What are DTM Series Connectors?
DTM series connectors are a line of Deutsch connectors built to handle lower amperages while withstanding harsh environmental conditions. In fact, they are environmentally sealed connectors meaning that they are built to handle the toughest marine conditions out there. This type of connector is known for its ease of use, durability, and field serviceability. You will find them in applications that call for a high level of circuit protection while requiring a degree of environmental protection as well.

Where are these products implemented?
DTM series connectors are implemented where high protection is required
DTM series connectors are implemented in applications where high level protection is needed for low amperage circuits. Not only ideal for new installations, but these connectors are also perfect for replacement parts as well. If you have faded connectors or damaged connectors, then these may just be the connectors you're looking for as replacements. To make it even easier, we carry all the proper tools and proper accessories you could need to install them. DTM series connectors are designed with longevity in mind. Now let us take a look at what gauges and applications they are built for.
What wire gauges and power applications are they built for?
As I said above, The DTM line of connectors is built for use with lower amperages. They are designed to work with 24-20 AWG wires or size 20 contacts. They are built in such a way that they offer 7.5-amp continuous capacity. People often ask us, what is the “M” for? Well, the “M” stands for “mini” which helps to encompass their amperage rating as well as their overall size. Do not be fooled by their compact size however, these connectors are extremely durable and designed with longevity in mind.
DTM Series Connectors work with 22-16 Gauge wires for 7.5 Amp continuous power
What are DTM Repair Packs and Kits?
Deutsch repair packs and kits are specialized pre-packaged sets containing all the materials needed to complete or replace an existing Deutsch connection. These are available for a number of the Deutsch connector lines. So, just what is the difference between a Deutsch repair pack and a Deutsch kit? It's pretty easy to tell them apart. Our Deutsch repair packs contain the connector body, a wedge lock, Deutsch pins or Deutsch sockets, and in some cases, cavity plugs. In this way, they contain all the parts needed to create or repair a Deutsch connection. Our Deutsch kits, on the other hand, contain only the connector body and a wedge lock. These are ideal for situations where you already have Deutsch pins or Deutsch sockets and only need the housing pieces. Take a glance at the images below to see the difference between the two options.

What are some benefits of DTM series connectors?
The DTM series of connectors offer several important benefits including high levels of resistance, field serviceability, and environmental protection. These are the factors that make it the ideal choice for use in marine environments as well as other harsh conditions. Think about it, when you are dealing with tough environmental conditions, you need a connector that can not only handle those conditions but thrive in them. The fact that they are field serviceable means that they can be used to cut down maintenance times. In fact, many people use them for this fact alone. Rather than using a permanent, unchanging connector, DTM series connectors allow you access to the connection point.
Where would I use DTM series connectors?
DTM series connectors can be used in any environment however, they are built to be used in the toughest environments out there. As environmentally sealed connectors, they have been developed to be used in industrial settings where inferior connectors simply cannot hold up. You can trust that these connectors will offer high-quality circuit protection in the harshest conditions for years to come. They are often used in marinas, repair shops, personal workshops, and industrial applications.
What protections do DTM series connectors offer?
DTM series connectors offer protections such as abrasion and impact resistance as well as moisture resistance. This is due to the fact that they create environmentally sealed connections. They are literally built with the highest levels of protection in mind. This is why you find Deutsch DTM series connectors in so many applications. They do their job and they do it well. Let’s take a quick look at some places you may use DTM connectors.
What connectors are available?
We also carry the DT, DTP, and DTHD series connectors. Each one is built around handling specific power applications and they all offer the same high levels of protection. To learn more about the DT, DTP, or DTHD series of connectors, simply click on the links below.
