Durable Miniature Waterproof Connectors for Outdoor Application
Both K and T series are waterproof connectors that create a precision push pull self-locking connection system, the house boy designed an inner sleeve and seals gasket to prevent solids or liquids infiltration.
Compare to the K series waterproof connector, the T series size is smaller than K series. The T series connectors size is closed and compatible with the existing B series plugs and sockets, and have some mounting hole as B sockets. That is a proper waterproof connector solution instead of B series size M7/M9/M12/M15 when you have already cut a hole on your device board. You will not trouble with the size.
When the male and female mate, the T series miniature waterproof connector can show an excellent IP68 protection index, High packing density with multipole for space savings.

Manufacturing and Technical Details
Most frequent questions and answers
A miniature waterproof connector interconnects cables with a secured locking mechanism, you will find the push-pull self-locking connections is very easy to handle and stable.
With the self-latching system, you just have to push the plug into the receptacle to mate the connector. After latching the connector, nothing can break the connection. It doesn’t matter how firmly you pull the cable, the connection will stay just the same.

When you need to disengage the connector, you have to apply a single axial force on the outer release sleeve. The release sleeve will withdraw the plug from the socket by disengaging the latches.
A miniature waterproof connector is shielded with protective materials to protect the internal components from water. Here are the basic constructs:
- Outer shell
- Hexagon nut
- Retaining ring
- Earthing crown
- Female contact
- Outer shell
- Male contact
- Latch Sleeve
- Inner shell
- Split insert carrier
- Earthing cone
- Retaining ring
- Collet nut
Miniature waterproof connectors are used in most outdoor electronic applications, and waterproof push-pull connectors are ideal for applications exposed to moisture or water. Such as:
- They have metal brass which is corrosion-resistant, rugged, and come with secured and high-quality waterproof ability.
- Durable, rugged, and last for a long time.
- Come with different IP levels such as IP66, IP67, IP68, and you can select suitable IP-rated miniature waterproof connectors for your application.
- They are watertight and water vacuum, which provides high transmission efficiency.
Apart from those, push-pull miniature waterproof connectors provide more flexibility. For instance, you can purchase them in various sizes based on the number of pins they can hold.
INTE-AUTO push-pull miniature waterproof connectors are premium quality and are applicable for a wide range of applications.
In INTE-AUTO, We manufacture the following types:
- Cable in-line to line connectors – straight plug and free receptacle
- Cable plug to panel-mount socket.
- Male plug with female contacts and female receptacle with male contacts.
- Male plug with male contacts and female receptacle with female solder contacts
- Male plug with male contacts and female receptacle with PCB contacts
- Male plug with male contacts and female receptacle with elbow PCB contacts
You can use miniature waterproof connectors for various purposes. The primary reason to use them is to protect your connection from moisture.
A miniature waterproof connector is suitable when the water from the environment can go inside your application and affect your product’s working operation. Therefore, applications like medical equipment, military, security, and communication industry, test and measurement applications, industrial applications, energy, and automotive industry.

We see considerable development in medical, security, communication, and military equipment in the modern era. Besides, more advanced testing instruments are coming into the scene. Furthermore, we can see massive development in the automotive industry also. Many of those applications are used outdoors. Even indoor applications have the possibility to get in touch with water. Therefore, most applications of those industries need miniature waterproof connectors.
Figure 3 – IP rating
And when you are talking about miniature waterproof connectors, you are basically talking about the IP rating because that is the scale to measure how waterproof a connector is.
For better understanding, here we will discuss IP ratings definition.
The Basics of IP Rating
IP rating refers to Ingress protection which is established in the IEC 60529 standard. In that standard scale, the IP rating prefix consists of two numbers such as IP65, IP67, etc.
The first number in the IP rating represents protection against solid material, and the second number tells the protection against liquids. There are also regional or national equivalents for this standard, such as EN60529(Europe), ANSI60529 (America).
We prepared the following table to understand the number of IP ratings:
|Protection Level||First Number (Solid Rating)||Second Number (Liquid Rating)|
|0||No protection for this type||No protection for this type|
|1||Protection against solid materials bigger than 50 millimeters. (Not protected for deliberate contact but accidental contact)||Protects when the water is falling vertically.|
|2||Protects from Solid objects larger than 12 millimeters. For example, accidental finger contact.||Protects against water coming at 15-degree angles off vertical|
|3||Protects against solid material greater than 2.5 millimeters—for example, tools.||Protects direct water spray at any angle up to 60 degrees off vertical.|
|4||Protects against solid material greater than 2.5 millimeters. For example, insects, screws, and nails.||Protects from splashing water from any angle. Can survive a test with oscillated spray for 10 minutes. (Minimal ingress permitted)|
|5||Dust protection. Can shield dust or similar tiny objects. If there is any permitted object type that should not compromise the inner function.||Can protect from water projected in jets from any direction with a 6.3 mm nozzle.|
|6||Absolutely dust-tight. No dust or solid material can enter the system.||Protects from powerful water jets from any direction with a 12.5 mm nozzle.|
|7||N/A||Can protect from temporary submersion under the water of 1 meter. The test can be run for 30 minutes.|
|8||N/A||Protection against continuous immersion beyond 1 meter.|
|9||Protection against high pressure underwater. Suitable for deepwater application.|
Dust and water enter easily to an exposed connector and damage the device. Therefore, determining the intended use of the application at the early stage is crucial. That’s how you will be able to select the proper IP rating for the miniature waterproof connector
You will see IP-rated miniature waterproof connectors in many applications. Devices with accurate IP ratings will protect the internal circuitry from any unwanted dust or water ingress when no external equipment or plug is connected.
On the other hand, in industrial connections, the IP rating should be higher. The purpose of miniature waterproof connectors is to make the connection fully sealed.
The sealed area must prevent moisture and dust from entering the circuitry and cause any disruption in the signal. Moreover, you need a miniature waterproof connector that prevents the device from continuous water flow for a long time.
You should know that a proper IP-rated miniature waterproof connector can not create an IP-rated connection alone. The design should include an IP-rated mechanism to produce a fully IP-rated connection. Though you need an IP-rated design, an IP-rated miniature waterproof connector is mandatory to make the design properly functional.
