Rugged power connectors
TE Connectivity introduced its single-pole Deutsch DTSK power connectors, designed for rugged, sealed applications. The heavy-duty thermoplastic connectors accept size Ø8 mm contacts that are rated up to 125 A. TE’s Deutsch DTSK connectors are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the trucking, busing, agricultural, mining, construction, and marine industries, as well as other industrial applications.
Designed with ease of use and simplicity in mind, the connectors feature latch-style mating and an integrated secondary lock. Individual wire seals with a rear protective cover help protect the connections from dirt, dust, and water ingress, making the DTSK connectors an effective option for applications that require an environmentally sealed connector. DTSK connectors can be used inline or mounted as pass-through connectors with the addition of an optional flange.
“There aren’t many single-pole, sealed power connectors available in the industrial and commercial vehicle and equipment market that can be used for inline or pass-through applications,” said Jean-Paul Gervais, Product Manager for TE’s Industrial & Commercial Transportation business. “Our Deutsch DTSK connectors offer simplicity in design for ease of use and safe assembly, installation, and field repair, while remaining a rugged solution that stands up to the harsh conditions faced in the truck, construction, agriculture, and similar industries.”
