ODU’s flagship product, the ODU-MAC with its well-established spindle-locking,   is now also available in sizes 2 to 4, all meeting tightness class IP65.

This robust metal outdoor connector with its ergonomic quick-release fastener therefore opens up new fields of application, as the ODU-MAC® can now be used in the smallest of spaces – but with a unique locking system that retains the highest degree of tightness.

This tight standard solution manages at least 30,000 locking cycles, which can then be further extended by replacing the spindle screw – easily and quickly done without dismantling the entire connector.

ODU’s unique spindle-locking offers a compact, ergonomic design with high precision – compared to standard products on the market, locking and release are extremely easy and quick.

ODU now offers four different locking solutions ex-stock, enabling a rapid response for all requirements. The highest degree of reliability, greatest flexibility and depth of innovation – find inspiration in our nearly unlimited range of housings at:

In 1937, Otto Dunkel built the first ionospheric transmitters, broadcasting messages into the atmosphere, to be reflected to another location. Early transmissions presented many challenges, particularly with the plug contacts of the broadcasting system. Looking out his window one day, Otto saw a man with a twig-broom sweeping up leaves – giving him the idea for an entirely new contact – the springwire.

A year later Otto patented his invention: Now known around the world as ODU SPRINGTAC, offering connector technology on the highest technical level. Multiple, individually-operating, springwires are incorporated into each contact [even the smallest 0.76mm dia contact has 15 springwires] – each springwire in contact with the pin, ensuring extremely high mating cycles and stable low contact resistance.


ODU-MAC
is a rectangular connector system offering almost limitless configurations. Reliable and compact, most ODU-MAC modules are based on ODU SPRINGTAC technology, ensuring high contact stability even under increased vibration.

Available in two formats  – in a DIN housing for manual operation and in an aluminium frame as an automatic docking version. The contacts can be varied by the customer – using a configurator, backed-up by ODU technical support engineers.

Whether in connector technology for the Finnish state railway, in the analysis unit of heart catheter systems, or in pick-and-place machines, the ODU-MAC ensures reliable safety – customers report no failures in the docking version of the ODU-MAC even after one million mating cycles.

So, what’s new?

ODU have introduced a new, high-density version of their highly successful miniature AMC push-pull connector. With dia­meters from under 10 up to 18.5mm and contact densities of up to 40 contacts, this connector offer functionality and premium quality in a compact size. At the same time, these featherweights guarantee a highly robust connec­tion, convenient handling, and long service life. ODU is developing customized versions of these connectors to meet specific customer require­ments, and also offers cable assembly and over-moulding.
