About Mil-Spec Connectors, Backshells, and Dust Caps
Mil-spec connectors are an important part of electronic components when building aerospace and defense harness applications. WireMasters stocks a variety of these connectors such as pins, contacts, tinel locks, ground straps, sealing plugs, terminal lugs, receptacles, and more. Our most popular connector series is the military specification MS27466 which is a front wall mount receptacle.
WireMasters provides a variety of backshell options available in an assortment of angles; straight, 45 degrees, and 90 degrees. Our advanced backshell line is built to comply with strict military standards and specifications with special locking technologies to provide superior strain relief, EMI protection, and band locks to our customer’s applications. We even carry the new Amphenol PCD Alumalight backshell which is a high-quality lightweight metal backshell option that offers superior EMI performance.
Mil-spec rated Dust Caps protect and plug connectors and other harnessing components from physical damage. The cap works as a sealant against particles, moisture, and other possible contaminations.
