The shell material is an aluminum alloy, with plating options ranging from black zinc nickel (Z), olive green cadmium (B), Nickel (F), and hard anodized (C), all conductive finishes that provide electrical continuity between the mated shells prior to contact engagement.
A variety of shell types are available, including square flange receptacle (both front and rear mount with or without accessory threads), in line receptacle (with accessory threads), plug with or without RFI shielding, and jam nut receptacle (with accessory threads).
D38999 Series II includes rear release, removable pin or socket contacts with crimp termination (AS39029).
