The versatility of Weald circular connectors is increased by a choice of shell sizes, styles, plug and socket contact types and contact arrangements.

 In addition to circular connectors Weald Electronics manufactures PCB Edge Card connectors, two-part PCB connectors and subminiature plastic-bodied circular connectors.

 A range of accessories are manufactured by Weald to complete any interconnection solution. These include protective caps and backshells as well as specially developed protective caps, nutplates and gaskets for use right across motorsport.

 Weald sealing and strain relief backshells have been designed for MIL-DTL-26482 Series 1 and MIL-DTL-38999 (D38999) Series III and IV connector systems. Known as the LMA19 series, the backshells protect the cable and the integrity of the overall connection. They eliminate cable bending and over flexing and when used with a heat shrink boot, they prevent the ingress of liquids and dirt.

 With design, manufacturing and test facilities at its Sussex based factory, Weald Electronics is able to tailor a connector solution to exactly meet a customer’s specific requirement on surprisingly short lead times. Standard products are normally available by next day.
