Industrial Waterproof Connectors for Outdoor Security Surveillance

3 minutes, 53 seconds Read

Outdoor security surveillance has become an essential technological tool for creating safe and livable communities in public places such as transportation routes, squares, airports, and residential areas. The demanding requirements of outdoor environments, including high-capacity data transmission and long-term stability, pose challenges for industrial waterproof connectors used in security surveillance systems. In this blog, we will talk about outdoor industrial waterproof connectors, focusing on fiber optic, RJ45 connectors, and HDMI connectors, as well as the advantages they offer in outdoor security surveillance applications.

Waterproof and Corrosion Resistance for Outdoor Environments:

Outdoor security surveillance devices are exposed to various environmental factors such as rain, moisture, and corrosive substances like sulfur dioxide in the air. The industrial connectors from Shine Industry offer excellent waterproofing and corrosion resistance.

These M12 X connectors utilize patented waterproof structural and sealing designs, enabling them to achieve the highest IP68 waterproof rating. The current standard configuration is IP65/IP67, which fulfills the waterproofing requirements of outdoor security surveillance.

Regarding corrosion resistance, the connectors’ housing is made of corrosion and rust-resistant alloy materials, further enhanced with chrome plating and anodization processes. This results in a denser and more corrosion-resistant housing, capable of withstanding salt spray testing for over 48 hours without any concerns about environmental corrosion.

Temperature Endurance for Seasonal Variations:

Outdoor security surveillance devices are exposed to extreme high and low temperatures and damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation throughout the year. Shine Industry’s waterproof connectors are constructed using high-quality zinc alloy and aluminum alloy materials, allowing them to withstand high and low temperatures. The thermal expansion coefficient of the internal insulation material accommodates temperature changes, preventing excessive stress that could lead to loosening or breakage.

These industrial connectors can operate in a wide temperature range from -40°C to +85°C, making them impervious to the effects of high or low-temperature environments. The metal housing’s UV resistance is generally superior to plastic materials, ensuring long-term stability and reliability when exposed to UV radiation in outdoor environments.

Robust and Stable Connections:

Outdoor security surveillance systems are prone to continuous external vibrations, such as high-frequency vibrations transmitted from road traffic or wind impacts. The M12 waterproof connectors employ a fully metallic housing made of high-strength alloy materials, providing compression and tensile strength resistance and ensuring long-term durability against external vibration sources.

Furthermore, the coupling connection between plugs and sockets utilizes a patented three-point spiral locking structure, offering a more secure and reliable connection. With a separation force greater than 100N, these connectors remain unaffected by continuous external vibrations or wind impacts during severe weather conditions, preventing any loosening or detachment.

High-Quality and Smooth Transmission:

To ensure stable signal and data transmission, connectors used in outdoor security surveillance systems must support the high-speed and seamless transmission of high-quality video and audio signals. Shine Industry’s RJ45 waterproof connectors can accommodate CAT5e, CAT6, and CAT6a standards, enabling transmission rates up to Gbps. The single-mode fiber optic connectors in the M12 series can achieve transmission rates of up to 10Gbps, while HDMI fiber optic cables meet the requirements for ultra-high-definition data transmission, reaching Gbps-level speeds.

All three connector types ensure stable high-speed transmission, transmitting security surveillance data rapidly over long distances with low latency. This eliminates congestion, stuttering, or data loss issues, meeting outdoor security surveillance systems’ real-time and integrity requirements.

The Powerful All-Plastic Anti-Corrosion Solution:

In addition to the M12 series industrial waterproof connectors, Shine Industry’s YM series is also a suitable choice for outdoor security surveillance applications. The two series share many similarities, such as offering a comprehensive range of connector types for power, signal, and data transmission and utilizing a similar spiral locking structure for coupling connections. Therefore, the two series can be interchanged and used interchangeably in terms of installation dimensions and electrical performance.

The most significant difference between the two connectors is the housing material. While the M12 series connectors feature a metal housing, the YM series connectors are made of plastic. Consequently, the former exhibits stronger resistance to vibration and impact, while the latter provides better corrosion resistance. However, both connector series meet the technical requirements for outdoor security surveillance applications, regardless of whether vibration resistance or corrosion resistance is the priority.


Outdoor security surveillance systems require reliable and high-performance industrial waterproof connectors to withstand the challenges posed by outdoor environments. Shine Industry’s 4 pin M12 connectors offer a premium solution for outdoor security surveillance applications with exceptional waterproofing, corrosion resistance, temperature endurance, robust connections, and high-quality transmission capabilities. Additionally, the YM series connectors provide an alternative with excellent anti-corrosion properties. By leveraging these advanced connectors, security surveillance systems can ensure stable and efficient connections, enabling the effective monitoring and protection of outdoor public spaces.
