27-11-2019 | Souriau | Subs & Systems

A Single-Arm Composite Backshell developed by Souriau-Sunbank is specifically designed to offer robust and unique performance in terms of reliability and functionality for aerospace defence and other harsh environment applications. The company's design team took into consideration various scenarios and demands for protecting cable connections from damage and offering better strain relief. The backshell family is offered in three types of configuration: Straight, 45 degrees, and 90 degrees. It is created to satisfy demands for all sizes of MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II, and III connectors.


The product does not only offer unique support and strain relief to open wire bundles, but it also provides a reliable grounding option with its solderable ground lug. Due to its flexibility, this new device can also support various plating combinations to satisfy the demands needed for particular applications.


The device is also created to be economically cost-effective but highly reliable, with high-grade thermoplastic materials designed for critical applications and environments, especially on defence and commercial EWIS applications that need weight per part savings, corrosion resistance and electromagnetic interference protection.
