  • MIL-DTL-23482 MIL-C-26482 Circular Military Connector
MIL-DTL-26482 Connector


MIL-DTL-26482 connectors offer high density contact arrangements in a miniature circular metal shell. They use a quick disconnect bayonet coupling for rapid positive mating and are environmentally sealed.

There are three series of MIL-DTL-26482 connectors that are commonly used:

  • MIL-DTL-26482 Series I Solder
  • MIL-DTL-26482 Series I Crimp
  • MIL-DTL-26482 Series II Crimp

  • Common Features

    Rugged Shell
    Aluminium-alloy shell and hardware create a rugged connector with minimal weight. These connectors have been extensively used in commercial, military and aerospace environments. Standard shells accept all MIL-DTL-26482 accessories.

    Good Current and Voltage Capabilities
    Up to 22 Amps with wire gauges from size 24 up to size 16AWG wire. Some are rated at 1500 V AC and others at 2300 V AC (at sea level).

    Environmentally Sealed on Four Levels
    A complete environmental seal is achieved via a number of individual seals a various points. They use separate individual wire sealing grommet on the rear, through which each wire is fed. The rear grommet is compressed by the back shell to achieve a seal there. A “J” type gland sealing back shell is also available as an option to give a higher level of protection (recommended for high pressure jets of water).

    Wide Temperature Range
    These connectors will operate in temperatures from -55° to + 125°C under the harshest possible conditions.
