In2Connect Launches IP68 Rated Waterproof Cable Connectors

The Pintail circular cable connector range from In2Connect provides low-cost, watertight, IP68 interconnects for industrial and electronics applications. Cable and panel connectors have threaded plastic shells with waterproof solder contacts.
The Pintail circular connector range from In2Connect provides low-cost, watertight, interconnection for industrial and waterborne applications. The SP12 and SP21 connectors create an indoor/outdoor interconnect system which offers the form and function of MIL threaded connectors at the cost of a commercial (COTS) product. The SP13 (panel mounting hole size 13mm) and SP21 (panel mounting hole size 21 mm) series of multi-pin, threaded coupling connectors are IP68 rated when mated or when fitted with a waterproof end cap and will work reliably indoors, outdoors and in harsh UV and fairly hostile wet environments.
They are designed for safe control and LV power connections between equipment where IP68 is critical eg: in instrumentation, process control, industrial machinery, automotive, boating and other applications like outdoor lights, LED lights and LED display walls, outdoor security cameras etc…
Developed by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardisation (CENELEC), the IP Standards numerically rate an electrical product on the level of protection its enclosure provides. IP68 connectors must allow no ingress of dust with complete protection against electrical contact. They must also prevent ingress of water in harmful quantity when immersed long-term under defined conditions of pressure and time (up to 1 m of submersion).
Using a combination of dual 'O' ring sealing, high temperature PPS inserts, grommets and compression nuts; all insulator and contact areas in these connectors are fully sealed against environmental elements. The dual 'O' rings mean that the integral backshell can be easily removed to allow accurate soldering of the incoming cable. Connector end caps are available to suit and IP68 integrity is achieved when male and female connectors are mated or when the IP68 end cap replaces a mating connector.
The screw machined brass, solder terminations on the SP21 range are plated gold over nickel in cable free plug, in-line cable receptacle and jam nut panel mounting receptacle options.
Plug and receptacle housings are "keyed" to ensure correct polarisation and tactile feedback when mating. Unlike many competitors' products all the Pintail SP13/21 connectors have the option of male or female solder bucket contacts in any body shell; plus the ability to join cables with cable-end plug and in-line receptacle models.
Constructed of glass filled nylon, flammability rated V-0 shells with high temperature inserts these connectors have very stable dielectric and insulating properties plus they provide good mechanical properties at their design temperatures of -40 to 85 degrees C. They are RoHS compliant, CE approved, small, lightweight and extremely cost-effective when compared to their metal counterparts - without compromising the integrity of the interconnection.
Pintail connectors are designed for at least 500 mating cycles; backshell options can accommodate cable diameters from 3 to 12mm and they're stocked in depth.
In the same water resisting family In2Connect also offer the chrome plated, brass bodied SF connector. The SF12, IP67 has a self-latching system which is renowned for its easy and quick mating/unmating features. It also provides security against vibration, shock or pull on the cable and facilitates operation in a very limited space. The push and pull system also allows the connector to be mated by simply pushing the plug axially into the socket.
Once firmly latched, connection cannot be broken by pulling on the cable or any other release sleeve. When required, the connector is disengaged by a single axial pull on the outer release sleeve. It first disengages the latches and then withdraws the plug from the socket.
