Title: Interconnect system with friction fit backshell

Abstract

Various technologies described herein pertain to interconnect systems for electrical cables. An interconnect system can include a connector, an adapter ring, and a backshell. The connector includes a threaded distal coupling portion. The adapter ring includes a threaded proximal coupling portion and a non-threaded distal coupling portion. The backshell includes a proximal coupling portion and a port. The threaded proximal coupling portion of the adapter ring and the threaded distal coupling portion of the connector can be mechanically attached. Additionally, the proximal coupling portion of the backshell and the non-threaded distal coupling portion of the adapter ring can be mechanically attached. A wire bundle can enter the backshell through the port, pass through the adapter ring, and terminate at the connector. A shield that encloses the wire bundle can terminate at the backshell such that an end of the shield is positioned around an outer surface of the port.
