Automatic docking

High mating cycles during automatic docking! Among other things, the reliable contact technology and floating support for the frames ensure a particularly long service life for the docking unit. Once the slide‐in unit has been engaged far enough, the ODU‐MAC®’s guidance system takes care of the fine tuning.

Docking frame selection

Always the right solution: With the ODU‐MAC® Silver‐Line you can choose between different frames. Depending on your requirements, we can supply variants for small installation spaces, increased mechanical loads, or with floating supports, among other features. On request, we will be happy to offer you special solutions tailored to your needs.

Optional strain relief housing

The durable strain relief housing reliably protects the termination area from external influences. It can be combined with all ODU‐MAC® Docking Frames and is available with tailored strain‐relief, cable outlets, as well as grounding connections. If required, PCBs and other components can be secured inside the protected interior of the housing.

Highlights of the ODU-MAC® Silver-Line

Quick‐change head solution for minimum maintenance effort

The ODU‐MAC® Silver‐Line offers a quick‐change head solution that enables up to 10 million mating cycles. The front part of the connector frame is replaced, while the rear part including cable assembly remains unchanged. This process takes just seconds and ensures minimal maintenance times.

Robust P4+ frame with high tolerance compensation

The P4+ effortlessly convinces in extreme centering tasks and optimally compensates for misalignments with a radial play of +/- 4 mm. Compensation for angular misalignments is also ensured via centering with solid guiding pins and conical sockets. This durable and robust frame variant is mounted floating on both sides.
