Standard Circular High Environmental Connectors – These connectors are available for many applications, from commercial/industrial and mass transportation systems to the most s stringent high reliability military and space requirements. The MS345 connector is a threaded coupling, removable rear release crimp contact type. Fully intermateable with existing MIL-C-5015 and threaded MILC-83723 Series II (USAF) type connectors, they provide for minimum effort and high economy upgrades for existing applications. In addition, the offer simplified design for new and inter phase equipment.MS connectors converted under MIL-C-5015 (Navy) utilize fluid resistant elastomers to provide maximum protection against degrading fuels, oils, coolants and cleansers. Temperature with standing capabilities range from – 55°C to +200°C depending upon the class. The use of electro less nickel and cadmium plating for hardware finishes gives the connectors maximum protection from the above factors. High quality manufacturing processes and materials combine to insure the optimum performance and materials combine to insure the optimum range of environmental conditions. The MS connector is available in five shell styles and 72 contact arrangements accommodating from 1 to 52 contact (sizes 0, 4, 8, 12, and 16). Shell polarization is effected by a single keyway and key, standard MS polarization positions are available to prevent mismating.
Universal Insertion/Extraction Tool Style – A single,expendable plastic tool is used for insertion andextraction of both pins and sockets. Tool never touchesengaging ends of contacts, cannot damage insert.
Simple, Strong Contact Design – One basic configurationeliminates undercuts, maximizes bend resistancefor positive contact mating.
Interfacial Pin Insert Seal – Universal interconnectpermits design of raised moisture barriers aroundeach pin which mate into lead-in chamfers of hardface socket insert for individual contact sealing.Interfacial seal is never touched by service tools.
Superior Contact Stability – “Closed-down” designof each contact cavity in the insulator support eachcontact, minimizes contact splaying.
Closed Entry Socket Insert – Hard dielectric socketface of mating connector has lead-in chamfers forpositive alignment of pins and sockets.
Simplified Assembly Operations – One standard procedurefor assembling connectors and contacts, standardMS crimp tools, all servicing of contacts accomplishedfrom the rear of the connector.
