Torque, Threaded Application, Electrical Connector and Accessory Installation
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is intended to provide guidelines to tightening methods and torque values as applied to electrical connectors and related hardware. The connectors and associated hardware discussed herein, are typically manufactured from aluminum alloy, high grade engineering thermoplastics or corrosion resistant steel and typically plated with a protective/conductive coating. These guidelines may be used where no rules have been mandated either contractually or otherwise.
This document is to provide information regarding torque as applied to general use connectors and associated hardware, typically used in military defense electronics, weapon systems and military and commercial aerospace applications.
