High sealing level

IP68 sealing for waterproof connectors

June 30, 2020
#IP68 #sealing #waterproof #harshenvironment #marine
When you need a waterproof connector, the choice may not be as straightforward as just choosing an IP68-sealed solution. IP68 ratings can differ – for some, IP68 rated can mean as little as 1 meter for 15 minutes. Fischer Connectors’ solutions offer much higher IP68 sealing levels. And this is a decision-making factor for our customers designing harsh-environment connectivity.
