Connector Backshells

Military and Commercial Circular and Rectangular Backshells

PEI-Genesis carries a wide range of military and commercial connector backshells for assembly in just 48 hours. Backshells are commonly used accessories that attach to the connector shell and will enhance a connector’s performance for both general-duty and harsh-environment applications. PEI-Genesis stocks many of the leading circular and rectangular backshell suppliers, including Amphenol, Glenair, Sunbank and Polamco.

Backshells must intermate with the connector’s rear end (wire end) geometry. Due to their various types of design, challenging assembly procedures, and nut/bolt appearances, backshells can be difficult to select. When selecting a backshell, be sure to keep in mind: design and application considerations, angle/profile (straight, 90° or 45°), coupling style, which can include spin coupling, self-lock coupling or direct coupling, and connector style. PEI carries common MIL-spec backshells such as M85049 and provides backshells for all popular connector families including MIL-DTL-38999, MIL-DTL-83723, MIL-DTL-5015, MIL-TL-26482 and more.
