Superseal connectors from TE Connectivity are well-known thanks to their durability. They are widely used in the automotive and heavy industries, agriculture and wherever wires may be exposed to adverse conditions.
When designing systems based on Superseal connectors, it is worth learning about some of the most important features that characterize them.

All these features make Superseal connectors commonly used in many industries and widely appreciated by numerous specialists. However, in order to work efficiently and comfortably with them, it is worth equipping yourself with an appropriate crimper and an insulation stripper.
TME catalogue includes many types of Superseal connectors by TE Connectivity. The first parameter that should be taken into account when choosing connectors is the number of pins. Depending on the number of transmitted signals, we should choose a connector with an appropriate number of contacts. Another selection criterion for Superseal connectors is the place where they are to be installed. We can choose between connectors intended for mounting on printed circuit boards, used in the automotive industry, and wire-to-wire sockets and plugs. Additionally, it is worth paying attention to the standard in which the connector was made. This can be Superseal 1.0 or 1.5 – this designation indicates the contact size used in a given connector (1mm and 1.5mm, respectively).
In addition to the Superseal connector itself, we also need to equip ourselves with appropriate contacts, plugs and accessories. Contacts dedicated to Superseal connectors are available in both female and male versions, in the 1.0 or 1.5 standard. When selecting them, it is worth paying attention to the wire cross-section and its outer diameter, because the contacts are dedicated to wires with specific dimensions.
In all their applications, Superseal connectors are subjected to rigorous durability tests – both in the heavy industry and in the automotive industry, they are exposed to water, dust and other pollutants, as well as to mechanical damage. Therefore, it is worth paying attention to elements such as strain reliefs, sealing pins and wire gaskets, which are available at TME. It should be noted here that they are also dedicated to a specific type and size of the connector. By using dedicated strain reliefs we can protect the connector and the cable itself from damage or tearing at the exit of the housing. On the other hand, the application of Superseal connectors in places exposed to undesirable substances, such as oil or grease, requires the use of appropriate sealers, including sealing pins and wire gaskets.

The durability and efficiency of the connector largely depend on the careful and correct crimping and connection. It is worth using dedicated tools for crimping connectors. The process of crimping and connecting Superseal connectors is very easy with the 58583-1 crimper. Watch a video to see step-by-step how to prepare a connector to work quickly and efficiently:
