Military Connectors (MIL-C-5015)
TPC’s Circular Connectors are designed and manufactured to MIL-C-5015 standards to operate in most environmental conditions. This connector style has been used in the military for over 50 years with a proven track record. The design is well suited to commercial applications where a rugged threaded connector is required.
TPC has taken the standard MIL-C-5015 design and developed a new mechanical back shell that incorporates a sealing grommet and strain relief for added cable life. TPC has also developed a fully over-molded offering to ensure a completely sealed and permanent tamper proof solution for the application where needed. The shell design is a machined aluminum incorporating a low profile design and a reduced overall length for close quarter installations.
There are over 180 contact layouts available ranging from 1 to 65 positions and up to 150 amps per contact. The standard MIL-C-5015 layouts allow the mixing of power and signal contacts, power only or signal only. Contact sizes range from size 20 AWG up to 1/0.
The combination of TPC’s High Performance Cable, the proven reliability of the MIL-C-5015 connector, and the Flex/Strain Relief of our new back shell design makes for an unbeatable system.
