MS connectors meet the latest performance requirements of MIL-DTL-5015. These connectors represent well-proven electrical capability at an acceptable cost for
most equipment where durability is important.
MIL-DTL-5015 features threaded couplings and single key/keyway polarization, representing maximum simplicity in design. Applications include military ground support
equipment, ordnance and shipboard installations.
Amphenol Industrial Operations manufactures five classes of connectors to meet different requirements.Class designations and brief descriptions are listed
A Solid Shell for general, non-environmental applications.
C Pressurized for use on pressurized bulkheads or pressure barriers; limits air leakage regardless of type and class of plug mated with them.
E/F Environmental Resisting with Strain Relief designed for applications where the connector will be exposed to moisture, vibration, and rapid
changes in pressure and temperature.
R Lightweight Environmental Resisting shorter in length and lighter in weight than the E and F classes, the MS-R offers a high degree of reliability
under adverse conditions: recommended for new design applications.
