Rail D-Subminiature Backshells

Rail D-Subminiature Backshells

A comprehensive range of ruggedized metal backshells for D-Subminiature connectors.

A comprehensive range of ruggedized metal backshells for D-Subminiature connectors. TE Connectivity (TE) provides a comprehensive range of ruggedized metal backshells for D-Subminiature connectors that allow for a fast easy installation and assembly thanks to a practical construction with a minimum number of single parts. TE has many options available including a unique retrofitable “quick-lock” system for easy robust assembly in tight spaces. The cable exit option of crimp inserts ensuring unparalleled 360° EMI/EMC Shielding. The jacket crimping also prevents damage to the conductors caused by torsion of the cable for quick and easy installation. We also have a screw strain relief cable exit option which requires no crimp tooling.

Key Features

  • Self retaining assembly screws
  • 225o, 180o and 135o cable exit options
  • High quality die cast metal shell
  • Large volume allows for dense packing
  • 360o EMI/EMC shielding for useage in EN50155 systems
  • M3 or UNC 4-40 thread
  • Full metal parts mean fire and smoke compliant
  • Several turned steel screws options in M3 and UNC 4-40
  • 2 Strain relief options (See below)

Quick Lock Hoods

Our quick lock versions are an effective, time saving solution with its ‘squeeze to release’ self locking system it also provides three cable exit options in just one single part.

Key Features

  • Self retaining assembly screws
  • 225o, 180o and 135o cable exit options in one part
  • Large volume allows for dense packing
  • Squeeze to release, no screw locks needed, self locking during assembly
  • High quality full metal shell

Cable Exit Options

Option 1: Crimped Strain relief

Cable rotation in the connector strain relief or PG clamp can lead to breakage of the individual conductors in the cable. This can result in intermittent system errors which are typically very difficult to find.

 

The solution: Crimping the cable jacket

 

Advantage: Crimping of the jacket is a well defined and proven method. The crimp flange protects the conductors against damage during the crimping process. Please see our D-Sub Shell's brochure for help with how to select the correct crimp flange, crimp barrel and crimp tooling and for more information.

 

Key Features

  • Fits both standard and quick lock hoods
  • Prevention of cable rotation leads to increased system reliability
  • 360o EMI/EMC shielding allows for application in high EMI noise environment
  • Crimp flange is protecting the individual conductors in order to avoid breakage of the wires during compression

Option 2: Cable outlet with screws

For quick and easy installation requiring no special tools TE’s cable outlet with screws option suits those needing a fast and simple installation. With a two piece cable clamp to allow for effective strain relief this cable exit is fitted with ribs to prevent cable retention.

 

Key Features:

  • Fits both standard and quick lock hoods
  • Max compression to approx. 50% of the original volume allows for a large cable diameter range
  • Cable compressed by screws, no special tooling required
  • Ribs to prevent cable retention enhance pull out force
