M83723 series III is a high-density military cylindrical connector with two coupling styles: bayonet and threaded plugs and receptacles.
It was designed for rugged use and high-temperature environments for both commercial and military aerospace applications.
Both coupling styles inter-mate with MIL-DTL-26500 connectors (the exception being shell size 8 threaded does not mate with 26500 threaded).
Shell sizes range from the small size 8 to the largest size 28 with over 30 insert arrangements available. Shell material options are aluminum and a passivated stainless steel, and a high-temperature firewall version with plating options of electroless nickel, olive drab cadmium and black anodized.
Other finishes are available as a commercial offering.
The standard contacts used are AS39029 crimp with a rear release system featuring a stamped retaining clip captivated by molded-in shoulders of each contact cavity in the insulator, resulting in a very stable contact.
Contact sizes range from 20 on the small end to a large size 12. PC tail contacts are available as a commercial offering.
Alternate keyway positions (from normal (N) to 6,7,8,9 & 10) prevent cross mating of adjacent connectors having the same insert arrangement.
