ODU, A WORLD­WIDE LEADER in designing and man­u­fac­tur­ing high per­for­mance con­nec­tor so­lu­tions and ca­ble assem­blies, presents its high speed con­nec­tor so­lu­tions as part of the ODU AMC port­fo­lio to the global mar­ket. ODU AMC is an ad­vanced minia­ture con­nec­tor so­lu­tion se­ries de­signed for harsh en­vi­ron­ment ap­pli­ca­tions. It is used ex­ten­sively in sol­dier com­mu­ni­ca­tions and fu­ture sol­dier sys­tems that re­quire sig­nif­i­cant weight and space re­duc­tion such as tac­ti­cal ra­dios, por­ta­ble com­put­ers, nav­i­ga­tion and sur­veil­lance sys­tems, night vision, dig­i­tal scopes, UAVs and air­borne ve­hi­cles.

Rugged, wa­ter­tight and easy to clean, these light­weight, non-re­flec­tive con­nec­tor sys­tems have ex­cel­lent EMI shield­ing within a com­pact hous­ing. In­di­vid­ual con­tact con­fig­u­ra­tions are avail­able in one in­te­grated con­nec­tor so­lu­tion: sig­nal, low/high volt­age trans­mis­sion, coax/triax, com­pressed air in­serts.

AMC Con­nec­tor So­lu­tions

The ODU AMC se­ries in­clude four dif­fer­ent types of con­nec­tor so­lu­tions: ODU AMC High-Den­sity, ODU AMC Push-Pull, ODU AMC Break-Away and ODU AMC easyClean.

These ad­vanced high speed con­nec­tor so­lu­tions of­fer high per­for­mance data trans­mis­sion, high band­with trans­mis­sion, high re­li­a­bil­ity and easy han­dling. The prod­uct port­fo­lio of the ODU AMC High­Den­sity in­cludes USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and an HDMI op­tion. In ad­di­tion to the USB 2.0 ver­sion and Eth­er­net de­signs with trans­fer rates of 100 Mbit to 10 Gbit, ODU also of­fers a con­nec­tor that com­bines USB 2.0 and Eth- ernet trans­fer. The con­nec­tion sys­tems in the ODU AMC se­ries are smaller and lighter than the MIL hous­ings with RJ45 in­serts. They are ex­tremely ro­bust, ver­sa­tile and easy to han­dle.

The ODU AMC sys­tem so­lu­tions also in­clude pro­tec­tive caps that en­sure fast and trou­ble-free han­dling of the con­nec­tors, the over­all sys­tem, in­te­grated ca­ble assem­bly so­lu­tions and over-mold­ing. ODU also of­fers op­tions for “hot plug­ging” or hy­brid in­sert con­fig­u­ra­tions. ODU pro­vides the full suite of com­ple­men­tary prod­ucts and ser­vices in­clud­ing in­no­va­tive op­tions for ca­ble- assem­bly as well as re­cep­ta­cles with star flex ter­mi­na­tion, over-mold­ing and turnkey sys­tem so­lu­tions. The shells are keyed and colour-coded to en­sure re­li­able and sim­ple han­dling.

The main char­ac­ter­is­tics of this prod­uct se­ries are: 5,000 mat­ing cy­cles dura­bil­ity, Push-Pull or Break-Away func­tion for max­i­mum safety, wa­ter­tight pro­tec­tion IP 68 and IP 69, op­ti­mised colour cod­ing, highly re­li­able shield­ing prop­er­ties (360°), op­er­at­ing tem­per­a­ture range of -51° C (-60° F) to +125° C (+257° F), salt spray re­sis­tance, high-speed data trans­fer ca­pa­bil­ity, nu­mer- ous high den­sity sig­nal con­fig­u­ra­tions and tai­lored ver­sions for power (up to 15A) and data trans­fer (USB 3.0 with 5A power) in a very com­pact pack­age.

ODU high speed con­nec­tor so­lu­tions in­cludes a se­ries of Push-Pull cir­cu­lar con­nec­tors and mod­u­lar rec­tan­gu­lar con­nec­tors that have a large ap­pli­ca­bil­ity in in­dus­tries such as in­dus­trial, mea­sure­ment and test­ing and med­i­cal. ODU pro­vides the full suite of com­ple­men­tary prod­ucts and ser­vices in­clud­ing in­no­va­tive op­tions for ca­ble assem­bly, over­mold­ing and turnkey sys­tem so­lu­tions.

Con­nec­tions from ODU en­sure re­li­able trans­mis­sion of power, sig­nals, data and me­dia in nu­mer­ous de­mand­ing ap­pli­ca­tion ar­eas: in fu­ture-ori­ented growth mar­kets such as med­i­cal tech­nol­ogy, mil­i­tary and se­cu­rity tech­nol­ogy, and en­ergy, as well as in es­tab­lished sec­tors such as in­dus­trial elec­tron­ics, mea­sure­ment and test­ing, and au­to­mo­tive tech­nol­ogy.

ODU is one of the world’s lead­ing con­nec­tor sys­tems sup­pli­ers and em­ploys about 1,650 peo­ple around the world. Aside from the com­pany head­quar­ters at Mühldorf am Inn, the ODU Group has also an in­ter­na­tional pro­duc­tion and distri­bu­tion net­work in Europe, North Amer­ica and Asia. ODU com­bines all rel­e­vant ar­eas of com­pe­tence and key tech­nolo­gies re­lat­ing to de­sign and devel­op­ment, ma­chine tool and spe­cial ma­chine con­struc­tion, in­jec­tion, stamp­ing, turn­ing, sur­face tech­nol­ogy, assem­bly and ca­ble assem­bly.
