HD10HD-10

The Deutsch HD10 Series was designed to provide a solution to todays interconnection problems found in the heavy duty industry. The HD10 is a thermoplastic cylindrical connector utilizing crimp type contacts that are quickly and easily inserted and removed. The HD10 Series eliminates problems associated with assembly and maintenance time and is designed for a long service life. For an up-grade in performance, specify the HD10 Series and down-grade your total installed costs.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

SHELL STYLES AND CONFIGURATIONS

Rugged thermoplastic shells are available in non-threaded and threaded (for rear hardware) configurations. Receptacles are tooled in inline or square flange mounting styles. Insert arrangements of 3, 5, 6 and 9 utilizing size 16 contacts that accept 18, 16 and 14 AWG wire meet most wire-break applications.

MATING CHARACTERISTICS

A tricam coupling is utilized in the HD10 design that permits quick mating and unmating. Keying silos are molded in the plug half that eliminates blind mating problems and provides protection for the socket contacts. Both the plug and receptacles are index keyed for visual alignment before coupling. To mate, simply rotate the plug body until it slips into the receptacle, rotate the coupling approximately one-quarter turn, until a "click" is heard, and thats it, simple and quick.

SEALED AGAINST MOISTURE AND CON TAMINANTS

Unlike other conventional cylindrical plastic multi-pin connectors, the Deutsch HD10 Series is a completely sealed unit. The rear grommmets of the plug and receptacle feature integrated silicone wire seals which automatically seal each wired contact as it is locked in place during installation. There are no extra components to be installed on the contact/wire assembly and no potting needed to achieve sealing. The HD10 connector family was designed to be an environmentally sealed connector assembly, not a redesign from an existing product line. All this means a faster, easier, trouble free assembly. An interfacial seal fabricated from tear resistant high temperature silicone is located in the plug. When mated, the contacts are protected from moisture, sand, dust lubricating oils, fuel, road salt, hydraulic fluid, grease, mud and other contaminations encountered in heavy duty operations.

CONTACT RETENTION SYSTEM DECREASES INSTALLATION COSTS AND INCREASES RELIABILITY

The HD10 Series uses crimp type, solid copper alloy contacts for damage-proof performance and the ability to carry continuous high operating current loads without overheating. The contacts are crimp terminated using automatic tooling for production and inexpensive readily available hand tools for field maintenance. Deutsch termination procedures recommend no soldering after properly crimped contacts are completed. After crimping, these contacts are easily installed by simply pushing the contact into place by hand. Contacts are positively secured by the use of "fingers" in the connector which lock behind the shoulder of the contact preventing accidental dislodging. Although securely locked in place, these contacts can by quickly and easily removed by the use of an inexpensive, non-conductive removal tool. The HD10 contact call-outs are the same used in all Deutsch HD, DRC and DT Series of connector products. When used together, this common system slashes inventory costs and reduces the chance of assembly and operator errors caused by the hundreds of different types of terminations and processes used within one harness assembly.

A GENERAL PURPOSE, ECONOMICAL CONNECTOR SELECTION

The Deutsch HD10 Series of interconnections brings to the heavy duty industry a general purpose, environmentally sealed connector that is easy to assembly and meets the demand of total support for advance electronic equipment technology today and in the future.
