This guide provides instructions for how to properly install the rubber O-ring into our panel products. It is applicable to all TEP series HMI devices. The rubber O-rings are used to provide secure, waterproof sealing when two parts are assembled, and it is important that they perform optimally. For this purpose, proper installation is necessary. The installation process, when performed correctly, is capable of increasing the service life of the component as well as the application.

Installation steps

Please follow the steps below to properly install the waterproof rubber O-ring.

Steps 1 and 2: Prepare your device and O-ring.

Step 3: Align the O-ring with the groove.

Step 4: Press the O-ring into the corners of the O-ring groove.

Step 5: Press the O-ring into the center.
