    I need to look into making a pcb that acts as a connector interface for a box that will have vacuum at 30inHg. What do I need to think about? What type of connectors do I have to look for? I am guessing that I cannot just use a mini fit jr connector?

    Google up 'gland' connectors. There should be several types that are air or moisture sealed

    I wanted to use that, but they wanted to use a PCB.... It seems a little overkill to me, but you know how some engineering places are....

    Just FYI...if you are measuring in InHg, you are not dealing with high vacuum.
