Six Pin Receptacle
The cause of failure on an aircraft
external power receptacle connector is the coupling method between the
aircraft ground receptacle and the ground power plug. The physical
engagement of the electrical contact pins on the aircraft fixed connector
and the socket contacts on the ground supply free connector maintains the
external power connector's coupling causing this failure. The sphincter or
grabbing action of the high force socket contacts within the ground supply
free connector causes premature excess wear on the pin contacts contained in
the aircraft fixed connector. Additional failure is caused by the sheer
weight of the ground supply free connector, which pulls down on the
electrical interface causing arcing when the power is on. Replacement of
either the aircraft fixed connector and/or the ground supply free connector
is a significant loss to the airline and/or airport. The MS 90362-3
aircraft power saver receptacle shown above when combined with the MS
17845-1 shield shown below is the MS 90362-1 or Six Pin Receptacle with
Shield. The MS 3505-1 cover shown below combined with the MS 17845-1 shield
and MS 90362-3 Six Pin Receptacle is the MS 90362-4 or Six Pin Receptacle
with shield and cover. The MS 17845-1 shield or the MS 3505-1 cover can also
be purchased separately depending on your application requirements.
