MIL-STD-1553

MilesTek - The Complete MIL-STD-1553 Source

For over 30 years, MilesTek has been a source for MIL-STD-1553 products. We are proud of our worldwide reputation for bus coupler, cable assemblies and connectors. We additionally offer military standard adapters, bulk cable, bus & scope test cables, bus & stub cables, relay devices, RFI dust caps, terminators, and tools & hardware. Items are in-stock and can ship same-day.
  1. Data Bus Couplers

    MilesTek stocks and offers the industry's most complete line of data bus couplers for MIL-STD 1553B, including box-style and in-line coupler designs. Configurations include one through eight stub box style couplers, one through four stub inline couplers and bus couplers kits.

  2. Bus and Stub Cable Assemblies

    MilesTek manufactures and stocks complete cable assemblies for data bus applications. These assemblies are built with standard and high-temperature twinaxial cable, standard plugs and right-angle plugs, solder / clamp or full crimp design, with or without bend reliefs, and bus scope test cables (that combine one center twinax cable and two coax cables).

  3. Connectors

    MilesTek stocks and offers solder/ clamp and full crimp TRB Connectors for the most popular 1553B Twinax cables, including (but not limited to) standard and right-angle male plugs, standard and bulkhead female jacks (insulated, non-insulated, feedthru, solder pot, and cable entry). Our large inventory allows for same day shipment of in-stock items.

  4. Terminators

    Bus terminators (78 ohm) are used at the end of each bus. Stub terminators (1000-3000 ohm) are used to simulate a future load from an unspecified device. Alternate terminators are available for laboratory use.

  5. Adapters

    Standard interseries TRB adapters are used to convert connection genders (i.e. male to female), extend the physical distance with cable assemblies, or both.

  6. Relay Devices

    Eliminate the task of manually switching cables using MilesTek Relay Devices. These act as on-off switches to connect and disconnect individual remote terminals or entire bus segments to/ from a bus network. Relay devices will reduce long-term wear and tear on data bus couplers and cables.

  7. Bus & Scope Test Cables

    These standard test cable assemblies are designed for implementation in laboratories and testing facilities. MilesTek also handles custom lengths for each assembly leg upon request. 

  8. Bulk Cable

    MilesTek stocks and offers both PVC (30-02001) and PFA (Teflon®) (M17/176-00002) jacketed Twinax Cable for lab and high temperature applications, respectively. Bulk spool reels and cut-to-length quantities are available for same day shipment.

  9. RFI Dust Caps

    RFI dust caps are used for protect open stub and bus jacks from dust, corrosion and radio-frequency interference. These dust caps are particularly useful in laboratory and long-term storage environments. 

  10. Tools & Hardware

    Center contact crimp tools, center contact positioners, bushing & shield crimp tool handles, die sets and M17/176-00002 cable splicing equipment can be found in this section (all sold separately).
