This specification covers three series of environment resisting, circular, miniature electrical connectors (plugs and receptacles) with removable crimp and/or nonremovable solder contacts, and accessories. The connectors are only recommended for replacement and are not specified for aircraft applications (refer to AS50881).
This specification covers environment-resisting, quick disconnect, EMI/RFI shielded and non-shielded umbilical, electric connectors and adapter assemblies with removable crimp or nonremovable solder-type contacts and accessories. Connectors are rated for operation from -55 °C (-67 °F) to 200 °C (392 °F). Adapter assemblies are rated for operation from -55 °C (-67 °F) to 125 °C (257 °F). The upper temperature is the maximum internal hot spot temperature resulting from any combination of electrical load and ambient temperature.
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is intended to document and provide access to information obtained by an industry survey. It summarizes and documents data regarding possible alternatives to the use of cadmium plating on general connectors and connector accessories typically used in aerospace and military defense electrical interconnect systems.
