Product Lines and Applications
Connector Backshells are electro-mechanical devices threaded to the rear of the connector shell to provide strain relief, environmental sealing and EMI/RFI protection for cable terminations. TICS offers a comprehensive range of circular backshells ideal for use in rugged and harsh environment applications. All the backshells manufactured at our facility are compatible with applicable military specifications or commercial equivalents.
Backshells can selected based on wide variety of termination options including the Banding, Shield Sock, Memory Ring, Band In a Can and Cable Clamp Strain Reliefs. With a range of materials & finishes, coupling ring styles and cable entry configurations, TICS offers a one stop solution for protecting your military connectors.
TICS’s Rectangular Backshell portfolio includes backshells for D-Sub (MIL-DTL-24308), Micro D-Sub (MIL-DTL–83513) and ARINC (MIL-DTL-81659) connectors. These are available in both circular and elliptical cable entry styles with straight, 45˙ and 90˙ cable routing options.
These backshells offer protection from EMI/RFI interference and can be supplied with a wide array of hardware retention options for mounting on to the connectors.
Protective Covers, also called as Dust Caps, are used for protecting the connectors from moisture and dust. They also safe guard the connector coupling mechanisms from physical damage.
TICS offers these covers for all types of circular mil-spec connectors (circular and bayonet versions) in many standard materials and finishes, with a range of lanyard and ring options to choose from.
TICS’s range of connector accessories include Termination Bands, Constant Force Spring Bands and Dummy Stowage Receptacles
- Termination Bands – Termination Bands are the most popularly used systems for clamping the braid shields onto the connector backshells. These bands are available in various styles and forms.
- Constant Force Spring Bands – Constant Force Spring Bands are a faster but secure means of attaching the braids onto the backshells. The spring bands are reusable and can be easily installed without help of any special tooling.
- Dummy Stowage Receptacles – Dummy Stowage Receptacles are used for protecting the plug connectors from moisture and physical damage when disconnected for extended periods of time. TICS can offer these receptacles for most mil-spec connectors.
In addition to their range of standard products, Astute can provide technical support to develop customer-specific solutions in conjunction with the manufacturer.
