As UK sales partner to Provertha, the German manufacturer of standard and high-density D-connectors, backshells, cable assemblies and associated accessories, KEC, the Aldermaston-based EMC interconnect specialist, now supplies the Provertha range of D type, die-cast, metal backshells that provides ‘excellent’ EMC protection and safe and simple assembly.
The zinc die-cast housings have a crimp flange and ferrule system to provide high levels of EMI/RFI protection across a wide range of cable sizes. The backshells are available in all sizes of D-type connectors and are suitable for use with both standard and high density versions. Multiple outlets are provided to allow cable entry at various angles for easy fitting or for accommodating more than one input cable.
The backshell cover plate has fully-retained fitting screws to allow ease of assembly while increasing safety and decreasing operation time by preventing screws from being dropped into equipment during assembly. Various types of jackscrews can be provided with knurls, hex heads, Allen key or ball head screw-driver fitting and both 4-40 UNC and M3 threads are available.
Versions of this product can be supplied with internal or external cable clamps and bushings that still give high levels of screening and provide a wide flexibility of cable solutions.
KEC supplies the full range of Provertha products either as individual components or as part of a full design and cable harness assembly programme, says the company.More news from KEC
