Connectors, Electrical, Circular, High Density, Quick Disconnect, Environment Resisting and Accessories, General Specification For
This specification covers four series of electrical connectors (plugs and receptacles) with removable crimp contacts and accessories (see 6.1). AS81511 connectors are not recommended for new design. All AS81511 detail sheets that specified class D and/or H have been cancelled without replacement, therefore all class D and H requirements have been deleted from this specification. Electrical, mechanical and environmental features of these connectors include:
Environment resisting at sea level and high altitude.
RFI/EMI (Radio Frequency Interference/Electromagnetic Interference) protection (includes shell to shell grounding spring members).
High density insert arrangements.
Low level circuit capabilities.
Fluid resistant class provided.
High temperature class provided.
Several voltage service ratings available.
Individual contact release from the rear of the connector (series 3 and 4 only).
The document is written to permit the cancellation and supersession of MIL-C-81511 with this document. It includes the qualifying activity requirements. Technical changes previously approved by the military Preparing Activity were added. Government documentation references have been removed.
