Deutsch Connector Contacts
Deutsch manufactures two product styles of contacts, stamped and formed and solid. Within each style of Deutsch connector contacts, is a separate and distinct manufacturing process that allows the widest application with any Deutsch Industrial connector series.
Deutsch connector contacts are stamped and formed contacts, designed for use where wire termination costs are of primary concern without sacrificing reliability of electrical circuits. The stamped and formed contact series is made on a precision stamping machine using flat strip stock, then a durable and corrosion proof nickel plating is applied. Gold is an optional finish. All Deutsch Industrial terminals protect the split socket tines with a closed entry stainless steel sleeve or sleeveless design. The stamped and formed contact style is sold on reels.
The Deutsch solid contact series is designed for use for larger wire size and heavy duty applications. This style of contact is manufactured using a cold heading process and solid copper alloy wire. The resulting contact is a closed entry design. The standard finish is nickel, with gold plating an option. All Deutsch Industrial terminals protect the split socket tines with a closed entry stainless steel sleeve. The solid style of contact is sold in bulk.
Both contact styles terminate to wire using crimp type technology. The only variations in Deutsch’s common contact systems are those dictated by wire gauge and contact style.
