DTM Connectors

Compact, Rugged & Reliable

Our DEUTSCH DTM connectors fill the need for lower amperage, multi-pin connectors. These connectors are environmentally sealed and stand up to harsh environments. DEUTSCH DTM connectors can be mounted in-line, flanged, and used for PCB mount applications. The connectors are made of rugged thermoplastic and feature silicone rear wire and interfacial seals that allow the connectors to withstand conditions of extreme temperature and moisture.

Performance Specifications:

For DEUTSCH DTM Series Connectors

DEUTSCH electrical connectors will stand up to the harsh environmental challenges that are common to industrial markets that require advanced performance. Proper parts, procedures, and tooling must be used.

  • Temperature: Operating at temperatures from -55° C to +125° C continuous at rated current.
  • Durability: No electrical or mechanical defects after 100 cycles of engagement and disengagement.
  • Vibration: No unlocking or unmating and exhibits no mechanical or physical damage after sinusoidal vibration levels of 20 G’s at 10 to 2000 Hz in each of the three mutually perpendicular planes. No electrical discontinuities longer than 1 microsecond.
  • Physical Shock: No unlocking, unmating, or other unsatisfactory result during or after 50 G’s in each of three mutually perpendicular planes. No electrical discontinuities longer than 1 microsecond. MIL-STD 202, Method 213, Condition “C”.
  • Fluid Resistance: Connectors show no damage when exposed to most fluids used in industrial applications.
  • Insulation Resistance: 1000 megohms minimum at 25° C.
  • Moisture Resistance: Properly wired and mated connections will withstand immersion under three feet of water without loss of electronic qualities or leakage.
  • Dielectric Withstanding Voltage: Current leakage less than 2 milliamps at 1500 VAC.
  • Thermal Cycle: No cracking, chipping or leaking after 20 test cycles from -55° C to +125° C.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:    What is a DTM connector?

A:     DEUTSCH DTM environmentally sealed connectors are designed for cable to cable, cable to board, and cable to device applications. DTM connectors are used in harsh environment applications where even a small degradation in connection may be critical.

Q:    What are the appropriate applications for DTM connectors?

A:     Truck, Bus, Off-highway, Construction, Agriculture, Mining, Emergency Vehicles, Forestry, Recreational, Marine, Motorcycle

 

Q:    When should I use DTM connectors?

A:     DEUTSCH DTM connectors provide reliability and performance on the engine or transmission, under the hood, on motor controllers, solenoid interfaces, on the chassis, or in the cab. DTM connectors offer field proven reliability and rugged quality. The DTM design strengths include optional flange mounting, multi-pin arrangements, lower costs, and design flexibility. DTM connectors offer the designer the ability to use multiple size 20 contacts, each with 7.5 amp continuous capacity, within a single shell.
