MIL-DTL-5015 Series III

The MIL-DTL-5015 Series III connectors provide aerospace performance and reliability for general purpose power inter-connection requirements. Originally a World War II solder connector, its revision since then has resulted in a 5015 series of widespread use in applications requiring gauges 0 to 16. There are 19 shell sizes from size 8 to 40, with over 159 approved insert arrangements per MIL-STD-1651, incorporating 1 to 854 box mount, cable connecting and jam nut receptacles, and standard or self-locking plugs. The hard plastic socket interface features the chamfered conical entry that aids in the proper mating of contacts. The fluorosilicone interfacial seal has conical risers around each pin contact, that compress into the socket interface, assuring the seal of the mating surface. Various shell materials and finishes are available.
