How to choose a waterproof connector

Waterproof connector refers to a connector that meets the response waterproof performance. Generally, it is not used in households, but is used in industrial environments and outdoor environments. The waterproof performance of the product needs to be tested and graded before shipment. Depending on the waterproof level of the waterproof connector, different waterproof connector waterproof test equipment will be used.

For example, if the connector level is IP66, the IPX6 connector waterproof tester equipment is used, which is a strong flushing test box. During the test, the connector is placed in the inner box of the connector waterproof tester (strong flushing test box), and the connector is flushed through the IPX6 test spray gun on the left (flushing distance is 2.5-3 meters).

If the connector level is IP68, use IPX8 waterproof test equipment, that is, pressure immersion test equipment. This equipment can simulate a test environment from 10 meters to 100 meters underwater. Mainly through the principle of air pressure, by adding compressed air above the water surface, the pressure in the water can reach 0.1Mpa-1.0Mpa. This is a common IP68 waterproof test equipment.

The current electronic connectors generally can reach IP66, and the higher IP67, IP68 waterproof level, you need to choose a professional waterproof connector.
