As technology is ever changing and driving the requirement for interconnects to become smaller and smaller, Electro-Magnetic Interference, or EMI, remains a major issue for cable assemblies. Winchester Interconnect Micro has developed a line of Integrated Backshells that address those issues. Most other backshells are either too large (fit over the wired connector) or very expensive. Winchester’s new line of Integrated Backshells are designed to be small and offers some key benefits. Since the backshell is integrated into the connector body, the height and width is minimized. Additionally, our integrated backshells reduces the number of components needed, providing our customers with a reduction in costs and items on the BOM (Bill of Materials). Integrated backshells are available in both our Nano-D and Micro-D connector lines.
Designed around the M83513 and M32139 interfaces, integrated backshells can be incorporated into pigtailed connectors or complex cable harnesses without increasing the profile of the connector. They provide 360 degrees of EMI protection while increasing cable strength without the need of a traditional band style clamp. Within Winchester Interconnect Micro’s Integrated Backshell line, solutions can be offered with several different inner and outer braiding options, different cable exit angle and custom configurations. Our in house braiding machines allow us to provide our customers with tightly fitted EMI shielding and abrasion protection. Non-Metallic fabric braid can be made from [Denier Fiber, per MIL-C-572]. Metal braided sleeving can be made of either Tinned or Silver plated copper per A-A-59551.
