The term Amphenol connector is adopted in electrical engineering subdomains where a distinguishing connector frequently used in that domain is primarily sourced from (or invented by) the Amphenol Corp. Thus, the term means different things to different engineers.
The Amphenol connector referred to may be one of:
- MIL-DTL-5015 / MIL-C-5015, a circular connector
- MIL-DTL-26482 / MIL-C-26482, a circular bayonet connector
- RJ21, used in aggregated telecommunications cabling
- ARINC 828, a repurposing of MIL-DTL-38999.
- UHF connector, a threaded RF coaxial connector
- A circular connector, usually consisting of 6, 9 or 11 pins, used to connect a Hammond Organ to a Leslie speaker.
