High-Performance Backshells Out-perform Commonly Used Alternatives

Tyco Electronics (TE), one of the leading global providers of engineered electronic components, connectors and network solutions, introduces a new high-performance family of backshells called FlexiScreen, designed to provide a light-weight solution for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) protection for both commercial and military applications.

FlexiScreen backshells represent a significant improvement over pig-tail termination methods by providing 360-degree EMC shielding on the termination area of each individual cable. The backshell terminations can be installed to allow the cable bundle to be formed at various angles, such as 30 and 45 degrees, using a single backshell design.

The new backshells capitalize on proven performance of existing HexaShield adapter components. FlexiScreen backshells are a light-weight, repairable, cost-effective solution, designed to be mounted on MIL-DTL-38999, 83723, 26482, 5015 or commonly used connectors.

The backshells are available in either an aluminum alloy or stainless steel with the choice of star configurations to fit your application. Finish types available are cadmium olive drab to SAE-AMS-PQ-P-416 or electroless nickel to SAE-AMS-C-26074 Class 3, Grade B. Other finishing types are also available.
