The ODU MEDI-SNAP push-pull range is now complemented by an overmoulded break-away connector with plastic housing that can be securely mated for up to 2,000 cycles.

The new connector’s break-away function guarantees that the connection can be immediately released if necessary. For instance, in medical technology an emergency release of this kind is a must-have, particularly in life-threatening situations. In addition, this connector is able to meet applications in the industrial sector as well as with test and measurement equipment needing power transmission.

More varieties with higher performance
In the new size-2 version, the break-away connector becomes significantly more powerful: It’s now able to transmit higher currents and voltages of up to 16 A and 250 V. Thanks to its wider cross-section, it also offers sufficient space for up to 26 contacts.

The ODU MEDI-SNAP® is 75 per cent lighter than comparable metal connectors and is especially easy to install. The space-saving design reduces installation space needs and high chemical resistance and sterilizability ensures usability – even under the harshest environmental conditions. New female receptacles have been introduced, so as to enable IP 67 cable connections. This new connector series provides the ideal solution for a wide range of applications.

Benefiting from ODU’s system approach – ease and efficiency combined, with connectors and cables as a complete solution
Customers can choose from a wide range of available connectors and cables and ODU can also supply the complete assembly. More than anything, this represents significant savings when it comes to customers’ valuable time – time they can then dedicate to other projects instead. ODU ensures quality from A to Z.

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.
