Easy-to-assemble split banding rings expand TE Connectivity’s MIL-SPEC 85049-qualified portfolio

Aerospace and military customers have new source for products that protect cable assemblies

HARRISBURG, Pa.  – April 23, 2019 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is expanding its range of qualified products in the MIL-SPEC 85049 range with the introduction of its new split banding rings. TE’s split banding rings help provide grounding or screening protection to cable assemblies in aircraft and military vehicles, joining a wide range of other TE products in the AS85049 range.

Qualified to MIL-SPEC 85049/93, TE’s split banding rings aid cable protection where braid sock, individual or a combination of screen braids must be terminated away from the backshell. The rings are made from lightweight, rugged plastic that helps reduce weight, and their side-entry construction makes them easy to assemble.

“Our new split banding rings complement TE’s extensive variety of associated products qualified to MIL-SPEC 85049, like BT series backshells, BND banding straps and Raychem SolderSleeve devices, among others,” said James Cowap, global product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “Adding them increases the range of qualified products our customers can find from TE.”

Split banding rings have an operating temperature of minus 65 degrees Celsius to plus 175 C. They can be used with standard TE band straps, SolderSleeve devices and heat shrink molded shapes as required.
