The caps are IP67 rated and help prevent the build-up of moisture, dust, and dirt in the connector’s mating face.
Due to the design of the internal contact seal, Nautilus connectors are already sealed unmated to IP68. “The caps will provide further peace of mind to connections left exposed in harsh environments,” according to the company. “Applications such as outdoor portable equipment requiring connections to be made and disconnected regularly can benefit from a cap when an antenna is not in use to help prevent the collection of dust and dirt when out in the field.”
The caps achieve an IP67 seal with SMA (rear mount), N-Type and TNC versions of the Nautilus range – and are also options as dust caps for non-Nautilus variants of these connector types.
The brass alloy caps are finished in nickel plating (N and TNC) or gold plating (SMA) and are available with or without chain attachment.
The company is offering test reports to be used alongside its other poduct resources and drawings.
