Title
Connectors, Fiber Optic, Advanced, Circular or Rectangular, Plug and Receptacle, Environment Resistant, Removable Termini/Contacts, General Specification For
Scope
This specification covers the performance requirements for a plug and receptacle. The connector inserts may contain multiple termini or multiple termini and electrical contacts. The connectors use removable termini, or removable termini and electrical contacts, and are capable of operating within a temperature range of -65 to +200 °C (see 1.2.1.1). These connectors are supplied under AS9100 reliability assurance program. An Amendment corresponding to this standard is available at <a href="/servlets/productDetail?PROD_TYP=STD&PROD_CD=AS5590_A1">AS5590_A1</a>
Rationale
Users have identified a need for connectors with the capability to accommodate both fiber optic termini and electrical contacts, which requires the modification of this document to include the electrical requirements from MIL-DTL-38999. Some specification and paragraph references have been updated and all changes from Amendment A1 have been incorporated.
