ESD Protected Connectors

Protection from Electrostatic Discharge

filter ESDAmphenol has developed cylindrical and rectangular connectors which protect sensitive components from Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) without diodes, varistors, gas tubes, or “experimental” semi-conductive materials.

These connectors utilize the Faraday Cage principle to shunt electro­static discharge events to the conductive enclosure on which the con­nector is mounted, thus never allowing the high voltage, high current discharge event to reside on any contacts.

The ESD protected connectors have the same physical envelope as their standard counterparts, and do not require special mounting or ter­minating techniques. All of the contacts remain fully functional, and electrical characteristics such as capacitance are not effected.

EMI/EMP Filter Protection Connectors

filter groupAmphenol® EMI/EMP Filter Connectors offer the versatility of standard connectors with EMI/EMP protection for sensitive circuits. Internal housing of the EMI/EMP filter devices eliminates costly and bulky exterior discrete protection devices. Virtually all major MIL-Spec circulars can be incorporated with filter devices:

  • MIL-DTL-38999
  • MIL-DTL-5015
  • MIL-DTL-26482
  • MIL-DTL-27599
  • MIL-DTL-83723
  • MIL-DTL-26500

FJT - MIL-DTL-38999, Series II

FJTThe Amphenol® FJT Series space and weight saving design, coupled with a filter, gives high reliability.



  • Intermateable with MIL-DTL-38999/27599 Series II connec­tors
  • Quick positive coupling – 3 point bayonet locking
  • Error-proof alternate positioning of shell keyways
  • Higher reliability and greater durability with permanently encapsulated contacts
  • Environmental resistant
  • Aluminum shells with several finish options

FLJT – MIL-DTL-38999, Series I

FLJTThe Amphenol® FLJT Series offers all the design features of the FJT plus a 100% “scoop-proof” contact protection design.



  • Intermountable with MIL-DTL-38999/27599 Series I connec­tors
  • Contact Protection - shell design prevents contact damage
  • Quick Positive Coupling – 3 point bayonet locking
  • Higher reliability and greater durability with permanently encapsulated contacts
  • Environmental Resistant
  • Aluminum shells with several finish options
  • Error-proof alternate positioning of shell keyways
  • Corrosion Resistant - 500 hour salt spray olive drab cad­mium over nickel plating, class T (aluminum), electroless nickel plating, class F (aluminum) or stainless steel shells

FTV, FCTV MIL-DTL-38999 Series III

FTVThe Amphenol® FTV Series III, demonstrates unsurpassed technical leadership. With added filter features, the high performance general duty threaded connector is designed to withstand the pressures of severe environment applications. The FCTV Series is the Composite Series III with filtering for EMI/EMP protection. It offers the same high performance as its metal counterpart, the FTV, but with a lightweight, corrosion resistance shell.

FTV & FCTV Composite Intermateable with MIL-DTL-38999 Series III Connectors


  • Quick Mating - completely mates in a 360° turn of the cou­pling nut
  • Lockwiring Eliminated - incorporates anti-decoupling device
  • Contact Protection - 100% “scoop-proof”
  • Improved Moisture Resistance - prevents electrolytic erosion of contacts
  • Lightweight Composite Shell - 17% – 70% weight savings over metal
  • Corrosion Resistant - available in standard MIL-DTL-38999 olive drab cadmium (175°C) and electroless nickel plating (200°C), both withstanding 2000 hours of salt spray expo­sure. The base material is able to withstand an indefinite exposure to salt spray.
  • Durability - 1500 couplings minimum (in reference to connec­tor couplings, not contacts)
