The different locking types compared


The ODU MEDI‐SNAP® with push‐pull locking lets you establish a connection in less than a second. After mating, the automatic locking mechanism reliably prevents unwanted release – even if the cable is under tension. The connection can only be released by deliberately pulling back the outer sleeve.

  • Quick mating without unintentional release
  • Vibration‐resistant locking
  • Unlocking is only possible by deliberately pushing back the outer sleeve


The ODU MEDI‐SNAP® Break‐Away Connector was developed for connections that need to be mated or unmated in seconds. The break‐away function ensures immediate disconnection if required.

  • Emergency unlocking in seconds
  • Reliable data transmission
  • Maximum operating reliability
