Lane Electronics adds Weald’s bronze right angle backshells to connector range

MIL-DTL-38999 connectors and accessories by Weald Electronics available from Lane Electronics now include a new bronze right-angle backshell connectors for use with D38999 and CECC derived bronze connectors.  

Bronze material provides resistance to salt spray without suffering corrosion or binding, unlike stainless steel or plated aluminium alternatives, making the new additions suitable for marine applications. 

The 90 degree backshells are manufactured in-house by Weald Electronics ensuring assembly and shipment is available on short lead-times, said Lane.

The right angle backshells allow for a more compact cable bend than a conventional 90 degree heat shrink boot while still providing good mechanical protection and EMC performance and are typically used with cable plugs that connect to the front of equipment. The compact dimensions allow the cable to be kept away from the equipment while in use. It is common to use the same teeth that mesh with the teeth on the back of connectors to allow the connection angle to be set or ‘clocked’ in a convenient position, helping to direct the cable away in the desired direction.

Distributor Lane Electronics offer a wide portfolio of connector accessories designed for high performance applications. Based around the latest series of backshells, adapters and protective dust caps from Weald Electronics, it also includes a selection of heat shrinkable boots, tubing and shapes from HellermannTyton. Lane Electronics can also supply a range of nut plates, protective caps and gaskets to complete product final assembly.

Weald sealing and strain relief LMA19 backshells are manufactured in the UK and have been designed for MIL-DTL-26482 Series 1 and MIL-DTL-38999 (D38999) Series III and IV connector systems.

Key markets served include defence, avionics, marine, communications, medical, motorsport, test and measurement, general industrial, geophysical and emerging technologies.
