Protective caps

Protective caps for connectors – small components with a big impact

Our protective caps are easy to assemble and keep dirt off connectors. They are compatible with a selection of our SealStar and SealStar HMK connectors.

External influences as dust, dirt or water can harm connectors. Hence, we developed caps which protect and stabilize them. The protective caps are designed ergonomically and they close completely. This saves valuable installation space. The simple and secure catch with film hinges ensures a robust and torque-proof position at the housing.

Our protective caps are available for different pole numbers and cable outlets. They can be used for our connectors SealStar 1.2 and 2.8 as well as SealStar HMK 1.2.
