mil 26482 plug receptacle connectors

Mil 26482 circular connectors are a family of miniature connectors with minimal weight featuring a quick release three-point bayonet. Available as MIL-DTL-26482, Pattern 105 and Pattern 602 for use in demanding and rugged applications such as military and commercial, especially where a higher contact density connector is required.

Two series are available, series I is compatible with VG 95328 and series II with standard accessory threads. The receptacles are hermetically sealed to provide a moisture barrier in bulkhead applications.
