Wired, mated connectors with specified
attached, shall meet the altitude-immersion test specified
MIL-DTL-26482 Series 2.
Connectors resist specified immersions
(lubricating oil), MIL-PRF-23699 (lubricating oil),
MIL-PRF-5606 (hydraulic fluid), M2-V Chevron oil,
Coolanol 25, ASTM D4814 (gasoline), SAE-AMS1424 Type
(defrosting fluid), MIL-DTL-5624 (JP-5), and solvents
specified in Method 215 of MIL-STD-202.
Mated connectors withstand a minimum
of 250 mating
cycles for RFI plug (MS3475) and 500 cycles for standard
Shock and Vibration Requirements
Wired, mated connectors shall not
be damaged, coupling
ring shall not loosen, and there shall be no interruption
electrical continuity longer than one microsecond when
subjected to the following:
Mated connectors withstand a pulse of approximate half
sine wave of 300 G magnitude with duration of three
milliseconds applied in each direction of the three
Mated connectors withstand the following
- Random vibration per MIL-STD-202,
method 214, test
condition II, letter J.
RFI attenuation at the specified frequency meets the
requirements of MIL-DTL-26482 Series 2.
- RFI shielding effectiveness of mated connectors
RFI backshells is measured in a triaxial radio frequency
- With RFI spring fingers, the maximum potential
shall not exceed 5 millivolts.
- Without spring fingers, the maximum potential
shall not exceed 200 millivolts.
