The Deutsch Industrial connectors have become a fixture in a broad range of applications from the highest levels of motorsport to the toughest mine site.There are many different Deutsch harsh environment connectors (now manufactured by TE Connectivity) specifically designed for your required application.
Deutsch connectors in Australia have been embraced by engineers, technicians and repair agents because they encompass a complete spectrum of weatherproof options from a single pole Deutsch plug assembly DTHD to a 70-way DRC.
The complete range of Deutsch Connectors and Seals includes the 9 series with conversion Deutsch plug kits for Australia’s regulatory requirements. For more information including how to use the Deutsch connector you require, see our Deutsch Connector Catalogue (8.0Mb) or select from our detailed Deutsch product pages via the images below.

Proud To Be A Deutsch Connector Distributor
There are many different connectors for harsh environments and the process of connector selection is important. Wire gauge and pin count are the first details to consider before identifying the environmental challenges specific to each application. That includes if the electrical system will be exposed to heat, impact or vibration and if the connectors will be susceptible to moisture or chemicals and field serviceability. Deutsch connectors by TE Connectivity offer a variety of innovative solutions to suit almost any application and stand up to environmental challenges.We are proud to be a Deutsch connector distributor supplying high tech products in nearly every category imaginable. That includes Deutsche AS Series connectors for automotive to consumer electronics, health care, energy supply, and communication networks. There are over 500,000 possible connectors in the Deutsch and TE Connectivity range developed with simplicity of design and ease of use in mind to keep the world connected.
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.
