What are DTP Series Connectors?
DTP series connectors are one of the lines of Deutsch connectors that are designed to handle harsh conditions. The DTP series in particular are built for higher amperages than many of the other lines of connectors. These types of connectors are known as environmentally sealed connectors as they lock out moisture and other environmental hazards. DTP series connectors are known for rugged durability, ease of installation, and serviceability in the field. You will find these connectors in applications that call for a high degree of protection and amperage.

Where are these products implemented?
DTP series connectors are implemented when protection is required
DTP series connectors are implemented in applications where a high degree of protection is needed for 25 amp circuits. Ideal for new installations as well as replacement parts, DTP series connectors are designed with longevity and durability in mind making them perfect for usage in marine applications. If you have faded connectors or burnt connectors, then these may just be the parts you've been looking for. We carry every tool and accessory you would need to install them. Now that we have covered the basics, let us take a look at what gauges and applications they are built for.
What are some benefits of DTP series connectors?
When dealing with connectors one important aspect to consider is the benefits that they carry. The DTP series of connectors offer a range of benefits that include things such as environmental protection, high levels of resistance, and field serviceability. These are just some of the factors that make it the ideal option for use in harsh environments such as marine conditions. You need to use a connector that can handle the toughest environments out there. Not just handle them but thrive in them. Many manufacturers choose to use the DTP series connectors due to their field serviceability. It cuts down on maintenance costs and makes adjustments a much simpler task. Rather than a static, unchanging connector, the DTP series allows you the freedom to access the connection point at any time.
What wire gauges and power applications are they built for?
The DTP line has been developed to meet the need for higher amperage, multi-pin economical connectors. They are built to offer 25-amp continuous power and work with 14-10 AWG wires. Additionally, they are designed for use with size 12 contacts. We often receive the question; what is the “P” for? The “P” essentially stands for Power which implies their overall usage. With this level of variety and reliability, it is no wonder so many industries employ this type of connector in their everyday service.
What protections do DTP series connectors offer?
DTP series connectors offer high degree protection from such hazards as abrasion, impact, and moisture. This goes back to the fact that they are environmentally sealed connectors meaning that they are built with the highest levels of protection in mind. It is this level of protection that makes them so useful in so many applications and also explains why they are chosen by so many professionals in so many industries. Let us take a quick look at some places you may use DTP connectors.
Where would I use DTP series connectors?
DTP series connectors are used in just about every environment. Their environmental resistances give them an edge that other connectors just don’t have. Think about it, can just any old connector survive and function long term in an industrial setting that is subject to high levels of dust, dirt, and moisture? The answer is no. This is why these types of connectors were developed in the first place. You'll commonly find them in use at marinas, repairs shops, and even personal workshops.
What other connectors are available?
Aside from the DTP series of connectors, we also carry the DTM, DT, and DTHD series. Specific applications require specific solutions and that is why we offer such a wide range. You can trust that each one is built with the same high level of protection. To learn more about the DTM, DT, or DTHD series of connectors, simply click on the links below.
