Turck Australia announces the launch of a new range of overmoulded
connectors for the mobile equipment industry.
Designed to reduce installation time and increase reliability, the new Deutsch
DT series of overmoulded connectors ensures longevity in demanding environments
where performance can be impacted by shock, vibration, cold temperature,
moisture and oils. The Deutsch DT series is recommended for wiring harness
assemblies in vehicles, agricultural and construction equipment, or any
application requiring a cost-effective quick disconnect solution.
Widely used in the heavy equipment sector, TURCK’s two-wire, pin and
socket DT connectors are designed to address the environmental needs of this industry
and include features such as overmoulded design, TPE jacketing, IP67 rating, and
abrasion and oil resistance.
Senior Product Manager April Ankrum explains that TURCK has combined its
expertise in overmoulding connectors with its knowledge of designing jacketed
cables to improve upon an industry standard. The new Deutsch DT series is the
first of a new overmoulded Deutsch line that will be expanded in early 2015 to
improve low-cost and durable solutions for harsh applications.
TURCK’s Deutsch DT series connectors feature a fully encapsulated rugged
IP67 rated overmould. The cable performs well in low temperatures with a -40¡C
cold bend rating, and is also sunlight resistant and Oil Res II rated.
