NPFC - MIL-STD-1353
ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS, PLUG-IN SOCKETS AND ASSOCIATED HARDWARE, SELECTION AND USE OF
|Publication Date:||18 February 2014|
This standard establishes requirements for selection of electrical connectors, plug-in sockets and their associated hardware, shown in detail in appendix's A, B, C, D, E, and F, for use in military equipment. Included are the following:
a. Selected electrical connector types and associated hardware chosen jointly by the Departments of the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force for use in the design of military equipment.
b. Guides for the choice and application of electrical connectors and associated hardware for use in military equipment.
Purpose of standard. The purpose of this standard is to promote the use of standard parts for new equipment design. The standard parts cover the majority of uses and are arranged in a form for quick references and selection. The standard also directs the engineer to use standardized contact platings, shell platings and other characterizes for design consideration for similar type connectors. The applicable connector specification should be used for specific design details.
This standard is intended to be used as a guide to standard connector types. When an applicable standard does not exist for a particular connector this document can be used as an engineering guide... View More
This standard is intended to be used as a guide to standard connector types. When an applicable standard does not exist for a particular connector this document can be used as an engineering guide to specify preferred contact finishes, shell materials and finishes, and testing by referencing a similar connector or connector's listed in this document.View Less
