Datamate Metal Backshells

Datamate Metal Backshells - suitable for J-Tek and Mix-Tek launched

Metal backshells to add EMI/RFI Shielding and mechanical integrity to Datamate J-Tek and Mix-Tek

Datamate Metal Backshells are accessories to compliment the Datamate J-Tek and Mix-Tek product ranges. These fully machined metal backshells are made from aluminium alloy with electroless nickel plating.

Female cable backshells include a rear attachment collar for screening braid or other braids for mechanical wear prevention and have a choice of hex socket or slotted floating jackscrews.

Male backshells fit both PCB and Cable mount connectors (with board mount jackscrews), and are ideal for external panel mount requirements. Once the female shielded connector is mated, full 360 degree EMI/RFI shielding is achieved.

Features and Benefits

  • Machined single-piece aluminium for strength and shielding integrity
  • Nickel plating for corrosion resistance
  • Accepts signal, coax and power (up to 12AWG PTFE wires)
  • Sizes range from 8 to 32 signal contacts (each power or coax contact is equivalent to 4 signal contacts) - see table below
  • RF Attenuation = 10kHz to 400MHz @ >30dBs mated
  • Low MOQs and fast turnaround

Shell Designs

  • M80-945xx02 - Female cable backshell with Slotted floating jackscrews
  • M80-946xx02 - Female cable backshell with Hex Socket floating jackscrews
  • M80-906xx02 - Male backshell, fits both Vertical PCB and Cable connectors

Sizes and Equivalent Contacts

"XX" in the above part numbers designates the equivalent number of Signal contacts. Each power or coax contact is the equivalent of 4 signal contacts.
