● Recommended temperature – Check the maximum operating temperature of the waterproof cable sealing sleeve. Temperatures above recommended operating temperatures can damage seals and put your electronics at risk.

● Cable range diameter – Determine thread specifications and thread standards for the cable gland. If you have any questions, please contact us and we will help you find the ideal solution!

● Insulation – To ensure water resistance and long-time operation, it is recommended to use a double-wall bonded heat shrinkable pipe and insulation pipe for reinforcement. Self-adhesive tape (or heat-shrinkable waterproof tape) should be a high-pressure product to ensure insulation safety.
