This specification covers environment-resisting, quick disconnect, EMI/RFI shielded and non-shielded umbilical, electric connectors and adapter assemblies with removable crimp or nonremovable solder-type contacts and accessories. Connectors are rated for operation from -55 °C (-67 °F) to 200 °C (392 °F). Adapter assemblies are rated for operation from -55 °C (-67 °F) to 125 °C (257 °F). The upper temperature is the maximum internal hot spot temperature resulting from any combination of electrical load and ambient temperature.
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is intended to document and provide access to information obtained by an industry survey. It summarizes and documents data regarding possible alternatives to the use of cadmium plating on general connectors and connector accessories typically used in aerospace and military defense electrical interconnect systems.
This specification covers miniature, composite, high density, threaded coupling, self-locking, circular, environment resistant, electrical connectors utilizing removable crimp contacts, and associated hardware, which are capable of continuous operation within a temperature range of -65 to +175 °C. These connectors are supplied under an AS9100 reliability assurance program. See 6.1 for intended use and applications.
