Connectors resist specified immersions in MIL-PRF-7808,
MIL-PRF-23699, MIL-PRF-5606, M2-V Chevron oil, Coolanol
25, MIL-DTL-83133 (JP-8), MIL-DTL-5624 (JP-4, JP-5),
SAE-AMS1424 Type I, and other solvents and cleaning agents.
RFI and EMI attenuation at the specified frequencies meet
the requirements of MIL-DTL-38999.
- RFI shielding effectiveness of mated connectors with RFI
backshells is measured in a triaxial radio frequency leakage
- EMI shielding effectiveness is measured at the interface
of mated connectors and tested by the mode-stirred
technique specified in method 3008 of MIL-STD-1344.
Wired, mated connectors with specified accessories
attached, shall meet the altitude-immersion test specified in
Maximum potential drop shall not exceed:
- Classes F and S = 1.0 millivolt.
- Class W = 2.5 millivolts, Class K = 10.0 millivolts
Shock and Vibration Requirements
Wired, mated connectors shall not be damaged, nor shall
there be a current interruption longer than one microsecond
when subjected to the following:
Pulse of approximate half sine wave of 300 G ±15 percent magnitude
with duration of 3±1 milliseconds applied in three axes.
High Impact Shock
When mounted as specified in MIL-S-901, grade A, a drop
of a 400 lb. Hammer from 1 foot, 3 feet and 5 feet applied to
connector in three axes, totaling nine impacts.
Wired and mated connectors withstand the following
- Sine vibration where connector samples with simulated
accessory load are subjected to simple harmonic motion
from 10 to 2,000 Hz in three mutually perpendicular axes,
in 20 minute sweeps, for 12 hours in each axis at velocity of
254 mm/sec from 10-50 Hz, displacement of 1.5 mm from
50-140Hz and acceleration of 60G from 140-2,000Hz.
- Random Vibration per MIL-STD-1344, method 205,
test condition V at ambient temperature and test
condition VI, Letter “J” at elevated temperature.
