In2Connect is now stocking and shipping the SP 13, 17 and 21 Series of IP68 rated connectors built by Weipu. These RoHS Compliant and CE Approved circular connectors are IP68 rated while in the mated state. Lightweight, weatherproof and extremely cost-effective, In2Connect’s screw threaded, positive mating keywayed connectors have strong Nylon shells designed to be resistant to hostile conditions of dust and moisture.
Available with from 2 to 12 contacts they will handle from 250 to 500 VAC and 5 to 30 Amps dependent upon size and planform. Gold plated solder contacts come as standard with screw contacts available to order on lead time for SP21 sizes. Male or female contacts are available in plug and in-line or industry standard 13, 17 or 21mm cut-out panel mount sockets. 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.
Although not designed for continuous immersion they are factory tested under 2 metres of water for 1 week, and hence are widely used for safe control and power connections between equipment where IP68 is critical, e.g. in instrumentation, process control, industrial machinery, automotive, marine and other applications like outdoor lights, LED lights and LED display walls, outdoor security cameras, etc. Also in stock from In2Connect are the Weipu SF12 screened, push-pull mating IP67 circular connectors with chrome plated brass shells. Unbeatable on both price and quality.
