Hermetic M12 connectors from In2Connect are designed to exceed IP68 in an unmated state. These connectors have a wide variety of applications and can be found in most industry sectors, such as transport and instrumentation, for use with proximity switches, sensors and interconnection in harsh environmental conditions. Standard Hermetic connectors are sealed by fusing a single piece glass insert into a machined Stainless Steel Shell. The pin contacts are permanently fused into the insert. To maintain thermal compatibility with the glass insert, the contacts are manufactured from a nickel alloy. The protective plating on the pin contacts is electro-deposited gold over nickel.
The Jam Nut is supplied with a fluorosilicone rubber O-ring for panel sealing. All In2Connect M12 and M12 hermetic connectors are RoHS compliant. The standard hermetic M12 connector is not designed as a pressure resistant connector even though the inserts are capable of withstanding high pressure differentials.
