Shrink Boot Adapters

Shrink Boot Adapters.jpg

The Shrink Boot Adapter is a backshell that attaches to a connector's accessory threads to provide the necessary gripping area for a shrink boot. The Shrink Boot and Adapter are slipped over the cable and, after wiring is completed, the Adapter is attached to the connector. The Shrink Boot is positioned over the Adapter and the jacketed cable. As heat is applied to the Shrink Boot it shrinks tightly around the Adapter and cable forming an environmental seal. Compaero offers a number of Shrink Boot termination variations including Shield Sock, Stainless Steel Termination Band, Stainless Steel Constant Force Spring and Light Bulb Thread.

Circular Backshells

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) generate interference. When strong external noise fields exist, the conductors of a cable act as antennas and pick up the radiated signals. The reception of this interference results in inaccurate or interrupted data transmission. An effective shield prevents the reception on undesired signals as well as confining extraneous signals generated within the cable itself. EMI/RFI Backshells enclose the cable in a tightly woven metal braid comprised of wire strands which is then terminated at one or both ends of the cable to ground potential. The termination and grounding of the shield is accomplished by using a suitable connector backshell. A variety of backshell configurations are available for termination of cable shielding.
