M8 protective caps, when applied to unmated connectors, ensure a protection rating of IP67. The caps feature a PA (polyamide) body, PUR (polyurethane) retaining strap, and a nitrile rubber (NBR) seala common material used for o-rings. Caps for use on cable plugs feature a retaining ring which allows the cap to be easily fixed onto a cable. When caps are correctly mated to a connector, they ensure a protection rating of IP67 which means the connectors are waterproof to a 1-meter depth for a 30-minute time period.
