They can also be put to use in marine, automotive, and aerospace applications. They have a single keyway, and a wide operating temperature range of -40 C to 105 C (-40 F to 221 F). They feature a rating of IP 67, for protection from dust and temporary immersion in water.

Mencom MIL-SPEC 5015 connectors are designed for plug and play capability, including pre-wired receptacles & over-molded cordsets.
