Why use military connectors?

25 11 2011

Do you need reliable and efficient electronic connectors that can withstand any type of harsh environment? Military connectors are connectors which are specifically designed for military use. These connectors are used in a variety of ways by trained professionals within the military sector.

Connectors used by the military are described in two types of formats which include the MIL-C-26482 and the MIL-DTL-26482 formats. Of the two, the latter is the most current type. These two types of connectors offer complete protection against fluid and dust. Many circular pins come with these types of connectors. Industrial Ethernet also utilizes the same kind of technology.

There is an increasing demand for reliable connectors with military type performance specification and accuracy. Such industrial applications include control equipment used in nuclear power generation facilities and banking and security systems among others. These facilities also require the same reliability and performance as any military facilities. Electronic data from these industrial facilities also require optimum protection which military connectors can provide.

Connectors with military specifications are expected to withstand high impact shock, corrosion, and extreme changing temperatures. Materials for these types of connectors may include metal and composite among others. Because of the ability of these connectors to withstand environmental abuse, the usage extends not only for military use but also in communication, aviation, traffic control, and geophysical applications. Moreover, more and more rail transportation companies and vehicles utilise the efficiency, reliability, and durability of military connectors.

If you are worried about moisture, vibration, and changes in pressure, the use of connectors with military specifications could be the answer. These types of connectors come in different types and sizes which include the miniature size, sub-miniature size, and micro size connectors.

Install rugged, lightweight, and compact connectors made with military quality specifications for any type of industrial application. This is what you need if you want your connectors to withstand challenging conditions.
