Compaero Backshell and Accessory Documentation

Circular connector backshell

Non-Environmental Backshells

Non-Environmental connector backshells are used when there is a requirement for additional space between the rear of the connector and the strain relief to allow for cable service loops, jumping, filter networks, etc. They provide a mechanical strain relief for non-environmental applications.

Environment Backshells

Environmental Backshells

Environmental connector backshells protect the wiring side of the connector from dust, dirt, moisture and fluids. Almost all recent Military Specification cylindrical connectors are designed so that when the wires are inserted through the grommet, and assuming all holes in the grommet contain either a wire or a sealing plug, the connector will be environmentally sealed once the backshell or strain relief is secured.

EMI/RFI Non-Environmental Backshells

EMI/RFI Non-Environmental Backshells

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) are both causes of signal interference. When strong external noise fields exist, the conductors of a cable act as antennas and pick up the radiated signals. The reception of this interference results in inaccurate or interrupted data transmission. An effective shield prevents the reception of undesired signals as well as confining extraneous signals generated within the cable itself. EMI/RFI backshells enclose the cable in a tightly woven metal braid comprised of wire strands which is then terminated at one or both ends of the cable to ground potential. The termination and grounding of the shield is accomplished by using a suitable connector backshell. A variety of backshell configurations are available for termination of cable shielding

M85049/128 TERMINATION BANDS for use with circular adapters

M85049/128 Termination Bands for use with circular adapters

We provide Government QPL'd manufactured M85049/128 Termination Bands. These bands are commonly used to attach a braid or a shield to a backshell to provide EMI/RFI shielding. They are available in different lengths, widths, and styles. Our Termination Bands work seamlessly with Daniels Tooling.

MS3057 STYLE A, B, C & D CABLE CLAMPS

MS3057 Style A, B, C & D Cable Clamps

Our MS3057 style cable clamps have MS 'V' Threads that will provide strain relief for MIL-DTL-5015 Solder (style A) connectors. These clamps are used heavily in the automotive and heavy industrial markets. They are available in a wide variety of finishes including Cadmium Olive Drab, Electroless Nickel, Black or Green Zinc Cobalt and more.

MS3420 BUSHINGS (WITH FLANGE)

MS3420 Bushings (with flange)

Bushing of synthetic rubber to be used with cable clamps for protection of the cable or wires. Generally for use with MS3057 Clamps.

PROTECTIVE COVERS FOR CIRCULAR CONNECTORS

Protective Covers for Circular Connectors

Our full line of Protective Covers provide moisture and dust protection for almost every circular mil-spec connector. Available with a wide selection of lanyard types and lengths. Security rings and eyelets of all sizes are also available

CONSTANT FORCE SPRING ADAPTER

Constant Force Spring Adapter

We can provide a unique re-enterable termination system for connecting a cable shielding braid to a circular connector. When used in conjunction with a heatshrink moulded shape, a sealed environmental termination system is achieved. The main feature is that the termination can be re-entered when required. It is thereby possible to effect repairs to connector pins/sockets without the need to discard any part of the shielding system. Due to the self-tensioning nature of the spring, it provides excellent resistance to vibration and shock. Predominantly used in the Aerospace, Defence and Professional Electronics sectors.
