Waterproof joints, as the name suggests, can be applied to environments with water to provide safe and reliable connector joints. For example: LED street lights, lighthouses, cruise ships, industrial equipment, sprinklers etc., all need to use waterproof connectors.
At present, there are many brands and types of waterproof connectors on the market, but in a real sense, there are still relatively few waterproof connectors with excellent sealing performance and safe and reliable quality. The main assessment standard for the waterproof performance of waterproof connectors is based on the IP waterproof grade standard. Look at the waterproof performance of the waterproof connector, mainly look at the two digits XX at the back of IPXX, the first X is from 0 to 6, the highest level is 6; The second digit is from 0 to 8, the highest level is 8; Therefore the highest waterproof rating of the waterproof connector is IP68.
Waterproof joints of cable gland are divided into internal thread connection, external thread connection, clamping connection and other connections according to different installation methods. The functions of waterproof connectors usually include waterproof and industrial plugs.
The waterproof connector is made of very good special material, with self-locking function, strong tensile strength, waterproof, dustproof etc. It will not cause damage to the motor, and it does not need to be used during function. The fixed head is disassembled, and the cable can be directly passed through, which is time saving and convenient. It is generally used to fix cables such as mechanical control boxes, power distribution boxes, and electrical appliances.
Waterproof joints are divided into seven levels for solid protection and nine levels for water protection. The standard of solid protection is divided into seven levels from 0 to 6, level 0 is the level without any protection, level 1 can prevent solids above 50mm from intruding into the joint, level 2 is solids above 12.5mm, level 3 is 2.5 for solids above mm, level 4 is for solids greater than 1.0mm, level 5 is to prevent the intrusion of dust-sized solids, and level 6 is to achieve a sealed state and complete protection.
