TE Connectivity Unveils DEUTSCH DTSK Single-Pole Connectors

 Rugged, high-capacity, sealed interconnects install and disconnect easily

KETTERING, Ohio – July 31, 2019 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, today introduced its single-pole DEUTSCH DTSK power connectors designed for rugged, sealed applications. These heavy-duty thermoplastic connectors accept size Ø8mm contacts that are rated up to 125 amps. TE’s DEUTSCH DTSK connectors are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the trucking, busing, agricultural, mining, construction and marine industries, as well as other industrial applications.

Designed with ease of use and simplicity in mind, TE’s DEUTSCH DTSK connectors feature latch-style mating and an integrated secondary lock. Individual wire seals with a rear protective cover help protect the connections from dirt, dust and water ingress, making the DTSK connectors an effective option for applications that require an environmentally sealed connector. DTSK connectors can be used inline or mounted as pass-through connectors with the addition of an optional flange.

“There aren’t many single-pole, sealed power connectors available in the industrial and commercial vehicle and equipment market that can be used for inline or pass-through applications,” said Jean-Paul Gervais, product manager for TE’s Industrial & Commercial Transportation business. “Our DEUTSCH DTSK connectors offer simplicity in design for ease of use and safe assembly, installation and field repair, while remaining a rugged solution that stands up to the harsh conditions faced in the truck, construction, agriculture and similar industries.”

TE’s DEUTSCH DTSK single-pole connectors were designed to connect power in a variety of applications, specifically offering the ease of connecting and disconnecting in safer and more accessible areas than at the power source itself. DEUTSCH DTSK connectors and the entire TE Industrial & Commercial Transportation product portfolio deliver reliable connectivity solutions for applications where failure is not an option.
