Phoenix Contact Introduces Molded Deutsch and Superseal Cordsets
Phoenix Contact USA Posted 11/25/2014
Cordsets for mobile hydraulic applications reduce on-site installation costs
Middletown, Pa. – Phoenix Contact now offers Deutsch and Superseal connectors as pre-molded cordsets. These connectors are 100-percent factory-tested and ready for use in mobile hydraulic applications. While the Deutsch and Superseal connectors are well established as quality discrete-wired solutions, crimp technology and on-site installation often add to hidden labor costs.
The Deutsch connector is the female 2-position DT-06-2S and comes in the following variants: without LED to open end (rated 48 V DC at an operating current of 8 A); with LED to open end (24 V DC at 8 A); and with LED and suppressor diode to open end (24 V DC at 3 A).
The Superseal connector is available as male or female to open end, and male-to-female, all without LED. The Superseal cordsets are rated 24 V DC at 8 A operating current.
Commonly used for the discrete wiring of cable harnesses on mobile equipment, the cordsets measure 18 AWG (2 x 0.75 mm²) and are made of PUR black cable. Additionally, both the Deutsch and the Superseal feature IP65/IP67 protection and a temperature range of -20°C to 85°C.
Additional variants, such as double-ended, M12 connectors or other lengths, can be requested through Phoenix Contact’s Solution Center.
