Build to Print Mil-Spec Connectors

SCHOTT offers hermetically sealed standard military spec and custom-made connectors for defense and aerospace applications, which are made to meet high requirements in terms of ruggedness and reliability, such as resistance to high pressure and temperature cycling.


  • High quality standard mil-spec connectors: circular and rectangular connectors.
  • Custom-made connectors: with special flanges, custom contact configuration, single glass beads for high pressure applications, double-ended military electrical feedthroughs.
  • Value-added services including wire harnesses, PC boards (both commercial and defense), or welding services, offering a one-piece construction thereby helping our customers to reduce a weld operation and at the same time offer a much more robust part.



Defense and aerospace applications, such as MIL-C-5015, MIL-C38999, or MIL-C-26482 commercial equivalents, for example:

  • (Pressure) sensors
  • Transducers
  • Piezo electronics
  • Vibration sensors products for use in monitoring, e.g. gas detection
