MIL-DTL-55116 audio connectors

Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products (formerly Spectrum Control Signal & Power integrity Group) has added a new design to its standard MIL-DTL-55116 capacitive filtered audio connectors. The new design offers ESD protection up to 8kV direct discharge and 15kV air discharge. Custom designs addressing other discharge requirements are available. These EMI-filtered, ESD-protected connectors are suitable for aviation, communication and security applications, where an electronic system using the audio connector might be exposed to ESD environments.

Spectrum's EMI-filtered audio connectors have a capacitance value range of 10pF to 1?F and are available in C and Pi circuit configurations. These connectors are waterproof and polarized, are offered in plugs and receptacles, and can be designed for special/selectively loaded EMI filtering. Spectrum's custom filtered audio connectors meet all the requirements of MIL-STD-810F including sand and dust, salt, fog, high altitude operation, fungus resistance and immersion to 20m.

The EMI-filtered, ESD-protected audio connectors have pricing that ranges from $20 to $150 depending on configuration and quantities required.
