The Challenge

Technology is ever-changing and driving the requirement for interconnects to become smaller and smaller. Electro-Magnetic Interference, or EMI, continues to be a major issue for cable assemblies.

Winchester Interconnect Micro's Solution

Winchester Interconnect Micro, formerly known as Ulti-Mate Connector, has developed a line of Integrated Backshells that address size constraints and EMI concerns. Other backshells are either too large (fit over the wired connector) or too expensive. Winchester Interconnect Micro’s new line of Integrated Backshells are designed to be small and offer some key benefits. Since the backshell is integrated into the connector body, the height and width is minimized. Additionally, our integrated backshells reduce the number of components needed, providing our customers with a reduction in costs and items on the Bill of Materials (BOM).

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 need for 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, various cable exit angles, 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 braids 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.
