Integrated Backshell D38999 Connectors

Integrated backshell connectors are built to conform with the MIL-DTL-38999 series III specification so are therefore fully intermateable and interchangeable with D38999 III products.

These connectors offer the performance advantages of D38999 with the following benefits over a traditional connector/backshell pairing:

  • quicker assembly;
  • space saving;
  • lower weight;
  • time-saving during ordering;
  • reduced inventory holding.

The one-piece shell construction completely integrates the straight backshell thereby enabling screen termination using either band or spring. They are manufactured in both aluminium and stainless steel with various plating options available, including Black Zinc Nickel across the 3 shell styles.
