Specification requirements for greater reliability in a shorter, lighter weight environmental resistant connector led to the design of the MS-R. MS Class R connectors satisfy all the performance requirements of MIL-DTL- 5015.
This low profile assembly was attained by moving the axial compression nut and grommet assembly forward and flush with the rear of the insert. The neoprene grommet, with its low coefficient of friction, assures easier threading of wire bundles and quicker assembly and serviceability of the unit. Molded webs in each wire hole insure a moisture barrier around each wire.
The addition of an "O" ring at the main joint of a MS3106R plugs provide a main joint seal supplementary to the interfacial seal, thus insuring a higher degree of reliability when connector halves from different sources are employed. MS-R types are recommended for new design applications.
Shell components are fabricated from high grade aluminum alloy. All components have the standard electrically conductive cadmium plated finish with an olive drab chromate after-treatment for corrosion resistance. Consult Amphenol, Sidney, NY for other plating options.
Contacts are machined from copper alloy for maximum corrosion resistance, maximum current carrying capacity and low millivolt drop. Both crimp and solder versions are available. Refer to pages 49, 67 and 68 for additional contact information.
Resilient neoprene inserts provide an outstanding moisture barrier, high dielectric strength, and resistance to vibration. Either pin or socket insert can be pressurized.
