Which NATO plug UK or US\Nexus\U174U Mil(TP120 commercial plug)




PJ-068
GENERAL AVIATION MIC PLUG
This is the plug that's only used in aviation. The mating
shaft of the plug is 5.23mm

PJ-055
GENERAL AVIATION EARPHONE PLUG
The mating shaft of the plug is 6.35mm
Mil:M642/4-1, NSN:5935-00-192-4760.
You can buy a plug at any electronics store.


U-174/U TP120 (TP-101)
HELICOPTER HEADSET / HELMET PLUG
This is a NEXUS plug, not a NATO plug
(sometimes referred to as a US NATO plug)
and it is not compatible with the UK NATO
plug below. Wiring,
Tip(1) Mic low (2) Ear high (3) Mic high (4) Ear low





PLUG 671
UK or EUROPEAN NATO PLUG
This plug will not mate with the Nexus range, the
mating shaft diameter is 0.43 mm bigger. This is a
Mil spec brass plug, NSN:5935-99-946-6652. Wiring,
Tip Mic, Ring 1 Mic, Ring 2 Ear, Ring 3 Ear, (Ring 1
next to tip) Mating Socket 626, NSN:5935-99-949-1940

Be carefull we bought 2 ANR kits, integrated power & audio leads, + ship power units from Headset services Amarillo, And specified UK NATO connectors they were supplied with TP120 plugs, when querying we were told they were the same, on pointing out the discrepancies they appeared to not know & said they could not send correct parts as they could not source. Go figure!!!!
They offered to refund if we returned the goods to The US we are in the UK, & had fitted the wiring & units, this is not feasible so we will have to stand the hit, there were other problems as well.
