Series 806 Mil-Aero Micro Miniature Connectors and Cable Assemblies

Series 806 Mil-Aero Micro Miniature Connectors and Cable Assemblies

Advanced Electrical, Mechanical and Environmental Performance plus Reduced Size and Weight Compared to D38999

Meets every MIL-DTL-38999 Performance Specification

Series 806 offers significant size and weight savings while meeting key performance benchmarks for a broad range of applications such as commercial and military aerospace, industrial robotics, transportation systems and more. Designed for general use in harsh vibration, shock and environmental settings — as well as high-altitude, unpressurized aircraft zones with aggressive voltage ratings and altitude immersion standards — the Series 806 Mil-Aero features numerous mechanical design innovations including durable mechanical insert retention, radial seals and triple-ripple grommet seals. Its reduced thread pitch and re-engineered ratchet prevent decoupling problems, particularly in small shell sizes, solving one of the major problems of shell size 9 and 11 MIL-DTL-38999 Series III connectors.

  • Next-generation small form factor aerospace-grade circular connector
  • Designed for general use in harsh application environments such as aircraft, industrial robotics and more
  • Upgraded environmental, electrical and mechanical performance
  • Integrated anti-decoupling technology
  • Higher density 20HD and 22HD contact arrangements
  • Glass hermetic, lightweight aluminum hermetic, high-temperature, fiber optic, and filtered versions
  • High-Speed configurations with El Ochito octaxial contacts. Available turnkey factory terminated pigtail and jumper assemblies

The Series 806 Mil-Aero is an aerospace-grade micro miniature circular connector with triple-start threaded coupling. The 806 connector is smaller and lighter than conventional aerospace connectors. Featuring size 22HD, 20HD contacts plus size 8 power and high speed El Ochito®, quadrax, and fiber optic options. The Series 806 offers up to twice the number of contacts with no reduction in performance than MIL-DTL-38999 Series III. In fact, independent laboratory testing has demonstrated that the Series 806 meets, and in many cases exceeds, the requirements of MIL-DTL-38999.

But there is more to the 806 than just size and weight reduction. This flight-proven high-performance connector has many innovative features that meet the most aggressive requirements of the military/aerospace industry, including better resistance to vibration-induced decoupling. This is accomplished by re-engineering the ratchet mechanism and introducing a shallower mating thread ramp angle than is available in D38999.

Glenair pioneered integral shield banding platforms to allow direct attachment of cable shields, boots and overmolds. This innovation continues with the 806 — Glenair's first connector to exclusively use the ultra lightweight Nano shield termination band for maximum size and weight reduction.

Another enhancement is a "top hat" insulator with raised bosses for foolproof alignment of insulator cavities and retention clips as well as higher voltage ratings.

The Series 806 Mil-Aero connector features an O-ring radial interface sealing design instead of a flat gasket. This allows for easier metal-to-metal coupling, improved sealing, and better EMI performance. The MIL-DTL-38999 Series III and other legacy aerospace circular connectors have a flat gasket inside the receptacle shell. This peripheral seal must be compressed sufficiently to allow full metal-tometal connector bottoming. In certain tolerance conditions this seal can make it difficult to fully mate the connectors "without the use of tools" as is required by MIL-DTL-38999.
