MIL-DTL-26482 relates to the requirements for miniature circular connectors and accessories which are designed to handle harsh environments while offering fast disconnect. Although designed initially for military applications, circular connectors meeting MIL-DTL-26482 are widely used in many power and signal applications across many industry sectors.
Our sister Lodge Group company Weald Electronics is well known for its high performance circular connectors including the bayonet coupling LMH Series connectors which are designed and manufactured to meet the requirements of MIL-DTL-26482. Some of you will know this standard as MIL-C-26482. Weald Electronics assembles these MIL-DTL-26482 circular connectors in the UK which means designers and buyers can get them to their own specification on very short lead times.
The LMH Series is intermateable with several other manufacturers’ MIL-DTL-26482 compatible circular connectors including the Amphenol 62GB and PT/PTSE, Souriau’s 851 and the ITT Cannon KPT.
