The two types of DEUTSCH contacts are solid and stamped & formed. Both styles of contacts are designed for crimp style terminations – no solder is required or recommended. A crimp style termination displaces the wire strands creating a superior bond between the wire and the contact. Several tools are available for hand and production wire crimping, wire insertion and removal, and wedgelock/terminal position assurance removal. The tools are specific to the solid contacts or the stamped & formed contacts. To create a proper crimp and achieve the highest performance specifications, contacts must be crimped with the recommended tooling.View Products
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.
Operating at temperatures from -55° C to +125° C continuous at rated current.
No electrical or mechanical defects after 100 cycles of engagement and disengagement.
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.
