Chicago, IL (December 15, 2015)—Switchcraft has created the Data-Con-X sealing cap, a new IP68-rated seal for unmated standard data connectors.
Switchcraft products are used in a variety of applications from broadcast and pro audio to medical, product tracking and other general industrial electronic uses, but increasingly, USB, HDMI, and RJ45 Ethernet connectors are becoming more common in harsh environment applications. When not in use, such ports can allow the ingress of dust and moisture which can cause sophisticated electronics to fail. The new Data-Con-X sealing cap, when used with Data-Con-X Panel Connectors, provides a reportedly watertight IP68 seal. The caps can also be used in conjunction with Data-Con-X connectors, which are sealed when mated.
Switchcraft’s Data-Con-X connectors and sealing cap are made in the USA and available at many leading electronics distributors.
