MIL-DTL-12883 (M12883) Relay Sockets and Accessories
MIL-DTL-12883 (M12883) covers a wide variety of relay sockets and accessories for plug-in electronic
components. These relay sockets are commonly used in military and commercial aerospace applications, as well
as being useful in many other industries. MIL-DTL- 12883 relay sockets use M39029 contacts to increase
standardization, and their interfaces are sealed to prevent air paths and moisture from lowering performance.
Fixed or loose studs made from either stainless or cold-rolled steel are available for mounting these relay sockets.
MIL-DTL-12883 components achieve relay-to- socket positive polarization through specific contact configurations
and/or the use of polarizing pins. Depending on style and configuration, these sockets are available for operation
in the 2A to 25A range. Various available styles include:
- Low Profile
- Extended Height
- Board Mounted
- Track Mounted
- Solder Termination
