Molex: Compact Squba Sealed WtW Connectors Earn IP68 Rating

March 8, 2022

Molex has announced that its Squba sealed wire-to-wire connectors have earned an IP68 rating for meeting the stringent international standard of waterproofing and resistance to dust, dirt, sand and other contaminants. In achieving this milestone, Molex addresses ever-increasing demand for compact connectors ideally suited for a variety of consumer device, commercial vehicle, industrial automation, connected home and other space-constrained applications where protection from harsh environmental conditions are critical.

“As devices shrink in size yet grow in capabilities, product designers must balance greater demands for reliability with the realities of having less space for electrical components,” said Ken Stead, director, power products, Power & Signal Business Unit, Molex. “Our compact, IP68-rated Squba connectors optimize power delivery in one of the smallest, most durable form factors, giving product developers unparalleled peace of mind, as well as unprecedented design freedom and flexibility.”

Ensuring Reliable Power Delivery for Diverse Applications

Molex’s Squba connectors feature Ingress Protection (IP) at the IP68 certification level as defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission. This designation demonstrates that Squba connectors are fully resistant to dust, dirt and sand as well as the effects of being immersed in up to 1.5 meters (nearly five feet) of water for up to 30 minutes.

The Molex Squba 1.80mm pitch connector holds a 6.0A current rating, enabling transmission of more power over smaller gauge wire for additional space savings and reduced costs. The connector’s narrow pitch further alleviates space constraints while availability in 2-to-10 circuits and support for high operating temperatures offer additional product design options.

Equally important, Molex’s Squba connectors are made with rubber-molded plastic and include a durable cap to protect the seal from damage during shipping, handling, assembly and use. As a result, these smaller, ruggedized connectors are optimized to deliver unfailing performance for a wide range of applications and wet, dusty environments where connector size, resiliency and quality are paramount.


  • Compact connectors for space-constrained applications
  • Sealed components with proven performance
  • Economical power delivery
  • Primary lock enables 30N terminal retention
  • Pitch: 1.80 and 3.60mm
  • Current: 6.0 and 14.0A
  • Circuits: 2 to 10 and 2 to 4
