High Shock and Vibration Quick-Release Connectors
Ideal for high shock/high vibration environments including military space and defense applications such as missile and payload deployment, the AS81703 provides jam-free, push-on, pull-off operation. Glenair's AS81703 Series 3 type connector series is intermateable and intermountable with currently available AS81703 mil-spec and commercial connectors, and offers several enhancements to the standard design: an integrated band porch for shield termination, 360° saw teeth for rear-end accessory clocking, and a red full-mate indicator stripe. The AS81703 Series 3 type connector is ideally suited for droppable stores, umbilical connect, rocket launch, and other extreme vibration and shock environments where rugged and reliable lanyard-release and push-pull mating is a must. Nineteen contact arrangements are available, including hybrid signal/power layouts, and a full complement of backshells and connector accessories is offered — with Glenair's high availability and quick delivery.
