ODU high-speed connector solutions for harsh environment military applications
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.
