ODU-MAC® spindle locking

A fast and secure connection and disconnection are essential for a plug connection. The ODU-MAC® spindle locking offers particularly ergonomic handling. It allows a connection with minimal effort by simply turning.

Manual mating

The ODU‐MAC® Blue‐Line gives you the option of manual mating. Various locking types are available: lever, transverse, and spindle or push‐pull locking. Thanks to the modular design, you can configure your rectangular connector entirely in accordance with your needs – including tailored cable assembly.

Automatic docking

Automatic docking is also an option with the ODU‐MAC® Blue‐Line. Four different frame sizes are available for this purpose. You also benefit from the large variety of modules and easy assembly.

Spindle locking

The proven ODU Spindle Locking is a quick‐action locking system that is designed for at least 10,000 mating cycles. It is simply installed as a module in the ODU‐MAC® Blue‐Line frame. This gives you a convenient and space‐saving twist lock that is unique on the market.

Tool‐free, clip‐in assembly

For applications that require a high degree flexibility! The ODU‐MAC® Blue‐Line allows tool‐free, clip‐in assembly and disassembly of the modules in the connector frame. Thanks to this uncomplicated assembly method, the connector is quickly ready for use.

Variety of modules

Choose from a variety of modules and configure your connector as required thanks to the modular design. You also benefit from the continuous expansion of our module range. Signals, power, high current, RF signals, compressed air, fluid, as well as data or fiber optics can be combined in one interface.

Data transmission

The universal, shielded data module of the ODU‐MAC® Blue‐Line offers different transmission variants: USB® 3.2 Gen 1x21, HDMI®¹ 2.1, DisplayPort®¹ 2.0, CAT 5 or CAT 6A. Reliable transmissions at high data rates is guaranteed for at least 10,000 mating cycles.

1) The contact arrangement of an ODU data transmission connector differs from a standard data transmission connector due to the robust ODU specific design. However, the ODU design meets the electrical specifications that are derived from the respective standard data transmission protocol.
