The Deutsch HD10 Series is an environmentally sealed, thermoplastic cylindrical connector series and offers arrangements from 3 to 9 cavities. All HD10 connectors are available either in-line or flanged and accept size 12 or 16 contacts, or a combination of size 16 and size 4 contacts. The HD10 Series is heavily used for diagnostic connectors, eliminates problems associated with assembly and maintenance time, and is designed for long service life.
DEUTSCH electrical connectors will stand up to the harsh environmental challenges that are common to industrial markets that require advanced performance. Proper parts, procedures, and tooling must be used.
Operating at temperatures from -55° C to +125° C continuous at rated current.
No electrical or mechanical defects after 100 cycles of engagement and disengagement.
No unlocking or unmating and exhibits no mechanical or physical damage after sinusoidal vibration levels of 20 G’s at 10 to 2000 Hz in each of the three mutually perpendicular planes. No electrical discontinuities longer than 1 microsecond.
No unlocking, unmating, or other unsatisfactory result during or after 50 G’s in each of three mutually perpendicular planes. No electrical discontinuities longer than 1 microsecond. MIL-STD 202, Method 213, Condition “C”.
Connectors show no damage when exposed to most fluids used in industrial applications.
1000 megohms minimum at 25° C.
Properly wired and mated connections will withstand immersion under three feet of water without loss of electronic qualities or leakage.
Dielectric Withstanding Voltage
Current leakage less than 2 milliamps at 1500 VAC.
No cracking, chipping or leaking after 20 test cycles from -55° C to +125° C.
Deutsch HD10 Series Installation Instructions:
- Grasp the contact-wire assembly between the thumb and forefinger on the wire approximately one inch behind the contact crimp barrel.
- Hold the connector with the rear grommet facing you.
- Push the contact straight into the connector grommet until a positive stop is felt. The retaining fingers in the connector will snap behind the shoulder of the contact and lock it in place. A slight tug will confirm that it is properly sealed.
- With rear insert toward you, snap the appropriate size plastic tool over the wire of the contact to be removed.
- Slide the tool along the wire into the insert cavity until it engages the contact and resistance is felt. The contact retaining clip will be in the unlocked position.
- Pull the contact-wire assembly out of the connector.
