WEATHERLOCKTM

ERICH JAEGER WEATHERLOCKTM technology sets a new standard in the industry for weather protection. It follows our philosophy that we make connections between vehicles and trailers easier and safer.

Protecting a vehicle's electrical system from the weather has become an important factor in ensuring a safe and robust electrical connection. Water penetration can create havoc with a vehicle's electronics. ERICH JAEGER is at the forefront at providing weatherproof connection solutions.

WEATHERLOCKTM technology includes but is not limited to sophisticated, double contact systems with primary and secondary locks together with individual wire seals that makes the penetration of moisture into the vehicle's electrical systems impossible. Even under the most extreme conditions, the system provides 100% water-tightness. Many other technologies are employed to improve performance and longevity in the harshest weather conditions.

The connector system satisfies all requirements of original equipment manufacturers in the automotive industry such as protection standard IPX7 (waterproof up to 1.0m depth) and IPX9K (protection against water during high pressure-/ steam jet cleaning).

Benefits:

  • Safe and Reliable connection.
  • Prevents water ingress into vehicle's electrical systems thereby preventing a costly repair.
  • Better connection quality due to increased corrosion protection of contact surfaces.
Longer service life.
Reduced downtime due to electrical connection issues.
