Right angle backshells by Weald extend Lane Electronics’ connector range

Extending the connector accessories range available from Lane Electronics, new 90 degree backshells (the LMA19 series) from Weald Electronics are designed for use with D38999 connectors.  

These backshells allow for a more compact bend than a conventional 90⁰ heat shrink boot, explained Lane Electronics, while still providing good mechanical protection and EMC performance. Typically, a 90 degree backshell can provide a tighter bend radius than the jacketed and screened cable would allow on its own. It is commonly used for cable plugs that are connecting to the front of equipment where the compact dimensions allow the cable to be kept away from the equipment while in use. When used in this manner, the same teeth that mesh with the teeth on the back of D38999 connectors allow the angle to be set or ‘clocked’ in a convenient position helping to direct the cable away in exactly the desired direction.

Lane Electronics offers a wide portfolio of connector accessories designed for high performance applications including defence, aerospace and demanding industrial applications. The company has a dedicated advisory team available to assist customers find an appropriate interconnection. A large stock of standard backshells in a range of sizes and finishes as well as adhesive lined and plain shaped shrinkable boots are always ready for immediate delivery. There is no minimum order quantity or value requirement. Lane Electronics can also supply a range of nut plates, protective caps and gaskets to complete product final assembly.

Weald sealing and strain relief 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. The LMA19 series backshells protect the cable and the integrity of the overall connection, eliminate cable bending and over flexing. When used with a heat shrink boot, they prevent the ingress of liquids and dirt, said Lane Electronics.

The two-part design allows uncoupling for inspection and repairs without damaging the boot. The design also provides 360 degree screening against EMI/RFI. The backshells are supplied with a tool-free constant force spring or band strap.
