Deutsch DT Technical Info

The Deutsch DT Series of environmentally-sealed connectors are designed specifically for Deutsch cable to cable applications where even a small degradation in connection may be critical, the Deutsch DT Series general purpose connectors help provide reliability and performance at the lowest cost.

Deutsch’s corrosion resistant thermoplastic bodies are manufactured from high quality materials selected for their ability to withstand years of environmental exposure. Thermoplastic housings and silicone seals have a wide operating temperature range (-55°C to +125°C rated). It means the Deutsch DT series connectors will maintain a reliable connection even in conditions of extreme temperature and moisture.


Thermoplastic (-55°C to +125°C rated) housings and silicone seals are used, allowing the connector to withstand conditions of extreme temperature and moisture. Deutsch DT connectors simplify design and provide exceptional performance in critical environments. The Deutsch Industrial Common Contact System is a unique system of interchangeable and intermatable contacts that can be used in many Deutsch industrial connectors. The connector will accept either solid-copper crimp type contacts for critical circuits or budget-minded stamped and formed contacts. Easy-to-use indent crimpers create a high-quality crimp allows Deutsch contacts to provide reliable, low resistance power and data transmission.

Many manufacturers count on Deutsch DT connector kits to maintain the connection of essential equipment. The expense of even minor damage to electrical systems can quickly add up as entire operations need to be stopped while the problem is diagnosed. The Deutsch DT Series offers field-proven reliability so you can be confident they are right for your application.

Applications for the  Deutsch DT series include automotive (chassis, cabin, engine bay, driveline, interior, aftermarket accessories, caravans, 4X4), Marine, Harsh Environment & Heavy Equipment.

When ordering a connector it is not always as simple matter of determining between 'male' and 'female' because this can refer to both the housing gender and the contact gender. Many manufacturers offer a given housing gender with both pin and socket. A common example of such confusion occurs in the Deutsch Industrial DT range, where the plug (or male connector) actually contains socket (or female) contacts. For this reason please specify both the contact and housing gender at the time of order.

The IP Rating of a connector or accessory relates to the degree of ingress protection provided by that component. The first digit of the code relates to the degree of protection against access to hazardous parts (conductors etc) and against solid foreign objects. The second digit refers to the degree of protection against the ingress of water. For two examples of this system, consider the most commonly seen IP ratings in our products: IP44 and IP67. IP44 4: Protection from solid objects ≤1mm | 4: Protection against splashing water IP67 6: Protection from dust-sized objects | 7: Protection against immersion in water at depth of 1m for 30mins A complete guide to all IP Ratings is available here.

These terms are used by Phase 3 and ITT Veam on their high-current connectors.The source is considered the half of the connection from which the power is sourced; or the half supplying the electrical power. In an emergency power application, the generator is the source and would be fitted with Panel Source (panel-mount) connectors, a Panel Source Powersafe Box, or Line Source (inline) connectors on pigtails. The drain is the half of the connection which drains the power from the source. In the same emergency power application described above, the network receiving the emergency power supply is the drain and would be fitted with Line Drain connectors, Panel Drain connectors or a Panel Drain Powersafe Box.

We commonly deal with both American Wire Gauge (AWG) and square millimetre (mm2) dimensions as the units used by manufacturers can vary. To convert between measurements please refer this conversion chart.
