Waterproof connectors protect cables from moisture even when disconnected
28 March 2015
There are no shortage of waterproof connectors available to design engineers. A great number however have to be mated to actually be waterproof as the casing acts as the seal.
In many applications this is not adequate as connectors may have to be disconnected while in service for calibration, repair, module exchange and connection of different ancillary equipment.
In these circumstances it is of critical importance that both the plug and jack remain waterproof while disconnected to prevent ingress of moisture into the connecting cable or equipment preventing loss of performance or damage.
Intelliconnect (Europe) can offer designers their market leading Pisces range of waterproof connectors which meet IP68 even when disconnected.
The recently extended Pisces series now includes additional connector and cable termination options suitable for most Coaxial/Triaxial/Twinaxial waterproof connector groups.
Pisces connectors are now available in SMA, TNC and N Type cable plug options which may be connected to a wide variety of cables including many LMR, RG, semi-rigid and semi-flexible cable types.
All plug types have matching, waterproof when disconnected, jacks to prevent moisture ingress damaging the electronics inside the equipment housing.
