TE Connectivity recently introduced its new Tinel ring swept elbow backshells (TXR) for screened cables in a wide range of military and aerospace applications. As content continues to grow in military and aerospace systems, customers look for improved efficiency. TE’s TXR swept elbow backshells offer designers the potential for up to 20% weight savings over traditional backshells.
TE is complementing its series of banding backshells (BT) with a Tinel backshell version (TXR). The new TXR swept elbow backshells provide constant internal radius and a smooth internal bore using investment casting. They are designed to allow for uncoupling during repairs, which helps reduce damage to the boot, resulting in a simple and fast termination option.
“The weight savings of TXR swept elbow backshells offer aerospace and defense market engineers the advantage to design within increasingly crowded spaces,” said Carina Logan, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “These backshells also offer overall 360° screening against EMI/RFI for customers in high vibration applications with large wire bundles.”
TE’s Tinel ring swept elbow backshells suit a wide range of circular connectors and they are available in multiple shell sizes and plating configurations. Those include MIL-DTL-38999 series III and IV as well as MIL-DTL-26482 series II. TXR40 series also meets AS85049 category 3B sealing requirements.
