The DEUTSCH 369 connector series from supplier TE Connectivity is now available at TTI, the world’s specialist distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical and discrete components. Designed to provide a high-reliability, lightweight, compact and cost-efficient interconnect solution in many applications, the TE DEUTSCH 369 Series is particularly suited to harsh environments including high vibration and moisture, as well as aerospace applications such as cabin systems (in-flight entertainment and power) in civil aircraft. Fully sealed for use in areas with high moisture levels and manufactured from high-performance composite materials, the interconnects conform to the smoke, toxicity and flammability requirements of FAR 25.

The TE Connectivity DEUTSCH 369 Series is designed for applications where fewer contacts are required and shielding is unnecessary.  Available in 3, 6 and 9 way configurations, these connectors offer fast and simple installation and maintenance of cabling and a range of individually colour-coded keying options.  Each half of the connector can be configured with either male or female contacts, which offers the advantage of doubling the possible keying combinations and protecting contacts on the powered side of the system. Aerospace standard AS39029 contacts can be extracted and reinserted from the rear of the connector with standard tooling, and in blind mating or low visibility conditions, the scoop-proof interface prevents damage to contacts. A button latching mechanism provides fast positive and audible locking, while a latch security feature helps prevent inadvertent un-mating.
