ODU MEDI-SNAP overmoulded connector
Published: 9 March 2018 - Sarah Mead
The ODU MEDI-SNAP push-pull range is now complemented by an overmoulded break-away connector with plastic housing that can be securely mated for up to 2,000 cycles.
The new connector’s break-away function guarantees that the connection can be immediately released if necessary. For instance, in medical technology an emergency release of this kind is a must-have, particularly in life-threatening situations. In addition, this connector is able to meet applications in the industrial sector as well as with test and measurement equipment needing power transmission.
More varieties with higher performance
In the new size-2 version, the break-away connector becomes significantly more powerful: It’s now able to transmit higher currents and voltages of up to 16 A and 250 V. Thanks to its wider cross-section, it also offers sufficient space for up to 26 contacts.
The ODU MEDI-SNAP is 75 percent lighter than comparable metal connectors and is especially easy to install. The space-saving design reduces installation space needs and high chemical resistance and sterilizability ensures usability - even under the harshest environmental conditions.
New female receptacles have been introduced, so as to enable IP67 cable connections. This new connector series provides the ideal solution for a wide range of applications.
