Glenair manufactures two versions of the MIL-DTL-55116 audio connector: a standard-performance QPL solution, and an intermateable advanced-performance MCOTS derivative with:

  • Low contact resistance: less than 10 milliohms
  • IP68 rated sealing in mated and unmated condition
  • 1,000 hour+ salt spray corrosion resistance
  • Integrated EMI ground spring provides improved 2.5 milliohm shell-to-shell conductivity performance
  • Integrated cable shield termination band porch
  • Superior 100 pound cable pull test rating
