Reliable contact technology always results from the right combination of different contact properties: contact resistance, contact force, contact security, mating cycles, plus mating and demating forces. To create durable connectors, these properties must be adjusted to each individual application and designed to perfectly fit the respective specifications. ODU’s diverse contact portfolio offers solutions for the most varied requirements – and thus the perfect connector technology for every need. It covers extremely durable springwire contacts, high-performance lamella contacts, universal turned and slotted contacts, as well as economically stamped contact solutions for use in large serial production. Termination technology also plays an important role, determining to a major extent the quality of the connection and its durability.
You, too, can benefit from ODU’s 80 years of experience and its impressive development and production expertise. Just contact our experts:
The specialty of this flat socket lies in the two contact halves, which are insulated from each other. The ODU SPRINGTAC® flat socket is therefore suitable for 4-wire measurement (Kelvin measurement), a standard measuring method for precise measuring of low electrical resistance. With over 50,000 mating cycles, it is ideal for use in measuring applications.
With the ODU QCH quick-change head (connector saver) principle, the socket has a contact pin termination instead of a conventional cable termination. The sockets are integrated in an insulator (interchangeable part) which can be front-mounted to the connector. This way, the test adapter can be exchanged quickly and easily without any further assembly.
ODU springwire contacts are used in a special high-performance charging connector at submarine mooring points, where the tough environmental conditions place high demands on the connection. ODU SPRINGTAC® contacts are particularly well suited for the task, thanks to their extreme reliability and durability.
Our ODU SPRINGTAC® offers top performance for welding current transmission in a tool-changing system. An intelligent crimp termination system ensures maximum flexibility in the tiniest of installation spaces – as well as one million mating cycles.
The reliable transmission of high performance under climate changing conditions demands high requirements to the contact system and connection technology. ODU LAMTAC® combines these in this docking solution in an extraordinary way. Benefits for the customer are low coupling forces and a temperature stable termination technology.
ODU lamella contacts form an interface between the inverter and the electric power system, of the snow groomer’s engine. For this customer-specific solution, the high-current carrying ODU LAMTAC® contacts were integrated into the smallest of construction spaces.
Even a novel electric surfboard had a requirement for ODU lamella technology. The ODU LAMTAC® contacts serve as an interface between the power supply, speed regulator and drive motor.
The universal properties of the ODU TURNTAC® typically make it the number one choice for connectors in automation or other industrial applications. Even the smallest of dimensions allow for high contact density. The sophisticated contact technology combined with our surface engineering enable reliable contacting even in the most challenging operating conditions.
The angled ODU pin contact contacts an ODU TURNTAC® socket and thus connects the modules of battery storage systems. The ODU product, which we manufacture including cable assembly, guarantees easy installation. A special protection against unintentional disconnection ensures perfect connections.
Our ODU STAMPTAC® standard contacts for automated processing in the high-volume serial production of charging plugs (IEC) are a cost-efficient alternative for high volumes. Thanks to the integration of an overmolded sealing element, customers have the additional benefit of shortening the process chain while still achieving IP 67.
These high-performance stamped contacts for an automation technology assembly do not just require precise manufacturing ‒ they also demand a great deal of experience and knowhow in matters of design and contacting. Optimal functioning, however, can only occur through perfect surfaces. Our ODU STAMPTAC® technology therefore relies on our ODU surface technology. The selective gold-plating we apply is resource-friendly and ensures reliable connecting.
