Once again, ODU Connectors will be exhibiting at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Expo at the Farnborough Exhibition Centre 5th-7th February and will be introducing several new products.

Sealing the deal
Increasingly, this is not just about preventing water and dirt ingress, but about hermetic sealing – such as in critical purity situations, as when a vacuum must be created within a closed-off room. The ODU MINI-SNAP® series now offers glass potting, meeting not only the high demands on interfaces for ultra-high vacuum conditions – it also enables high-performance data transmission, with up to 14.4 Gbit/s.

High-voltage
ODU MEDI-SNAP® also has a new high-voltage connector, with a special pin layout design and new retarded contacts in tiny spaces of around 20 mm – in addition to reliable transmission of up to 1,000 V (AC), compliant with IEC 60664‑1.

The new IEC 60601-1 medical standard
It demands the highest contact security of medical devices and component parts to protect both patients and operators from electric shock. Thanks to the integration of a dual protective measure, ODU MEDI-SNAP® solutions already comply with this new top security standard.

Newcomers to the ODU-MAC® rectangular family
The new ODU-MAC® RAPID can cut assembly and service time in half thanks to a novel half-shell principle, with high contact density, coding, and spindle locking.

The ODU-MAC® Blue-Line performance class has a new module which achieves the highest packing density available on the market in a width of merely 14.4 mm.

High-performance contacts
The ODU-LAMTAC® HTC has a new high-performance contact that excels through its maximum current-carrying capacity and temperature resistance of up to 200°C.

Also, the ODU DOCKING MATE self-finding contact system is setting new standards with a brand-new development for autonomous driving and automated production.

ODU – here to help
ODU have established themselves as true ‘problem-solving’ connector manufacturers, working closely with their OEM customers to develop both connectors and packaging, providing cost-effective solutions to the problems of modern-day electronics.

ODU UK

For more than 75 years, ODU has designed customized premium connectors ensuring reliable transmission of power, signals, data, and media in demanding applications in the growth markets of medical, military & security and energy, as well as in established sectors such as industrial electronics, test & measurement, and automotive.

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.
