  • Fix screw locking according to IEC61076-2-106 standard

  • Pre-molded with PVC/PUR cable, length can be customized

  • A coded 3pin, 4pin, 5pin, 8pin, 12pin, 17pin

  • Protection level IP67

  • EMC shielding

  • RoHS, REACH compliant

  1. Prepare the wires: The first step is to prepare the wires that will be connected. This may involve stripping the insulation off the wires to expose the bare metal, and twisting the wires together to create a tight connection.

  2. Select the appropriate connector: There are many types of waterproof heat shrink connectors available, so it is important to select the appropriate connector for your specific application. Make sure to choose a connector that is rated for the appropriate voltage and amperage, and that is compatible with the size of wire you are using.

  3. Slide the connector onto the wires: Once you have selected the appropriate connector, slide it onto the wires so that it covers the area where the wires are twisted together.

  4. Apply heat: Use a heat gun or other heat source to apply heat to the connector. As the heat is applied, the connector will shrink around the wires, creating a tight seal and waterproof barrier.

  5. Inspect the connection: After the connector has cooled, inspect the connection to ensure that it is secure and waterproof. You may want to use a multimeter or other testing tool to check the continuity of the connection.

Waterproof heat shrink connectors are a great way to provide a secure, waterproof connection between two wires. They are commonly used in marine applications, automotive applications, and other environments where moisture and water resistance are important. It is important to follow all safety guidelines and manufacturer instructions when using these connectors, and to ensure that the connectors are rated for the specific application in which they will be used.
