TE DEUTSCH ACT Series MIL-DTL-38999 Composite Connectors

INTERMATEABLE WITH SOURIAU CONNECTORS AND ALL
MIL-DTL-38999 SERIES III

TE Connectivity DEUTSCH ACT series MIL-DTL-38999 series III composite connectors offer high density contact arrangements in a miniature circular connector composed of composite materials. ACT connectors meet MIL-38999 and were originally designed as military and aerospace components. The TE DEUTSCH ACT series is now being used in many applications requiring extremely reliable interconnections. These TE DEUTSCH connectors are quick-mating, environmentally-sealed, triple-lead threaded, have a self-locking coupling, and are EMI-RFI-shielded. A variety of D38999 backshells are available. For full product details on the TE DEUTSCH ACT series MIL-DTL-38999 series III composite connectors, please see the specifications below.
