I'm having trouble locating a twist-lock connector for the ethernet connection on an Encam (Herospeed) IPcam. It all works fine with a normal RJ45 connetor but the connector on the camera has what looks like a waterproof outer cover. Please see attached image. Can anyone identify the type and/or a source for the connector?

Thanks,
Rob.

Take a look at these.

Bottom line: even if you find the correct fitting, if that connector is exposed to the elements, I suggest you:
  • Use dielectric grease on both the male RJ-45 and in the female where it connects.
  • Wrap the entire junction with self-fusing rubber tape, don't be stingy, go past barrel connector and on out pigtail a couple of inches on both ends.
  • Over-wrap all that self-fusing rubber tape TIGHTLY with 3M 33+ or 88 to aid and speed up the curing process but it will remain on.

Coax-Seal will go a long way as many have suggested here :)

The included waterproofing connectors can't be trusted
