What are DTM Series Connectors?
Deutsch DTM series connectors are designed for use in harsh environments. Specifically, harsh environments where necessary signal circuits are crucial for functional performance. As environmentally sealed connectors, DTM series are built to withstand tough environmental conditions. The DTM series was designed to handle lower amperage needs. Each size 20 contact (24-20 AWG) can handle 7.5 amp continuous capacity. An easy way to think about this line of connectors is to remember that the "m" means "mini". So basically you get smaller connectors to handle lower amperage needs. To be clear, their smaller size does not take away from their durability. DTM series connectors are equally durable to the DT or DTP lines.
Some of the benefits of these connectors include; durability, field serviceability, and longevity. Deutsch DTM series connectors are designed with the harshest environments in mind. Remember, your electrical system is only as strong as your weakest connection. Selecting the correct Deutsch connector isn't always an easy task.
