IP69K connectors for sensors in harsh environmentsITT Interconnect Solutions is introducing new METR1X connectors for sensor applications in harsh environments. For example, the METR1X connectors can be placed directly on a diesel engine, providing EMI shielding and offering resistance to corrosion, vibration, shock, motor oils and salt spray (according to DIN EN 60068).

Available in 2-, 3- or 4-way socket and pin format, the new connectors benefit from a crimped stainless steel housing with a choice of formats, sealing up to IP69K (only with mated pairs of METR1X connectors), an M12 mating face, gold-plated CGK size 20 crimp contacts and secondary locking.

Further technical specifications for the METR1X connectors include an operating temperature range from -40 to +150degC, a flammability rating according to the UL94-V0 standard, a current rating of 4A and a voltage rating of 100V DC.
