TE Connectivity expands robust connector portfolio to meet reliability needs of complex vehicles

DT-XT sealed connector system features innovative, high-performance seal technology for commercial vehicle applications operating in harsh environments

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – June 4, 2021 – Today’s complex vehicles include more connectors than ever, which brings a higher risk of failure as one compromised seal on a single connector can result in the failure of an entire system. To address the reliability needs of its customers operating commercial vehicle applications in harsh environments, TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has expanded its robust Industrial and Commercial Transportation (ICT) connector portfolio to include the DT-XT sealed connector system.

DT-XT sealed connector system features innovative, high-performance sealing technology. The advanced sealing materials and covalent bond offer increased flexibility resulting in improved tear resistance and seal positioning for the ICT market. Additionally, a rear sealing cover protects against water ingress due to enhanced cable management. The connectors have a proven design that works with the industry’s current standard tools and eliminates the need for costly redesigns. DT-XT connector is IP69K-rated and J2030 power-wash tested.

“Providing customers with products that are durable as well as dependable is our priority at TE,” said Ryan Wu, product manager at TE Connectivity. “DT-XT connectors are the latest addition to our DT Series within the DEUSTCH connector portfolio and offer customers a durable, rugged and reliable connector solution that also cuts costs and saves on assembly time.”

DT-XT sealed connector system also features secure mating and unmating as the connector housing has an integrated lock that provides secure mating and electrical connection in the vehicle. Finger grips on the locking mechanism provide a ribbed surface that makes it easier to connect, disconnect and release even when fingers are wet, dirty or oily. With the range of DT-XT crimp terminals, lower insertion and withdrawal forces are possible.

TE offers the DT-XT sealed connection system in a broad range of colors and an array of custom options, enhancing poka-yoke and removing the need for labeling of wires.
