If your project requires inline separable connections, there is really no better solution than the automotive weatherproof connector. Geoff gives us an overview of these connectors, as well as a demonstration on how to install them.
Scene 1 – Overview
If your project requires inline separable connections, there is really no better solution than the automotive weatherproof connector.
We’d like to introduce you to this new line of connectors from Multicomp.
These connectors will withstand nearly any environment. They’ll hold up to water, oil, fuel, extreme heat and cold.
There are several features that make these connectors some of the best on the market.
The rubber ribbed gaskets completely isolate the connection from dust, liquids and other contaminants. (show close-up of gaskets)
When locked in place, the result is a impressively secure connection.
And best of all, they’re actually quite affordable.
Scene 2 – How to crimp
Assembling these connectors is easy.
First, strip about 3/16″ off each lead and twist the wires.
Slide a seal over each lead, making sure it sits flush with the end of the wire’s insulation. (show sliding seal over, and flush-ness)
Situate the pin so it goes over both the rubber seal and the conductor. (show positioning of the pin on the wire)
Using crimpers, crimp the pin to both the seal and conductor.
Repeat for the other leads.
Next, slide each pin into the connector and fully seat it.
We recommend inserting female pins in the connector halves with the rubber seals, and the male pins into the connector halves without the rubber seals, but these are actually interchangeable.
Repeat with the other side of the connection.
Need to remove a pin? That’s no problem with a connector removal tool, which is included with all weatherproof automotive crimp tools.
Now you have a secure, weatherproof connection.
Scene 3 – Review
Applications for these connectors aren’t limited to the automotive space.
These excel in any outdoor or industrial application as well.
We sell a variety of connectors that accommodate 12AWG, 14-16AWG and 18-20AWG, as well as complete kits, so you’ll have an assortment on hand.
