What are DTHD Series Connectors?
DTHD series of connectors are a part of the Deutsch line of connectors that have been designed to handle the toughest environmental conditions out there. The HD at the end literally means “heavy-duty”. This goes to show that the DTHD series connectors are the most durable environmentally sealed connectors you will find. They are known as environmentally sealed connectors as they seal out moisture and other environmental hazards. DTHD series connectors are known for their ease of installation, durability, and field serviceability. These are the connectors you will find in applications that call for a high degree of protection, durability, and amperage.
"DTHD series connectors are the most durable environmentally sealed connectors you will find."
Where are these products implemented?
DTHD series connectors are implemented when protection is required
DTHD series connectors are implemented in applications where the highest degree of protection possible is needed. Perfect for new installations as well as replacement parts, DTHD series connectors are designed with durability in mind. This makes them perfect for marine applications. If you have faded connectors or cracked connectors, then these are the parts you've been looking for. We carry every tool and accessory you would need to install them as well. Now that we have covered the basics, let us take a look at what benefits DTHD connectors offer.
What are some benefits of DTHD series connectors?
Some benefits of the DTHD series of connectors include environmental protection, high levels of durability, multiple resistances, and use in high amperage applications. These are just a few of the factors that make DTHD series of connectors the superior choice in harsh conditions such as the marine environment. In the toughest environments, you need the toughest connectors possible. Connectors that can not just handle the environment but thrive in it. Many manufacturers choose to use the DTHD series connectors for their field serviceability. It allows them to save time and money in the form of reduced labor. Field serviceability makes maintenance a much easier task. Rather than having to cut, strip, and re-terminate wires, the DTHD series of connectors allows you to access the connection point at any time.
What protections do DTHD series connectors offer?
The DTHD series of connectors offers a high level of protection from hazards that include impact, abrasion, and moisture. This goes back to the idea that they are environmentally sealed connectors meaning that they are built with the best protection possible. It is this level of protection that makes them prevalent in the marine and industrial industries, both of which are known for their tough conditions. Let us take a quick look at some of the places you may use DTHD series connectors.
Where would I use DTHD series connectors?
DTHD series connectors are used in nearly every environment. The high level of environmental resistances gives DTHD series connectors an advantage that others do not have. Do you really think that any connector could handle long term use in an industrial setting or marine environment? What about environments that must handle dust, dirt, and moisture? The answer to both of these questions is no. You would want the highest quality connectors giving the highest level of protection possible. This is why these types of connectors have been developed.
The DTHD series of connectors have been designed to meet the needs of higher amperage, single pin applications. They offer from 60 to 100 amp continuous power and work with 10 AWG to 6 AWG wires. The DTHD series connectors are built to work with size 4 contacts and size 8 contacts depending on the connector style you choose. We often get the question; what is the HD for? In case you missed it above, the HD stands for “heavy-duty” which perfectly describes their durability, reliability, and longevity. It is no wonder that so many industries and professionals choose to use DTHD series connectors in everyday service.
DTHD Series Connectors work with 8-6 Gauge wires for 100 Amp continuous power
What other connectors are available?
The DTHD series connectors are built for heavy-duty applications but there are other series for less demanding situations. Pacer also carries the DTM, DT, and DTP series of connectors. This provides you the opportunity to select the size that best corresponds to the needs of your projects. You can rest assured that all our DTM, DT, DTP, and DTHD series of connectors are built with the same high level of protection.
