High degree of vertical integration under one roof

Our custom system solutions include planning, development and documentation. We don’t outsource our product testing – instead, we subject our products to comprehensive durability and reliability inspections at our in-house laboratory, the Technology Test Center. This saves you time and money and guarantees superlative quality

Every inspection includes complete and seamless documentation for all materials, components, and certifications. This enables you to precisely control and trace individual components.

Silicone-overmolded system solutions

We offer robust complete solutions for optimal haptics, hygiene, and durability. Autoclavable and tested in accordance with DIN EN ISO 10993-5.

Custom made for you

Every new product must permanently deliver high performance and ensure the highest dimension of safety. With outstanding contact resistance over more than 100,000 mating cycles, we ensure the reliable transmission of signals, power, high current, high voltage, RF signals (coax),  medical gases and liquids, as well as data and fiber‐optic signals.

  • Optionally 100% non‐magnetic or as disposable versions
  • Splash‐proof
  • Ergonomic and intuitive locking system
  • Implementation of MOPP & MOOP
  • Manufacture of complete units
  • Cable assembly and silicone‐overmolded system solutions

Efficient. Robust. Reliable.

Our connectors, cables, and housings are characterized by extreme temperature and chemical resistance – and guarantee reliable tightness, including in compliance with high protection classes.

  • Sterilizable and disinfectable

  • Autoclavable at up to 134°C and 3 bar

  • Easy cleaning of all surfaces

  • Vibration resistant

  • Use of biocompatible materials

  • Antimicrobial versions with plastic connectors available

Customer testimonials

Many well‐known customers put their trust in high‐performance connector solutions from ODU: Whether for clinics, medical, and dental practices or home care, we develop custom solutions of the highest quality.
