MIL-DTL-83522 (M83522) Fiber Optic Connectors
Operating Temperature: -46°C (-51°F) to +85°C (+185°F)
Mating Durability: 500 cycles
Locking Models: ANX, ANY
Non-Locking Models: DNX, DNY
Offering a unique combination of ruggedness and durability, MIL-DTL-83522 (M83522) single ferrule, fiber optic
ST connectors feature an individually-mounted connector system that is highly resistant to shock, vibration,
chemically-induced corrosion, and extreme temperature changes. The connectors are suitable for use in a wide
range of aerospace, marine, and land-based applications – particularly those where harsh and/or unpredictable
operating conditions will be encountered.
M83522 connectors are compatible with a variety of fiber optic cables and are available with either a locking or
non-locking model orientation. The locking models feature washers that are designed to prevent optical
disconnects during periods of high vibration and/or shock. The non-locking models are also equipped with a high-
performance spring that does the same. Both models include a screw-on boot feature that completely eliminates
any requirement for a boot tool. M83522 connectors can be used with a broad range of legacy systems and
feature a keyed bayonet latch design that allows for quick and easy engagement.
