The performance requirements specified herein cover an EMI (Electromagnetic interference) retention nut intended for use with a MIL-PRF-64266 or MIL-DTL-38999 connector receptacle in a fiber optic only application. This EMI retention nut is intended for the connector receptacle configuration used at the interface to a panel, console or equipment module. This EMI retention nut is used for interface with the connector receptacle on one end and with the fiber optic cabling within the panel, console or equipment module on the other end. The EMI retention nut may be used with a connector plug; however, is not intended to be used as part of the cable plant where exposed to mechanical and other environmental factors. The only environmental resistant features include ability to act as a waveguide to attenuate EMI penetration through the connector receptacle in addition to resisting corrosion in a corrosive (i.e., salt air) environment.
