Amphenol manufacture a wide range of caps and accessories including backshells and cable adaptors as well as cable and pipe management fixings.

A wide variety of backshells and adaptors are available for both circular and rectangular connectors and qualified to AS85049 or M85049/ specification.  Backshells provide strain relief, EMI/RFI shielding and environmental sealing and are screwed onto the rear accessory thread of the connector.  Available in many different designs such as straight, 45 and 90 degree, we are also able to offer competitively priced tailored solutions.  Backshells can be supplied in Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Brass, Composite or Titanium and plated in a number of RoHS compliant finishes.  Amphenol Ltd are one of a select few suppliers able to offer Black Zinc Nickel plated backshells and adaptors.

Amphenol Ltd are able to cross-refer and offer alternatives to backshells from Polamco, Tyco, TE, Sunbank, Electro-Adapter, Glenair and Mil-spec part numbers.  Either use the cross-reference tool at or give us a call and we'll generate alternate part numbers for you.

Designed to secure, guide and manage cable harnesses through aircraft and vehicles, Amphenol’s pipe and cable clamp system attachments are engineered with strength, stability and weight reduction in mind. Our cable and pipe supports are rugged – able to withstand high vibration and shock, and non-conductive/non-corrosive – able to withstand many harsh environments.  

Details of EMI/RFI and environmental sealing caps are generally provided in the catalogue of the relevant product series.  E.g. for details of caps for Mil-C-26482 connectors see our 62GB catalogue.
