Mill-Max Crimp Receptacles
The new Mill-Max crimp receptacles are COTS alternatives to the popular mil-spec M39029 female crimp terminals.
Mill-Max announced the addition of new crimp receptacles to its selection of wire termination products. The new 07XX series are commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) alternatives to the popular mil-spec M39029 female crimp terminals. The receptacles are fitted with the high-reliability Mill-Max spring finger contacts in place of the slit and hooded terminals which characterize the M39029 products. If an application does not demand mil-qualified components but requires a similar form factor and high reliability, then these receptacles are ideal.
There are five new receptacles to choose from; all are two-piece construction consisting of a precision-machined outer shell and a stamped beryllium copper internal contact. Each has an inspection hole for viewing the wire during the crimping process and for promoting plating coverage inside the crimp hole. All plating options have a nickel underplate.
The 07XX series mates with Mill-Max’s recently introduced M39029 COTS-equivalent crimp pins (39XX series) as well as mil-spec M39029 pins (sizes 12, 14, 16, 20, and 22). When used together they provide an interconnect solution with wire crimp termination for discrete wires or cables. This new family of receptacles provides crimp termination of wire sizes from 28 – 12 AWG.
These crimp receptacles are convenient and simple to use. Since they conform to the dimensions of the mil-spec parts, the same crimp tooling can be used to terminate the wires.
