A protective mounting assembly includes an electrical connector having a waterproof body surrounding and protecting a waterproof interface. Components signal leads are coupled to the interface at a first side thereof. A rigid foundation is rigidly coupled to the connectors waterproof body. A rigid positioning platform is rigidly coupled to the rigid foundation and defines at least one mounting position for the components. The components are positively oriented relative to the mounting positions. An elastomer material encapsulates the rigid foundation, positioning platform, components and a portion of the waterproof body in such a way that the connections at a second side of the connectors interface are accessible from the exterior of the elastomer material.
