AS85049 Adapters and Band Straps

TE Connectivity announces the approval to be on the military qualified parts list (QPL) for AS85049/82 to /90 band strap adapters and /128 band straps. AS85049 is a military specification for connector accessories designed to work with military connectors like those built to MIL-DTL-38999. The AS85049 industry standard is used on most military circular connectors including M38999. TE Connectivity offers a wide-selection of sizes, materials, and platings to meet customers needs. The band-strap termination system provides ease of installation and repair.

TE Connectivity also offers the corrosion-resisting steel bands in three styles to help meet the customer’s shield. The M85049 band straps and adapters feature side-entry band straps, making them easier to install and repair, and providing high-reliability under vibration due to their self-coupling locking nut. The product is used at the back of a connector to provide shielding, screening, and grounding to a cable harness, which helps provide EMI and RFI protection. The adapters are offered in straight, 45°C and 90° formats.
