Astute Electronics offers waterproof connectors with proprietary epoxy sealing process

1 min read

Astute Electronics, the leading supplier of electronic components and value added services, has introduced the E-Seal range of waterproof connectors from Canadian company EDAC. They use a proprietary epoxy sealing process that seals the entire back of the connector rather than individual pins. “This approach delivers complete sealing with an impeccably smooth finish, guaranteeing no water ingress as they are fully tested to IP67 standards,” said Gary Evans, E-Mech Divisional Manager at Astute Electronic. “Seal up your design with E-Seal for the best waterproofing.”

The range includes D-sub connectors from DB 9 right through to a maximum of 78 positions. Standard and high density footprints are available in vertical or right angle orientations. Plating options vary from gold flash to 30 micro-inches of gold and include a wide variety of mounting options.

The combo power D-subs can carry up to 20A on the power pins. USB types A and B wire-to-wire devices use quarter turn twist-and-lock over-mould and O-ring to give the perfect seal every time.

USB Micro B units save valuable board space and provide increased cable retention. Fully epoxy sealing at the rear with a custom O-ring reliably seals the shell to the panel.

IP67 waterproof HDMI cable connectors also feature the quarter turn twist-and-lock over-mould and O-ring for a rugged waterproof connection in all outdoor video applications.
