MIL-C-5015, MIL-C-26482, and MIL-C-26500 connectors are designated with an MS number such
as MS3101. MIL-C-81511, MIL-C-83723, and other later specifications identify the connector by the
specification number, a slash, and the connector number. For example: MIL-C-81511-3E">MIL-C-81511/3.
Rf connectors and coaxial cable assemblies are used to carry radio frequency (rf) power from one
point to another with a known rate of loss. Rf connectors are available as plugs, jacks, panel jacks, and
receptacles. Plugs and jacks are attached to the ends of coaxial cables; panel jacks and receptacles are
mounted to panels and chassis.
Baby N connector (BNC) series connectors are small, lightweight, and feature a quick
connect/disconnect, bayonet-lock coupling. The connectors use small rf cables such as RG-58/U or RG-
59/U and operate up to peak voltages of 500 volts. Manufacture is under Military Specification C-3608A
(MIL-C-3608A). Figure 1-25 shows three typical BNC connectors. Figure 1-26 shows you how to attach
BNC connectors to coaxial cable. Table 1-14 indicates which BNC connector to use with what coaxial
