MIL-DTL-55302 covers connectors (plugs and receptacles) for printed circuit board (PCB) subassemblies and their accessories, for use in high reliability single-sided printed wiring, double-sided printed wiring, and multilayer printed wiring applications. The materials used are also covered by MIL-DTL-55302 including those for the contacts, the plating and the plastic bodies.

Contact termination types relevant to this standard are crimp, dip solder, flex, hand solder, and wire wrap.

Lane Electronics offers the ITW McMurdo 801 series of two-part, two row PCB connectors designed to meet MIL-DTL-55302. We see them used primarily in military and aerospace applications where high resistance to vibration is essential. They are available in 7 male and female contact styles with up to 96 contacts.

In addition we have the 801CX series from Weald Electronics, also designed to meet MIL-C-55302. We can supply these with low frequency and mixed layout including 25A power contacts and coaxial inserts for frequencies up to 2GHz. 

We have ample stocks and can supply these MIL-DTL-55302 PCB connectors to order on short leadtimes.

As well as the ITW McMurdo 801 series and the 801CX series from Weald Electronics, we also offer the Nicomatic CMM series of 2mm pitch “hybrid” connectors designed to give users the ability to combine up to 120 high frequency, low frequency and high power contacts in a single housing. This allows designers to reduce the number of connectors which saves space, weight and overall product assembly time. 

Even though the number of potential contact arrangements runs into millions, we can generally supply these CMM series connectors to order within 7-10 days.
