BIT Workx* Prototyping Capability

Get a Faster, Smarter Backshell Solution

*Backshells In Theory

Dealing with all the variables in commercial and MIL-Spec backshell designs can be a challenging, time-consuming task. As the mechanical device that surrounds the rear of the connector, a backshell must accommodate many application-specific variables: wire-end/cable-bundle geometries, size and weight restrictions, environmental protection and sealing issues, physical requirements (angles/profiles, strain relief, shielding, termination, etc.).

Why You Should Choose BIT Workx from TE?

BIT Workx provides full service design and accelerated prototyping capability that is faster and smarter than conventional approaches to providing commercial backshells.


The new design and prototyping cell resides in a TE facility that has received AS9100 certification. This facility also manufactures products qualifying under Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).


Count on the BIT Workx design service to deliver solutions fast to expedite Time to Market—whether your application calls for a design-in derivative or a special backshell solution.
