HARRISBURG, Pa., 4 May 2015. TE Connectivity in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing the AS81714 Series II DEUTSCH CTJ connector modules that are customizable for military and commercial aerospace applications.

The DEUTSCH CTJ series modules are made up of a system of wires and components that are interconnected to one another by a standard Mil AS39029 socket contact. The military qualification allows them to be used in either market, giving them the ability to turn around a change in design.

The DEUTSCH CTJ series modules have a 360 degree dielectric contact retention designed single pin power electronics bus bar feature that provides easy "pin and socket" mating, making it extremely durable.

It's designed with standard SAE AS39029/22 socket contacts, delivering increased durability during handling. The modules accommodate common busings of 6 to 20 contacts in a small area. Internal bus bars are configured to allow connections of various combinations of wires providing environmental resistance and vibration dampening.

Its modules can be mounted in rails, into chassis, or onto circuit boards. The termination system has environmentally sealed inserts that will withstand hydraulic fluid immersion, eliminating foreign object damage (FOD) issues.

Many offerings within the DEUTSCH CTJ line are available, including modules, junctions, splices, connectors and rail assemblies. TE is the only qualified manufacturer that provides AS39029 contacts with assemblies.
