Hexashield® - High Performance EMC Adaptors

Designed to provide EMC protection solutions for both commercial and military applications,
Hexashield® adaptors represent a significant improvement over pigtail termination methods. By providing 360º EMC shielding on the termination area of each individual cable, Hexashield® adaptors provide outstanding shielding effectiveness.

Hexashield® adaptors are simple to install, easy to maintain, and dependably resistant to mechanical and environmental stresses.
