Amphenol 62GB Series Connectors

Amphenol 62GB and 162GB Connectors – Similar MIL-DTL-264822

62GB series is a miniature bayonet connector that features unique characteristics not seen any other connector series. This Pcd series is similar to MIL-DTL-26482 except it features a keyway orientation in order to reduce miss-mating between multiple connectors. 62GB connectors are most commonly used in military and industrial communication systems. These connectors feature aluminum shells with brass or stainless-steel.

Applications: Communications, Ships, Industrial Machines and Automations, Aviation, Cellular, Medical Devices.
