Nautilus is a range of panel mounted waterproof coaxial cable assemblies which offer IP67 & IP68 protection from moisture and particle ingress mated and unmated.
Waterproof coaxial connectors mounted in an enclosure feature an internal seal and O-Ring which prevents ingress of water and particles thru both the inner contact and thru panel. The graphic below shows an example of a thru panel ingress problem and SMA panel mount IP67/IP68 solution, there are solutions for both front and rear panel mounting:
