Rectangular Connectors: Glenair Micro-D

Used in rugged and harsh environments, rectangular connectors offer design flexibility and ease of use as their advantage over other connector shapes.

Rectangular connectors are most often used industrial automation, robotics, machine building, transportation-rail, and power creation.

Today, we are taking a deeper dive into Glenair’s Micro-D Connectors


Glenair MIL-DTL-83513 Micro-D Connectors

MIL-DTL-83513 allows the use of low-cost stamped contacts; however, the Glenair Micro-D connector features the high-performance TwistPin contact system. Glenair M83513 connectors are 100% Made in USA. Glenair’s industry-leading Micro-D capacity and capabilities offer quick worldwide access to the full range of QPL items. In addition to the general specification, MIL-DTL-83513 contains a total of 33 Detail Specification Sheets, nicknamed “slash sheets” because a forward slash is used in the numbering system.

Being only 20 miles away from Glenair’s headquarters, Air Electro is the leading authorized distributor for all the Glenair connector needs.


MIL-DTL-83513/01 & /02 Micro-D

 

 

This series is solder cup terminated featuring a metal shell. It also features gold-plated TwistPin non-removable contacts for solder termination to AWG #26 or smaller wire.


MIL-DTL-83513/03 & /04 Micro-D

(Pre-Wired Crimp Terminated, Metal Shell Connector)

 

 

These connectors feature gold-plated TwistPin contacts and mil spec crimp termination. Specify aluminum shells for best availability. 100% tested and backpotted, ready for use. For lightest weight and smallest diameter, select M22759/33 space grade insulated wire.


MIL-DTL-83513/06 & /07 Micro-D

(Solder Cup Terminated, Plastic Shell Connector)

 

 

Plastic Shell Solder Cup M83513 Connectors feature goldplated TwistPin non-removable contacts for solder termination to AWG #26 or smaller wire. These all-plastic connectors are more economical, lighter and smaller than metal shell versions.


MIL-DTL-83513/08 & /09 Micro-D

 (Pre-Wired Crimp Terminated, Plastic Shell Connector)

 

Micro-D Pre-Wired Pigtail connectors feature gold-plated TwistPin contacts and mil spec crimp termination. 100% tested and backpotted, ready for use. For lightest weight and smallest diameter, select M22759/33 space grade insulated wire.

(Condensed Right Angle PCB Terminated)

 

 

High-performance connectors feature gold-plated TwistPin contacts for best performance. PC tails are .020 inch in diameter. Specify nickel-plated shells or cadmium plated shells for best availability. Solder-Dipped terminals are coated with Sn60/Pb40 tin-lead solder for best solderability.


MIL-DTL-83513/16 Thru /21 Micro-D BR

Right Angle PCB Terminated Connector

 

 

These high-performance connectors feature gold-plated TwistPin contacts for best performance. PC tails are .020 inch diameter. Specify nickel-plated shells or cadmium plated shells for best availability. Solder-Dipped terminals are coated with Sn60/Pb40 tin-lead solder for best solderability.


MIL-DTL-83513/22 Thru /27 Micro-D BS

Straight PCB Terminated Connector

 

 

These high-performance connectors feature goldplated TwistPin contacts for best performance. PC tails are .020 inch diameter. Specify nickel-plated shells or cadmium plated shells for best availability. Solder-Dipped terminals are coated with Sn60/Pb40 tin-lead solder for best solderability.


MIL-DTL-83513/28 Thru /33 Micro-D CBS

Condensed Straight PCB Terminated Connectors

 

 

These space-saving connectors take up less room on the PC board. PC tail spacing is .075 inch (1.9mm) between rows. This series also features threaded inserts. Stainless steel inserts are insert molded into plastic trays. These inserts provide a ground path from the PC board to the mating cable. Solder-Dipped terminals are coated with Sn60/Pb40 tin-lead solder for best solderability.
