ?

    Opps !

  6. With the Lemo and load connected, measure the voltage from the supply side
    of each Lemo pin to the load side of the same pin. (That is, from pin 1 on
    the jack side to pin 1 on the plug side, pin 2 to 2, and so forth.)

    If the voltage is more than 10 millivolts or so, then there is a problem
    with the connector. If not, then the connector is working fine.

    As Graham pointed out, connecting a load to a supply will often cause the
    supply's voltage to drop. That is not the fault of the connector. If the
    effect is undesirable, then you need a supply that is rated for more current
    and/or one that is better regulated.
