• How connectors perform in harsh corrosive environments, and why reliability matters - White Paper (July 2016) - This white paper presents technical guidelines that drive connector development for harsh and corrosive environments. It explains the main factors driving corrosion and how to make the best interconnection choices for a long-lasting and reliable solution in corrosive conditions.
• Environmentally Sealed Connectors - White Paper (Updated February 2018) - Sealed connectors are used in many applications where leakage into or out of equipment must be avoided. Sealing is a very complex science itself, as it involves many physical aspects including mechanical design, materials science, surface science and fluid behavior. Three major application groups exist that require different sealing levels and different solutions: environmental sealing, hermetic sealing and high pressure sealing. This paper focuses on environmental sealing as encountered in many application areas, specifically as it relates to rain and dust.
