Composite Shell Filtered Connectors

Specialty Connectors

For even greater design flexibility, API offers composite shell circular connectors. These composite connectors feature shells fabricated from high grade thermoplastic and are designed to replace traditional metal connector shells for substantial weight reduction. The composite shell maintains the form, fit and function of the original connector shell, making it ideal for applications where weight is a critical factor. A composite shell version of many API’s circular connector designs are available.

API Technologies’ filtered EMI connector offerings are fully vertically integrated and manufactured in the USA. Components including capacitors and shells are manufactured by API’s State College, PA facility, providing our customers high quality parts at very competitive prices, with the industry’s shortest lead times.
