Stamped & Formed Contacts
(F-Crimp)

Deutsch stamped & formed contacts are designed
for use where wire termination costs are of primary
concern without sacrificing reliability of electrical
circuits. The stamped & formed contacts are made on a
precision stamping machine using flat strip stock, then
a durable and corrosion proof nickel, or optional gold
plating is applied.

The stamped & formed style contacts terminate wire
from 10 AWG to 22 AWG (6.0 - 0.35mm²) and are
available in multiple sizes to accommodate a wide range
of wire insulation.

The specific contact is determined by the outside
diameter of wire insulation and conductor size.


Solid style contacts are sold in bulk

Solid Contacts

Deutsch solid contacts are designed for use with larger
wire size and heavy duty applications. Solid contacts are
manufactured using a cold heading process with solid
copper alloy wire and are available with either a nickel or
gold plating finish.

Solid contacts terminate wire from 6 AWG to 20 AWG
(13 - 0.5mm²) and are available in 5 sizes each of the pin
and socket. The applicable contact is determined by the
size of the conductor only.

Green Band Contacts

Size 16 solid contacts are available to suit 2 wire sizes.
Contacts with the green band marking accept the larger
wire size of 14 AWG (1.0 - 2.0mm²].


Stamped & formed contacts are available as
cut strips or in complete reels.

Contact Insertion

Step 1
Hold crimped contact
approximately 25mm behind
the contact barrel.
Step 2
Hold connector with rear
grommet toward the contact.
Push contact into connector grommet
until a click is felt. Gently pull back to
confirm contact is locked in place.
Step 3
Once all contacts are in place,
insert wedgelock.
The wedgelock will snap into
place securing the contacts.

 

Contact Removal

Step 1
With the rear insert toward you,
snap appropriate size removal
tool over the wire of contact to be
removed.
Step 2
Slide tool along the wire into the insert
cavity until it engages the contact and
resistance is felt.
Step 3
Pull contact wire assembly out
of connector.
