First ESA-certified D-Sub backshell with haloring

C&K has announced that it has become the first manufacturer to seek out and obtain certification from the European Space Agency (ESA) for a backshell with haloring.

The D-Sub lightweight backshell is a key element in protecting connectors and cables in space applications with tight weight and space constraints. C&K now offering new variants to address customer needs in applications where shielding is required.

The D-Sub backshell and haloring are available in two quality grades: the ESA/ESCC certified and the Engineering model. Both models are mainly focused on the space market, with applications in launchers, satellites and spacecraft, with a main use in harnesses.

With 11 outlet shapes among 6 different sizes, and a choice of gold or nickel finish, these shells come with ultra-long reliability, compact size, and easier tolerance management.
