ODU Connectors has introduced a new addition to its Advanced Military Connector range, the AMC Series T, which offers three locking variants in one connector.

The ‘T’ stands for Three-in-One or ‘Triple’ as three locking variants of plug can fit the same receptacle:
• Push-pull
• Break-away 
• Screw locking

The built-in trapezoidal thread with serration ensures additional safety.

Now OEM’s have a free choice of appropriate locking mechanism at each connection point, whilst retaining the same bulkhead connector across the equipment. 

The new ODU AMC Series T connector combines this increased flexibility and density together with proven durability and reliability - currently available in two shell sizes:
• Shell size 9 with up to 10 contacts
• Shell size 12 with up to 18 contacts

These contact densities are in shell-sizes that give space-envelope savings over comparable density MIL-DTL-38999M connectors but with the same, or improved, technical performance. 

The cable can use a standard MIL-M85049 back-shell, or an ODU over-mould. Crimp contacts can be standard MIL-AS39029, or ODU design. 

Key strengths:
• Protection to IP68 [testing to MIL-STD-810H] • High vibration resistance 
• Easy to assemble and install in the field
• Operating temperature range from -65°C to +175°C
• Available as a completely assembled system

As these connectors are impervious to water, dirt and dust and since the individual contacts can be replaced quickly and easily, the ODU AMC Series T is particularly suitable for use in military, security and communication technology, as well as for civilian applications such as heavy construction machinery and vehicles.
