SY Pintail connectors build an indoor/outdoor interconnect system that offers the performance and reliability of MIL bayonet connectors at the cost of a commercial (COTS) product. The SY13 (front panel mounting hole size 13mm), SY17 (front panel mounting hole size 17mm) and SY21 (front panel mounting hole size 21mm) series of multi-pin, bayonet coupling connectors will provide IP67 integrity when mated and will work reliably indoors, outdoors and in harsh UV and hostile wet environments. IP67 is intended for applications that will get ‘rained on’, or occasionally washed/drenched. They are not intended for use under continuous pressure. In consideration of the broad range of ‘rained on’ definitions, the industry appears to have agreed to a ‘test of immersion for 30 minutes, at a depth of 1 metre, or the equivalent air test at 1.45 psi. That is the Qualification Test. (Protected against the effects of temporary immersion between 15cm and 1metre. Duration of test 30minutes).
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 sealed to IP67 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.
