Mil-DTL-26482 Series I connectors are general purpose, environment resistant, miniature circular connectors with three-point bayonet-coupling and five-key polarization. Designed to meet the requirements of MIL-DTL-26482 Series I, conforming to JSS 50183 solder types, these connectors are widely used in applications calling for quick disconnect connectors.

These connectors are intermateable and interchangeable with all MIL-DTL-26482 connectors, These connectors are used worldwide in military and industrial applications and are available in a variety of sizes, styles and configurations.

26482 series I miniature circular bayonet-coupled solder connectors meet the most critical application needs. Design versatility and high reliability performance make this series ideal for environmental sealing.

Shell: Shell hardware is manufactured from aluminium alloy and cadmium plated with an olive drab chromate finish. This finish has excellent conductivity; it is non-reflecting and corrosion resistant. Black anodized finish and cadmium-free zinc-cobalt plating are available on request.

The shell styles consist of wall mount, box mounting receptacles, jam nut receptacles, cable mounting receptacles and straight plugs. Connectors are available in 9 shell sizes such as 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24.

Positive shell-to-shell keying is provided with keys and keyways in a choice of either normal (N) or any of the preferred alternate positions: W, X, Y and Z. This prevents and ensures mismating between shells of different orientations and overcomes the difficulties associated with rotated inserts and standard key/keyway orientation.

Spring tensions provided by a wave washer in the coupling ring ensures maintenance of inter facial seal between mating halves.

Insert and grommet: The insert and grommet are molded from resilient neoprene, offering high dielectric strength and resistance to oils, gasoline and low temperature. This provides electrical isolation of the contacts in the insert and excellent moisture sealing. Available in large varieties with contacts ranging from 2 to 61.

Contacts: Gold over nickel plated pin and socket contacts are machined from brass and designed for solder connections.
