SAE AS81582 (MIL-C-81582)
SAE AS81582 covers quick disconnect, environmentally resistant umbilical electric connectors and adapter
assemblies used by the United States Armed Forces in aviation applications such as fuel pod and ordinance
umbilical wiring assemblies. These connectors and adapter assemblies are constructed with either removable
crimp or non-removable solder-type contacts.
Some of the SAE AS81582 components A.E. Petsche carries include:
- Electrical Connector Umbilical Receptacle with bayonet coupling and jam nut mounting
- Electric Connector Plug with bayonet coupling, lanyard release, and RFI shielding
- Cable-to-Electric Connector Adapter with RFI shielding
- Electrical Connector-to-Electrical Connector Adapter with RFI shielding (right angle)
SAE AS81582 components are resistant to Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and Electro Magnetic Interference
(EMI). They achieve environmental resistance from grommet seals, potted seals, or insert seals with gland seal
for jacketed cable.
SAE AS81582 connectors are rated for operation from −55°C to 200°C* (−67°F to 392°F*), and adapter
assemblies are rated for operation from −55°C to 125°C* (−67°F to 257°F*).
*The upper temp is the maximum internal hot spot temp resulting from any combination of ambient temp and
