Need a special product? In addition to our extensive product range, we have gained a wealth of experience over the years and use this to help overcome your EMC challenges.  If our standard range does not suit your precise requirements we can make modifications and we also offer a full design and build service for non-standard products and can manufacture to your own requirements.

Fast Delivery KEC has been producing high performance EMC circular backshells for nearly 40 years.  Our products are all manufactured in the UK, significantly reducing delivery lead times and maximising availability for both small batch and high-volume production runs, all at competitive prices. 

Fibre Optics Although fibre optic transmission is not susceptible to EMI/RFI the cables can have an overall screen that requires termination and backshells also have a tendency to crush the delicate fibre cable bundle.  To overcome these problems KEC has modified its KC2100 and KC2300 series backshells 

KEC also supplies:

We can also design, source and supply wiring and cable harness assemblies which, together with our box kitting service, supports this comprehensive component range.
