Features and Application
The threaded coupling, environmentally sealed
MIL-DTL-5015 Series III connector with rear-removable
crimp contacts was developed to replace the earlier solder
type. This redesigned connector is intermateable and
intermountable with the MIL-DTL-5015 Series I solder type
(MS310*) as well as the MIL-DTL- 83723 Series II (USAF)
crimp type and MIL-DTL-5015 Series II Front Release
(MS340*). Thus, it provides for a minimum effort and high
economy upgrade for existing applications.
These connectors are recommended for a wide range of
applications, from commercial/industrial and mass
transportation systems to the most stringent high reliability
defense and aerospace requirements.
This family of connectors is offered in four receptacle
mounting configurations. They include two square flange
receptacles, both wall and box mounting; cable connecting
receptacles; and jam nut receptacles which incorporate “O”
ring seals, designed for rear panel “D” hole mounting.
Two plug styles are offered - standard plug with captivated
coupling nut retained by a combination “L” washer and
retaining ring to prevent inadvertent disassembly and a
self-locking, anti-decoupling plug, which eliminates the need
for safety wiring.
Eighty-eight insert arrangements per MIL-STD-1651 are tooled
and qualified to MIL-DTL-5015, utilizing 1 to 85 contacts.
Contacts come in sizes 16, 12, 8, 4 and 0, terminating wire
sizes from 20 gauge to 0 gauge.
These connectors are available in wide range of shell
materials and finishes. Aluminum shells are offered in
both electroless nickel and olive drab cadmium to both
commercial and MS callouts. Other finishes such as anodic
and zinc cobalt are available upon request to commercial
callouts only. In addition, we offer passivated stainless steel
shells with both standard and firewall-rated inserts, and
carbon steel shells with firewall inserts.
