Features and Application

MIL-DTL-26482 Series 2, bayonet coupling, rear-removable crimp contact connectors were designed as an upgrade to MIL-DTL-26482 Series 1. Series 2 connectors are intermountable and interchangeable with both solder and front-release crimp Series 1. They are also identical to the inactivated MIL-DTL- 83723 Series I connectors.

Series 2 connectors are widely used on commercial, military and aerospace systems requiring general-purpose, miniature cylindrical bayonet coupling connectors.

This family of connectors is offered in 4 receptacle-mounting
styles. They include narrow flange wall mounting receptacles,
wide flange wall mounting receptacles, cable connecting
receptacles and jam nut mounting receptacles which incorporate
“ O” ring seals, designed for rear panel “D” hole mounting.

Plugs are available in two designs, with and without RFI

Thirty-three insert arrangements per MIL-STD-1669 are
tooled and qualified to MIL-DTL-26482 Series 2, utilizing
3 to 61 M39029 contacts. Contacts come in sizes 20, 16 and
12, terminating wire sizes from 24 to 12 gauge.

These connectors are available in wide range of shell
materials and finishes. Aluminum shells are offered in
electroless nickel, olive drab cadmium and black anodic.
Other finishes such as zinc cobalt are available upon request
to commercial callouts only. In addition, we offer passivated
stainless steel shells with standard environment-resisting
inserts (commercial callouts only), and for highly corrosive
environments, nickel-aluminum-bronze shells with standard
environment-resisting inserts (commercial callouts only).


Universal I/R Tool – A single, expendable plastic tool is used
for both insertion and removal of contacts.

Insert Polarization – Alternate insert clocking positions aid
in mating of adjacent connectors having identical insert

Closed-Entry Socket Insert – Hard dielectric socket face
has lead-in chamfers for positive alignment of pins (even
partially bent within pre-established limits) with sockets.

Interfacial Pin Insert Seal – Raised moisture barriers
around each pin, which mate into lead-in chamfers of hard
face socket insert, provide individual contact sealing.
Interfacial seal is never touched by service tools.

Elastomer Wire Sealing Grommet – Sealing over a wide
range of wire diameters is assured by a triple wire seal in
each cavity at the rear of the connector.

Superior Contact Stability – Rear release crimp contact
system features a stamped beryllium-copper retaining clip
captivated by molded-in shoulders of each contact cavity in
the insulator. A rear-inserted M81969 plastic tool expands
the tines beyond the shoulder, releasing the contact.
