As all NAVAIR connector and accessory
documents are transitioned to non-government
standards, the Society of Automotive Engineers
(SAE) will become the preparing activity and
the Navy will adopt the documents, and the
drawing number prefix will change from MS
to AS. The main part number designation
remains the same, with the "M" prefix, such as
M81511/17-08. At times the entire item may be
superseded by another. There are many cases
where documents have been cancelled without
replacements, each case was reviewed and
some information has been retained in this
volume "for reference use only".

interface of connector is greatly reduced. This rear
release feature also permits the removal or installation
of any number of contacts without uncoupling
5. WIRE SEALING. Wire sealing is accomplished by
use of a grommet seal designed to seal against outside
diameter of inserted wire. The outer diameter shall be
within applicable size range.
6. MIL-DTL-83723 SERIES III.
7. MIL-DTL-83723 Series III connectors are bayonet
or thread coupled with rear release, rear removable,
crimp contacts. Hermetic connectors are available with
non-removable solder type contacts (Figure 1).
8. GROMMET SEALING PLUGS. The grommets of
environment resisting connectors are designed to accept
sealing plugs in accordance with MS27488 to be used
where unwired contacts are placed. The connector
when ordered as a unit will have sealing plugs enclosed
to equal 15 percent of the number of contacts but not
less than one.
