In commercial aircraft, screened backshells help shield or screen harnesses in power and communications systems from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio-frequency interference (RFI) noise. In aircraft radar systems, these components help protect systems by providing grounding paths in the event of lightning strikes. Strain relief is also provided to help protect connections from loosening under extreme vibration. With TE's backshell and adapter components, you can establish a reliable connection in critical aircraft technology.
