Standardized Rack & Panel Solution for Harsh Environments

January 2024

Harsh environments require interconnect solutions that are up to the challenge. For the the extreme conditions seen in the defense industry, specifically in mil-aero applications, mechanical and electric connections are required for avionics equipment to function as intended. 

Ruggedized Connector Series for Mil-Aero Applications

Some of the conditions these interconnect solutions face include high temperatures, humidity, vibration and even corrosion. Radiall’s MPX Series provides a reliable blind-mate solution for these extreme conditions.

The MPX Series has served as a ruggedized connector for Rack & Panel applications for over 30 years. When it comes to high density and dependability for harsh environments, the MPX Series is ideal for new installations or retrofits on military aircraft, helicopters, radios, radar and ground vehicles.
