HARRISBURG, Pa. – TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced its new swept elbow backshells for electrical and fiber cables in a wide range of military and aerospace applications. As content continues to grow in military and aerospace systems and customers look for improved efficiency, TE’s swept elbow backshells offer designers the potential for up to 20% weight savings.
