RTSM09 (Deutsch Connector RSM09) Blind Mate Receptacle Subminiature Connector
RTSM09 (Deutsch Connector RSM09) is push-pull quick connect and quick disconnect blind mate subminiature receptacle connector designed for easier handling and quick couplings. Push-pull coupling allows connectors to be closely mounted. See other blind mate connector RTS09 (deutsch connector ds09), RTS Crimp Series (deutsch ds series) and RTS Solder Series (deutsch dm series).

Contacts in the RTSM subminiature connectors (Deutsch Connectors RSM) are spaced .080" apart. This means up to three times the number of contacts in a given area compared to miniature connectors of the MIL-C-26482 or MIL-C-26500 types. See RTSM Series Contacts and RTSM Series Inserts.

RTSM ( Deutsch connectors RSM ) subminiature (sub-miniature) connectors fully environmental and meets or exceeds all of the performance requirements of MIL-C-81511. RTSM connectors are available in square flange, single hole mounting types in both resilient and hermetic receptacles. Push pull plugs (with or without lanyard release) ideal for high performance low weight applications. Other RTSM subminiature connectors RTSM00 RTSM04 RTSM07 .
