Covid-19 - KEC Open for Business

14 Apr 2020

We would like to let you know that KEC remains fully operational during the COVID-19 crisis.  We recognise that many of our customers and partners are still working and that in many cases our products are used by MoD, and in turn those products are required to support Military Aid to the Civil Authorities (MACA), including COVID-19 activities.  We are taking the necessary precautions with social distancing and working from home where we can whilst maintaining our ability to respond to enquiries, provide quotations, assemble backshells and other KEC products, and constantly working with our supply chain to dispatch orders as near to their due date as possible.

KEC backshells provide an environmental seal that is equal to or higher than the IP rating of the connector to which they are fitted with the added advantage of improved conductivity for EMC screening. 

Now Use The Screen Termination Method of Your Choice

10 Sep 2018

Many customers have their preferred method of screen termination, from simple cable ties, to springs, band straps, clamps, and metal rings that respond to heat etc.  In some cases large investments have been made in the tooling to apply that screen termination.  For those customers the KC2500 backshell is now available without any screen termination device so that they can continue to use the termination method of their choice. For a complete EMC termination solution the KC2500 backshell can still be provided with band straps.
