waterproof case for wire-out electronics – Small

$89.95

This is our medium-sized wire-through case. Ideal for radio mics that won’t fit in the smaller 158.

Also fits some insulin pumps.

(code 548)

Description

Key Features
  • Use all buttons and switches through the case
  • Like most of our cases it’ll float if you drop it in the drink
  • Feed out a wire of up to 1/10th inch / 2.5mm diameter from the case
  • The seams are high-frequency welded to form a super-strong bond
  • Waterproofness Warning!: This case features our ‘TC’ Aquaclip which makes the case waterproof to IPX6 (a quick dunking should be fine, but not prolonged immersion).
  • As used by film crews and sound engineers all over the world!
  • The other two sizes are the 158B Radio Microphone Case and 558 Connected Electronics

Belt Loop
The loop on the back of the case is where you insert the belt.


This is the maximum size of device that will fit:

Tip: to get the circumference, add the width to the depth and then multiply this by 2


How waterproof is it?
IPX6 waterproofing level
It’s Stormproof (protected against powerful water jets – click on the icon for more)

Can people swim with it?
Our testing shows that the TC clamp will let a tiny amount of water in after a period of total immersion. So the best advice we can give is to wear it in the small of your back if you’re swimming on your front, and on your tummy if you’re swimming on your back, so that it spends as little time submerged as possible. We are talking here about splashing around in the pool or the sea, but we are NOT talking about endurance/long-distance swimming.

Important Note regarding Insulin Pumps and Aquapac cases

Aquapac commissioned research by Imperial College London into the suitability of their cases for use with insulin pumps. Results show that in some circumstances insulin flow rate can be reduced by the case. In particular, low flow rates are impeded and as such Aquapac can make no claim regarding the suitability of these cases with insulin pumps. Use of these cases with insulin pumps is entirely at the discretion of the user.

We are advised to recommend that users of Aquapac cases with insulin pumps regularly check their blood sugar levels. Furthermore we strongly recommend that you get the green light from your consultant before use.

The tests were conducted by Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine using a Roche Accu-Check Spirit insulin pump at a temperature of 20C at flow rates of 2U/hr and 10U/hr. The amounts of insulin delivered over 60 minutes observed were as follows:

2U/hr not in a case – 0.0131g (flow rate of 100%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 150 – 0.0106g (flow rate of 81%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 150 – 0.0056g (2nd test model)(flow rate of 42%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 550 – 0.0121g (flow rate 92%)

10U/hr not in case – 0.0864g (flow rate of 100%)
10U/hr in Aquapac 150 – 0.0878g (flow rate of 100%)
10U/hr in Aquapac 550 – 0.0903g (flow rate of 100%)

Special Instructions for the ‘TC’ Clamp

To Open

instructions diagram
click to expand
  1. Flip the two levers up, one at a time.
  2. Twist the two levers out.

To Close

  1. Place the wire or tube carefully under the retaining arm. The wire/tube must exit through the groove in the clamp.
  2. Place the two halves of the clamp back together so that the wire is held gently in place. Do not squeeze them together hard.
  3. Twist both the levers in, one at a time. Twist both levers before attempting step 6.
  4. Flip the levers over to seal the clamp.

Important Notes

Cases with this clamp are for surface use only, but will offer protection from temporary submersion. They are not recommended for prolonged submersion.

When not using the case leave the TC clamp open. If not the wire or tube could eventually cause a permanent distortion of the foam, risking leakage.

As long as you follow this instruction the clamp will be watertight with or without a wire/tube.

The maximum thickness of wire/tube around which the TC clamp will seal is 1/10th inch (2.5mm).

Care Instructions

Warning

Our warranty covers this Aquapac only, and not any items you may put inside it. We recommend that you insure the contents separately.

Waterproofness
Our range has been independently tested to international waterproofing standards. However, the waterproofness of your Aquapac depends on your closing and opening it carefully, and on it not being damaged either before or during use. Please follow all instructions carefully.

Before Every Use
Seal something worthless inside, then submerge in a basin to check the waterproofness.

Aquapac Aquaclip waterproof seal 115mm

Closing the Case
Make sure that all parts are properly attached. Wipe away any grit or sand, which could hamper the seal. Always turn the levers as far as they will go. They should lock smoothly, if not there may be something impeding the seal.

Opening the Case
Never open your Aquapac in or under water. In order to stop any water getting in when you are opening it, first shake off any water then dry with a towel. Hold the case with the opening at the bottom as you open it.

Ongoing Care
Our materials are strong but can still be punctured. Avoid sharp or abrasive objects and protect from impacts. After regular contact with chlorinated or salt water, or with sun creams, wash in soapy water and then rinse with fresh water. Do not use bleach, alcohol or proprietary cleaners.

Materials
Aquapacs are made from a variety of materials, mostly plastics which make them rustproof. These include TPU, ABS, nylon and polypropylene.

Extreme Temperatures
Although the case material has been UV-stabilized – which means that the plastic shouldn’t be discoloured or broken down by sunlight – the Aquapac won’t protect anything inside it from heat or sunlight. The soft case material is functional and flexible in air temperatures -40ºC to +60ºC (-40ºF to +140ºF), and water temperatures up to +40ºC (+100ºF).

Humidity and Condensation
In humid climates there will be moisture in the air sealed inside the case. Desiccant sachets will absorb the moisture, keeping the contents completely dry. We recommend use of desiccant sachets in all Aquapacs in humid climates. You can purchase spare sachets – see Accessories.

Warning
This is not a toy. It may contain small parts which may be a choking hazard to children under 3. Keep small parts away from children.
