High-current IP68 / X9K waterproof connectors can carry up to 125A

Offering a current capacity of up to 125A, Hirose Electric's EV1
high-current waterproof connectors are IP67 water resistant in their unmated
state (EV1-62RA-3SB, EV1-62RA-2SB), and IP68 / X9K water resistant when
mated.

The use of a special rubber component for the internal seals enhances oil
and water resistance. Contacts can be crimped using readily-available JIS
standard tools (JIS C 9711).

The EV1 staggered panel flange design saves space. The lightweight shell is
constructed of an aluminium alloy. The EV1's highly reliable contact
structure allows for a high current capability, guards against vibration to
the contact and decreases contact resistance. The metal shell enhances EMI
shielding. Contact and connector design protects against accidental
electrical shock using IEC 60601 test procedure, says the company.
