TE Connectivity – Multi-pin connectors for harsh applications carry up to 7.5A per contact


TE Connectivity’s (TE) DEUTSCH DTM connectors are capable of withstanding the harsh conditions to which the components in trucks and lorries, construction equipment and farming vehicles are exposed.

Intended for use in cable-to-cable and cable- to-board connections, the DEUTSCH DTM plugs and receptacles are available in 2-, 3-, 4-, 6-, 8- and 12-pin configurations. Each contact can carry a 7.5A continuous current.

The DTM connectors may be mounted in-line, flanged, or mounted on a PCB.

The connectors are made of rugged thermoplastic and feature silicone rear wire and interfacial seals which enable them to withstand conditions of extreme temperature and moisture. They suffer no damage when exposed to most fluids used in industrial applications. In addition, properly wired and mated connections will withstand immersion under three feet of water without loss of electrical qualities or leakage.

Thermal cycling tests show that the DTM connectors suffer no cracking, chipping or leakage after 20 cycles from -55°C to 125°C.
