Weight / Cost-Saving Dummy Contact Sealing Plugs (DCSP)

For reliable sealing of unused contact cavities—without the use of electrical contacts

„„ Powerful tool in Electrical Wire Interconnect System weight reduction „„ Eliminates use of expensive electrical contacts for sealing-only applications „„ Leverages connector contact clip for secure retention of the sealing plug—no FOD

T he use of color-coded M27488 type plastic sealing plugs in unused contact cavities is a requirement in all environmental interconnect applications (IAW NA01-1A-505-1, WP 007 00 or 020 00). Conventional sealing plugs, combined with the connector grommet seal, provide reliable dust and moisture ingress protection. But common contact sealing plugs still require that a properly-sized electrical contact be first inserted into the cavity, followed by the plastic plug. Glenair innovative Dummy Contact Sealing Plugs (DCSP) eliminate the need to use expensive electrical contacts as part of the sealing regimen. Fast and easy-to-install, these longer form-factor Dummy Contact Sealing Plugs (DCSP) are a one-piece solution to contact cavity sealing that results in significant weight reduction, material cost reduction, and assembly labor. Available in Size #22 to Size #8, for connector series D38999, EN4165, Series 800 Mighty Mouse, EN4644 and ARINC 600, Glenair Dummy Contact Sealing Plugs reduce weight as much as 90% compared to conventional contact/sealing plug configurations.
