3. DESCRIPTION. The coupling ring of these
threaded and bayonet type connectors is mounted on
the plug shell and assists in mating and unmating
contacts as the coupling ring is tightened or loosened.
Complete mating of threaded types occurs when the
plug shell bottoms against the receptacle shell. The
connector inserts are designed to positively lock the
contacts in place. Insert arrangements for individual
connectors are shown for each connector part number.
The contacts are rear inserted and front release, rear
removable. Disengagement of the connector is
necessary only when removing contacts from
2. This Work Package (WP) pertains to connectors
manufactured in accordance with MIL-DTL-26500.
They are capable of withstanding operating
5. MIL-DTL-26500 connectors are miniature, circular,
temperatures to 392°F (200°C). The connectors prevent
environment resistant, with front-release, rear
pin or socket damage during normal mating of
removable crimp contacts (Figure 1). Hermetic
counterpart connectors. Integral keys and keyways in
shell of connector prevents engagement of contacts
until they are properly aligned.
6. 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 three.
