ERICH JAEGER - The OEM supplier of waterproof EXPERT sockets


Following the introduction in 2015, a large number of automobile and commercial vehicle manufacturers now rely on ERICH JAEGER's watertight EXPERT sockets.

The 100% waterproof 13P/12V EXPERT connector system sets a new standard in this segment and follows our philosophy of making the connections between towing vehicle and trailer significantly easier and safer.

The sophisticated, double contact system with primary and secondary lock makes together with individual wire seals the penetration of moisture into the vehicle board network impossible. Even under the most extreme conditions, the EXPERT system provides 100% water-tightness. Also the draining of a sport boat into the water (submerging of the connection system) masters our connector without difficulty. The EXPERT connector system satisfies all requirements of original equipment manufacturers in the automotive industry such as the protection IPX7 (waterproof up to 0.5m depth) and IPX9K (protection against water during high pressure-/ steam jet cleaning). In addition to the water-tightness our new 13P / 12V system has greatly simplified the installation options (Plug & Play).
