ODU, a worldwide leader in designing and manufacturing high performance connectors, is announcing its advanced ODU-MAC® modular connector solutions available in a wide range of housings to the US market.

The ODU-MAC® is an advanced modular connector solution that offers a wide variety of connection options for applications that require connectors with high reliability, in a very limited amount of space. This has a distinct advantage when trying to manage many different cable connections into a single access point.

The different connection options available in the ODU-MAC® include: signal, high current, high voltage, coax, multi-conductor shielded, pneumatic (Air & Fluid) and fiber optic.

One of the unique features of the ODU-MAC® is that the modular insulation bodies used can be adapted to many different enclosure styles. ODU-MAC® has several different framing options for automated docking solutions, as well as a variety of housing options for manually mating connections, to cover a very wide breadth of application requirements.

The standard ODU-MAC® housing isavailable in Lever-Lock and (ODU unique) Spindle-Locking Styles.

The M50 Exit (XXL) Housingallows for larger cable bundles to be fed through. This is important for the high-power connections in the ODU-MAC®, since they can accommodate up to four 0 AWG (50mm2) cables in a single connector set .The housing allows for cables with larger bend radius to be used and for additional cable bundles or circuitry to be managed inside of the housing. The housing is also compatible with all of our standard housing options and it is available in lever-lock and spindle-locking.
