Square-flange and box-mount hermetic-seal connectors require a seal between the connector and panel.
To minimize leak paths, machine the mounting panel with blind threaded holes. These blind mounting holes will prevent leakage between the internal and external environments. A gasket will seal the remaining surfaces. For optimized leak performance, the surface finish of the panel should be 16RMS or better.
