Segue Manufacturing Services, a leading integrated manufacturing solutions company, has recently expanded their capabilities in water tight cable assembly applications. This capability will allow Segue to meet customer demands for water ingress challenges and expand their capabilities in the market place providing solutions to meet IP67 and IP68 specifications.
The Ingress Protection Rating System (IP) is a classification system showing the degrees of protection from solid objects and liquids. Waterproof Interconnects can be classified into different grades including IP67 and IP68 for waterproof connectors. IP 67 rating means the interconnect is capable of withstanding water immersion between 15 cm and 1 meter for 30 minutes. IP68 waterproof interconnects are designed for demanding environment and continuous water immersion.
“We have seen a recent trend in solving customer problems involving applications that require little to no water ingress on cable assemblies and sub-assemblies, said Mark Griffith, Segue’s Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing. “We have solved many water tight applications in the Industrial, Medical, Military, Automotive and Recreational Vehicle markets based on our advanced molding and epoxy techniques,” Griffith stated.
Griffith also stated, “We continue to invest in capital equipment to ensure that we have leading edge technical and product solutions. We also want to stay ahead of the curve and continue to automate our processes to ensure that we continue to offer our customers competitive solutions.”
