Backshells

All types of plugs and receptacles can accept backshells, except box mounting receptacles (LJT02, LJTP02, JT02, JTP02, TVP02, CTVP02), which do not have any thread at the rear of connector. 

Each backshell can be used on both plug and receptacle of the same connector range and size (ex: TV NSA 15 014 can be put at the rear of both TV06RW1535P and TVP00RW1535S or TV07RW1519P)

Backshells are used mainly at the rear of plugs, but can also be used at the rear of receptacles.

Functions of backshells are:

  • Mechanical strength (cable retention)
  • Sealing (waterproofness)
  • EMI shielding

Amphenol backshell range is made of pieces which can achieve one of this function or a combination of two or three of these functions.
To get further information, please consult our backshell catalog.

Accepted cable diameters are listed in our SL61 series datasheet. These dimensions varies according to the connector’s size. You will find these dimensions page 3 of the datasheet. Different clamping pads are delivered with the backshells.
