Clam-shell closure locks automatically when two halves are snapped together and cannot disengage accidentally since all three latch pawls must be lifted simultaneously to disengage the latch.
Visual inspection from a distance provides positive indication that the closure is fully engaged and securely locked.
The safety device is provided to help prevent mis-installation. The safety device cannot be engaged unless the coupling has been completely closed.
Axial adjustment 1/4" angular misalignment is ±4° for full couplings.
Meets Military/Commercial Requirements
Coupling design conforms to and has been qualified to all applicable military and commercial specification requirements for flexible fuel couplings, environmental control systems or potable water systems.
Protection is provided to at least 1500 amperes when tested per MIL-STD-1757A, method T03 using current component B waveshape.
Electrical bonding to class "S" of MIL-B-5087B is automatically provided when the coupling is assembled.
