    Mil spec generally indicates a couple of details not part of a component's "industrial" grade specs.

    Testing, to start. Adds labor, and thus cost. Will be indicated by a numeric code for that testing spec.

    Operating-temperature range. MIl spec will be a wider range of cold to hot over which the part is guaranteed to still perform.

    This is generally achieved by batch-testing what comes off the production line and sending the parts that flunk to the "industrial-spec" bin. Again, added labor and cost.

    Never knew a component source who would conceal this kind of official qualification.

    "Mil-Spec" sounds impressive ......until you've been in the military and had to use it.

    Never forget. "Mil-spec" also means "low bidder".
