I’ve designed some similar waterproof connectors for my motor wires. They will be submerged in water when starting so I have a few questions:
What would happen if water got into the motor wire connectors? Would it short circuit the ESC? I assume water would need to get into at least two of the connectors to create an electrical path.
Is it ok to use silicone grease where the connectors interface with each other (gold to gold) or will the dielectric properties prevent a good contact even though it’s a tight fit?
Does anyone ever use silicone grease in the battery contacts to prevent arcing when connecting the batteries? If I have a switch filled with grease would it prevent arcing inside the switch? Would it lower the amp rating of the switch?
Is XT150 ok to use for motor wires or should I be using AS150 instead?
Here is my connector design:
