UK-made high-performance connector backshells from Weald Electronics

Weald Electronics, a leading UK manufacturer of circular connectors and accessories for military, aerospace and demanding industrial applications, announces a new family of backshells for MIL-DTL-26482 Series 1 and MIL-DTL-38999 Series III and IV connector systems.

The LMA19 series are sealing and strain relief backshells which Weald has produced in many sizes and in a variety of RoHS compliant finishes. According to Weald, those who need to use connector systems that meet the requirements of MIL-DTL-26482/38999 will be very interested to learn that Weald’s sole distributor Lane Electronics has significant stocks of standard backshells – in a variety of sizes and finishes – for next day delivery. Many standard backshells from other manufacturers can often be on lengthy lead times.

There is no minimum order quantity or value on standard products.

Designed to protect the integrity of the cable and the connection, the backshells provide cable support to prevent bending and overflexing as well as protection against the ingress of water and dirt when used with a heat shrink boot.

Weald’s LMA backshells exactly match the quality and finish of Weald’s circular connector systems including Weald’s popular LMH series and are suitable for use with MIL-DTL-26482/38999 circular connectors from many other manufacturers.

Importantly, these are two-part components which allows uncoupling for inspection and repairs without damaging the boot.

LMA series backshells feature full 360⁰ screening against EMI/RFI interference and come with a tool-free constant force spring or band strap.

For those requiring a non-standard backshell, Weald provides a design and prototyping team to work with customers to develop the perfect solution for the application.

As well as these high-performance backshells, Weald manufactures a variety of connector accessories including nut-plates, protective caps and gaskets. These are also available from Lane Electronics, along with a huge selection of heat shrinkable products from HellermannTyton.
