TE Connectivity Enhances Heavy Equipment Reliability with Next Generation Snap-Cap Electrical Connectors

Wire-seal covers increase productivity of environmentally protected connections

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Aug. 28, 2019 – High vibration, extreme temperatures, moisture, dust, dirt and debris exposure can wreak havoc on electrical harnesses and heavy machinery in harsh agricultural, mining, and construction conditions.

In its quest to enhance reliability in harsh environments and extend the trust and dependability of complex vehicle electrical systems, TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, helping to solve this problem with its next generation 2-pin and 3-pin connector series innovation: the rear latching snap-cap DEUTSCH DT connector with wire seal covers.

“For decades DEUTSCH has offered field-proven, reliable, harsh environment sealed connector systems to industrial equipment and commercial transportation markets,” said Eric Laurer, global senior manager of product management for TE’s Industrial & Commercial Transportation business. “Reliable DT snap cap products are fully interface compatible with existing DT parts in service and are perfect for rugged connections to a wide variety of solenoid, actuator, sensor, and other device applications; helping customers meet safety, productivity, efficiency, and sustainability objectives in an increasingly interconnected world.”

An extension of its existing DEUTSCH DT 2/3 Connector Series, the new snap-cap DT Connector provides improved seal performance, interface compatibility with predecessor parts, and a secure seal that is fully serviceable should replacement be needed. It is ideal for inline wire-to-wire, wire-to-device, and wire-to-board connectivity. 

The snap-in-place rear caps provide wire seal protection in standard and shrink tube adapted configurations for historical DT connector requirements as well as IP67 and IP68 ratings, offering a seamless design transition from legacy solutions as well as for new applications.
