A new metal backshell series for D-Subminiature connectors from ITT Interconnect Solutions offers protection from electromagnetic and radio interferences to cable assemblies. D*FM series metal backshells are said to be very easy to assemble and fit, and have been designed for use in industrial and telecom applications.
Featuring a blue chromated zinc housing and a metal-filled plastic cable strain relief to guarantee 360-degree shielding, the D*FM series metal backshells are competitively priced and do not require any crimp ferrule tooling. Size 9, size 15 and size 50 components will be available from January 2009; size 25 and 37 devices will be added to the range in March 2009.
Fully RoHS-compliant, the backshells can be used over a wide operating temperature range from -40 to +120degC.
