The Mil C 5015 series of connectors widely used in both screw thread and bayonet coupling styles has established itself as the leading ‘heavy duty’ connector range used in a huge variety of applications including Military, Rail transportation, industrial, lighting and environmental.
The standard screw thread variant is typically available with crimp or solder contacts, whilst the extensive bayonet version has a ruggedised bayonet shell, and later variants incorporates many additional features including low fire hazard thermoplastic shells, low smoke, low halogen inserts, rail transportation specific insert and shell configurations, single power and Mil standard variants.
Triple start ACME style thread for rapid coupling. Extended length coupling nut with anti-rotation device. Dimensions generally conform to Mil-C-5015 specifications. Contact planforms, backshells & accessories common with ABCIRH range. Optional overmoulded coupling nut. Five key orientation with positive location feature.
ABBMS Bayonet connectors are based on Mil-C-5015 and conform to BS9522-F0032, and to VG 95234 (Germany). ABB Connectors feature bayonet lock coupling, crimp or solder contacts, protection against water ingress and excellent shielding and continuity characteristics between mated connectors by featuring sprung coupling nuts. The connectors feature polychloroprene insulators remaining flexible at temperatures up to 125°C.
The HTABB variant contact arrangements are available with high temperature insulators that can operate between - 40°C to + 190°C. (HTABBMS).
ABCIRH Series. The AB Connectors Industrial Range is based on the ABB MS Series.
To minimise wear caused by vibration and frequent coupling, the bayonet lock coupling features stainless steel pins at critical wear points of the cam track on the fixed connector. The ABCIRH connectors are manufactured with low fire hazard halogen free insulators as standard. This material has been independently tested and conforms to the most stringent requirements. ABCIRH connectors meet all the electrical, mechanical and environmental requirement of BS9522-F0032 and VG 95234.
A full range of back shells and accessories are available to meet the requirements of industrial applications including those of the Mass Transportation market.
ABCIRP connector series originates from Mil C 5015 and VG95234 specifications.
The connectors are intermateable and interchangeable with corresponding types, with the advantage of a low fire hazard thermoplastic insulator, removable for repositioning at an alternative orientation. Contacts are industry standard F80 type and are retained in the insulator by means of a unique beryllium copper spring clip. The ABCIRP connector range includes sealing features such as a stepped wire seal grommet which can remove the need to populate unused cavities with filler plugs. Crimp tooling is industry standard. Contacts are inserted and removed using simple hand tools.
The ABCIRP range of connectors are approved to French Rail specification N.F.F 61030.
SBMS (MS-E/5MS) connectors conform to the environmental requirements of US Specification MIL-C-5015 and BS9522-F0030. SBMS connectors are approved to the requirements of the RARDE (CH) 5MS specifications. SBMS connectors feature improved sealing characteristics of standard MIL-C-5015 connectors, and are intermateable and interchangeable with compatible types. SBMS connectors are shock and vibration proof, and are environmental and pressure sealed. Insulators are polychloroprene.
The HTSBMS variant contact arrangements are available with high temperature insulators that can operate between -40ºC to +190ºC. (HTABBMS)
UKAN connectors are designed in accordance with EL 1987,DEF 5321 and MIL-C-5015. High grade one piece resilient insulators feature an integral rubber retention system to accommodate rear insertion, the connectors feature front release crimp contacts. This series is available with special inserts which are kerosene resistant and immune to the disintegrating effects of ozone and U.V. light. The standard range features aluminium alloy shells, but a fire-resistant variant with steel shells is available and is capable of withstanding flame temperatures of 1100°C for 20 minutes.
Contact arrangements cover from 1 to 48 contacts in 11 shell sizes. A comprehensive range of outlet fittings is available.
