Glenair's "G-Spring" backshells provide an innovative method of terminating and grounding overall shields, screens and metal foil shielding on wiring harnesses and cables. The G-Spring design provides a peripheral spring member which compresses against the exposed shield to effect positive electrical grounding around the entire circumference of the shield. This design is particularly well suited for applications where disturbance or distortion of the shield is undesirable, or the makeup of the shield does not easily permit forming over a grounding ring or other termination device. It is available in both non-environmental and cable jacket sealing versions. An inner support ring inserted under the shield or screen prevents damage to the wire conductor insulation at the point where the G-Spring makes contact with the shield.
