Connectors, contacts and associated hardware are intended for general military use as a system. Used as such, they are particularly suitable for light weight applications and corrosive environments where EMI shielding is required.
a. Connectors specified herein are not fully intermountable with those specified in MIL-C-81511 or MIL-DTL-38999. See detailed specification sheets to determine if these connectors will meet the desired mounting requirements.
b. Connectors specified herein are not intermateable with connectors from any other military specification, even though some of the internal components and subassemblies may be used by other connectors.
c. Connectors specified herein are not intended for use with accessory hardware configured with interfaces consisting of features constructed from a metal base material.
Restrictions of Use
a. Air Force - AS29600 Series B are not for use.
b. Army - AS29600 Series B are not for use.
c. Navy - Connectors specified herein are not for shipboard jacketed cable applications.
WARNING: AS29600 Series A Connectors are not intended for mating with AS29600 Series B Connectors. Doing so may result in damage to the contacts or the inserts of the connectors. It is specifically critical with shell sizes 10 and 11 when size 20 contacts are used and with shell size 20 and 21 when size 12 contacts are used. These connectors shall not be located next to each other in any application unless the shell keying has been selected to guarantee that the shells will never allow the mating process to begin. However, series A and B connectors are interchangeable.View Less
