KEC KC 2500 EMC Backshells For Multiple Termination Devices

The KC 2500 series is part of the KC 2000 range of high performance, EMC backshells for standard circular connectors that consist of eight individual but interrelated products for both individual and overall screening and environmental protection.

The KC 2500 is provided with band straps as standard for overall screen termination but many customers have their preferred method of screen termination, from simple cable ties, to springs, band straps, clamps, and heat shrinkable metal rings.

In some cases large investments have been made in the tooling to apply that screen termination. For those customers the KC 2500 backshell is also available without any screen termination device so that customers can continue to use the termination method of their choice (See Note 3 on reverse).

Suitable for both highly sophisticated and simpler solutions, the KC 2000 range is available at prices that are viable for small batch to high volume production runs. The range is ideal for all defence and aerospace as well as commercial and industrial applications.
