HG-12 - Deutsch DT, 16 AWG TXL

DeutschSKU: HG-12-4848



Deutsch DT Series


Deutsch DT connectors we have come to respect so much with field proven quality. A favorite choice for racers and car builders due to their sealed and durable reliability. Ideal for engine compartments, chassis, harsh environments where dust, dirt, humidity, salt-spray and off-road use are major concerns. Able to withstand high-pressure, high-temperature washdown. 

The DT series (our HG Series) is the medium sized connector series of the three DT styles being ideal for most automotive applications under 13 amps.  This connector system is available in 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 12 circuit configurations with integral locking latches and hermetic, silicone seals at both connector ends and at the internal mating point.

Wired for DC only applications up to 50 volts with TXL, (extra thin wall) 16AWG, cross linked automotive grade wire offering all the protection of high-grade automotive wire but at a fraction of the weight. Insulation has smooth surface finish, resistant to gasoline, oil, grease, coolant, most acids and solvents. Wire is multicolored for easy installation.
