SEALED ENGINE CONNECTORS

TE Connectivity (TE)'s 983 series connector was created in the 90’s. This connector has been especially designed for harsh environment aircraft zone applications such as engines and boosters. Available in two versions, this connector is used in its stainless steel version on harsh constraint-facing areas such as engines, landing gears, APU (Auxiliary Power Unit), wings, pylons, leading edges whereas the aluminum version is used in cargo compartments. Qualified to EN2997 specification for its stainless steel and aluminum version, TE’s DEUTSCH 983 series is also qualified to ADS (Aerospace Defense and Security) ESC10, Boeing BACC63 and Airbus ABS specifications. In addition, these connectors are fully intermate-able with MIL-DTL-83723 Series III connectors. These connectors use contacts qualified to the EN3155 and ADS ESC30 specifications.
