D38999 Stainless Steel Connectors & Backshells

The TX Series of connectors is built to MIL-DTL-38999 Series III standards and will meet or exceed all of the specifications for performance and durability. The TX Series is our most technologically advanced series of cylindrical connectors available, and Milnec is proud to offer these popular connectors, backshells, and accessories in stainless steel for the toughest applications.

TX stainless steel connectors feature a 500-hour salt spray rating and a 392°F operating temperature. They can also be built to firewall specifications, which offer improved temperature capabilities for use in engine compartments or for any other application where the need to prevent emergency fire ingress is necessary. Firewall connectors are machined from passivated stainless steel and feature flame resistant inserts.

TX connectors can accommodate the highest density of contacts and feature the most comprehensive selection of contacts, including fiber optic, twinax, coax, quadrax, and PC tail contacts. Coupling is achieved with one 360° turn of the self-locking coupling ring, which is designed with triple-start, impact-resistant stub threads. Standard RFI grounding fingers provide superior shell-to-shell conductivity for shielded applications. For mission-critical applications that demand absolute reliability, TX Series connectors are the only choice.

For additional help in specifying your D38999 connector solution, please contact a Milnec sales professional, or your authorized distributor for technical and sales support.
