A new addition to the Advanced Military Connector range, the AMC Series T 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 agricultural vehicles.
