EMI/RFI backshells with heat shrink termination (HST) sleeves provide superior shielding performance and effectiveness in shielded twisted pair cable applications.
The unique StarShield™ configuration completely eliminates "standing antenna" problems common with pigtail shield termination systems. The backshell utilizes familiar heat shrink termination (HST) sleeve technology for fast and reliable termination of shielding—even with dissimilar wire types and gauges. The internal configuration of the StarShield™ features a tapered split-ring that fits snugly into the conically machined backshell or a lightweight band-terminated compression system adapter. Available fittings include overbraid termination, conduit or shrink-boot adapters. Available for all standard MIL-AERO circular connector series, and many popular rectangular connector series. Environmental sealing, self-locking coupling nuts standard on StarShield™ backshells for select popular connector series. Optional shrink boots also available. StarShield™ termination technology can be adapted to additional connector/backshell types not shown.Product Selection Guide
