Mencom Corp. will be featuring its waterproof connectors for harsh manufacturing environments at PackExpo 2015 – Booth S-6378 in the Lower South Hall in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
There are as many terms used to describe waterproof connectors as there are reasons for needing one, such as water resistant, water repellent, and watertight. The best way to ensure you have the proper connector for your project is to find the IP rating associated with the connector you plan to use.
IP (Ingress Protection) rating is the most common system for evaluating how “waterproof” your connector is. IP rating is categorized by two digit numbers. The first digit represents the protection rating against solid foreign objects such as dusts. The second digit represents the protection against the ingress of liquids.
