Spectrum Control Modifies MIL-DTL-55116 Connectors

Spectrum Control, Inc. has modified the standard MIL-DTL-55116 connectors that are used in 60 volt audio frequency circuits with 0.5 Amps of current to provide effective EMI filtering. Spectrum’s connectors are waterproof and polarized, five or six pin electrical plugs/receptacles and can be designed for special & selectively loaded EMI filtering. These custom filtered connectors are ideal for military and civilian communication applications where harsh conditions are present.

Spectrum Control MIL-DTL-55116 ConnectorSpectrum’s custom EMI filtered audio connectors have a capacitance value range of 10pF – 1mF and are available in C & Pi circuit configurations. These custom filtered audio connectors meet all the requirements of MIL-STD-810F including sand & dust, salt, fog, high altitude operation, fungus resistance and immersion to 20 meters.

Spectrum Control’s custom EMI filtered audio connectors have pricing ranging from $20 to $150 depending on configuration and quantities required.
