Definition of Mil Standard Connector

Consistent with the high standard tradition of military products, mil standard connectors are designed specifically for the needs of the armed forces for durable and reliable products. These connectors are of different shapes and sizes and they are used in many fields, from communications offices to the front lines of war to naval warships. Like warriors, mil standard connectors are designed to be robust and accurate.

The first mil standard connectors were developed for aviation and tactical service applications in the 1930s. The land-sea series (AN type) had a far-reaching impact on all the connectors and set standards for modern military circular connectors. These connectors, called mil standard connectors (MIL-STD), are often used in aviation, industry, navigation and automotive industries. The most common types of connectors for military applications include round (D38999) connectors or rectangular (M24308) connectors. Mil standard connectors reflect the military's emphasis on consistency, accuracy and strength. And in a series of applications, they have assisted the army, Navy and air forces in their operations. These connectors are manufactured in accordance with military specifications, and the military component codes printed along with them make them easy to identify and purchase in many commercial products.
