Pintail connectors build an indoor/outdoor interconnect system that offers the performance and reliability of MIL threaded connectors at the cost of a commercial (COTS) product. The SP11 (front panel mounting hole size 11mm), SP13 (front panel mounting hole size 13mm), SP17 (front panel mounting hole size 17mm), SP21 (front panel mounting hole size 21mm) and SP29 (front panel mounting hole size 29mm) series of multi-pin, threaded coupling connectors will provide IP68 integrity when mated (“Ingress of water in quantities causing harmful effects shall not be possible when the product is continuously immersed in water under conditions which shall be agreed between the manufacturer and the user”) and will work reliably indoors, outdoors and in harsh UV and hostile wet environments. Generally speaking environmental tests performed during design and qualification of IP68 Connectors are standardised to IP68 at a depth of 2 m and duration of 24 hours.
Using a combination of dual O ring sealing, high temperature PPS inserts, grommets and compression nuts, all insulator and contact areas in these connectors are fully sealed against environmental elements. The dual “O” rings (see above picture) mean that the integral backshell can be easily removed to allow accurate soldering of the incoming cable (see below). Plug and receptacle housings are keyed to ensure correct polarisation and tactile feedback when mating. Unlike many competitors’ products all the Pintail SP11 to SP29 connectors have the option of male or female contacts in any body shell; plus the ability to join cables with cable-end plug and in-line receptacle models.
Connector end caps are available to suit and IP68 integrity is achieved when male and female connectors are mated or when the IP68 end cap replaces a mating connector. Please see the following short video to view wiring procedure.

Now available in kits for ease of home installation our WCJK Series Waterproof Cable Joining Kits are supplied complete with all parts required to easily connect two cables together. The parts are rated to IP68 so are weatherproof and ideal for applications where cables may be immersed in shallow water or get wet frequently. Perfect for domestic use in such applications as ponds, water features, garden lighting and home security. There are also many commercial/ industrial applications within agriculture, food production, lighting and renewable energy. The range is available with 2 to 5 contacts using screw termination so only a screwdriver is required to terminate. Choose between 2 sizes to suit the outside diameter (OD) of your cable (kit does not include cable) to ensure the connectors have the perfect IP68 fit. The small OD version accepts cable OD 4.5 to 7mm and large OD version accepts cable OD of 7 to 12mm.
