Product Line Overview

Deutsch DT Series

Deutsch DT Series of environmentally-sealed, connectors are designed specifically for cable to cable applications on the engine or transmission, under the hood, on the chassis or in the cab. Where signal level circuits in harsh environmental conditions, where even a small degradation in connection may be critical, the Deutsch DT Series general purpose connectors will provide the reliability and performance at the lowest cost.

Thermoplastic (-550 C to + 1250 C rated) housings and silicone seals are used to allow the connector to withstand conditions of extreme temperature and moisture. The connector may be employed with either solid-copper crimp type contacts for critical circuits or budget-minded stamped and formed contacts. In either selection, the spring action is designed in the socket and shrouded by a stainless steel hood that provides closed entry for positive axial alignment during mating, and eliminates probe damage from occurring. Contact insertion and withdrawal require no special tools and are retained in locked position by dielectic fingers, molded as an integral part of the housing. Secondary locks are assembled at the mating interfaces. If by chance the secondary locks are not properly seated during assembly, they will be pressed into locked position during the mating of the connector.


PART NUMBERING SYSTEM (DT & DT Bussed)



Assembly Contact Insertion (DTM, DT, DTP)


1. Grasp crimped contact approximately 1.0” (25.4mm) behind the contact barrel.
2. Hold connector with rear grommet facing you.
3. Push contact straight into connector grommet until a click is felt. A slight tug will confirm that it is properly locked in place.


4. Once all contacts are in place, insert orange wedge: receptacles with half holes aligning with contacts. Plugs with contacts aligning behind full holes. The orange wedge will snap into place.

NOTE: The receptacle is shown use the same procedure for plug.


Contact Removal


1. Remove orange wedge using needlenose pliers to pull wedge straight out.
2. To remove the contacts, gently pull wire backwards, while at the same time releasing the locking finger by moving it away from the contact with a screwdriver.
3. Hold the rear seal in place, as removing the contact will displace the seal.
