Rail D-sub backshells

TE Connectivity (TE) introduces a comprehensive range of ruggedized metal backshells for D-subminiature connectors that help enable fast and easy assembly and installation due to its simple design. Multiple options are available to fit the unique requirements of your application including two cable exit variants, a unique retrofitable “quick-lock” system for easy, robust assembly in tight spaces and a screw strain relief cable exit. The cable exit option of crimp inserts helps to ensure unparalleled 360° EMI/EMC shielding and the jacket crimping prevents damage to the conductors caused by torsion of the cable. The screw strain relief cable exit option requires no special tooling saving installation time in the field.
