ODU expands ODU-MAC® Modular Connector range
ODU Connectors have announced a major expansion of their ODU-MAC modular connector range – the result of technology transfer from their pedigree in military connectors – now incorporated into this connector series, aimed at the industrial market.
Now available in three major variants, each providing the ultimate pick'n'mix combination of the most varied types of transfer within one connection. Whether power, signals, high-speed data, pneumatics, liquids or fibre-optics – all can be selected from the kit and integrated into an individual connector solution. The mating options are just as versatile, with infinite possibilities available for the widest range of applications in industrial or medical technology.
The all-rounder for automatic docking – offering six different docking frame options, each of which can be configured in customized lengths. A wide variety of transmission modules is available, including 30 different high-speed data-transfer options. The robust hybrid interface requires minimal maintenance, due to the high level of mechanical security and the optional quick-change head. This top-performing modular package is rounded off by its high packing density [down to 2.54mm pitch] and vibration resistance, achieving over 100,000 mating cycles, with some customers reporting more than one million mating cycles. ODU-MAC Silver-Line is ideal for blind and diagonal mating, with a wide variety of locking systems incorporating both visual and tactical feedback and with the docking frame also able to provide both strain relief and termination protection .
The option for manual mating – provides the widest variety of options for the most diverse industrial and medical technology applications, offering an effective, compact and attractive complete connection with functionality that is second to none. The confusion of too many connectors is now a thing of the past – thanks to the ODU-MAC White-Line that can be packaged to the specific needs of each and every application. This product line offers the same technical performance as the Silver-Line, but in a multiple choice of metal and non-magnetic plastic housings, together with several locking options, such as snap-in, spindle or lever.
The tool-free clip-mounted version – ideal for on-site assembly, offers efficient mounting and dismounting of the crimp contacts, even when already assembled. Clipping-in the modules is simple and reliable thanks to the safeguard of visual and mechanical coding. ODU’s time-tested spindle locking is available in a plastic housing and faulty clipping-in of modules is prevented through one mechanical and two optical coding functions
