ODU-MAC® Silver-Line

Connector for docking systems

Automatic docking
Robust hybrid interface
100,000 to 10 million mating cycles
Optionally available with cable assembly

ODU-MAC® Silver-Line ensures reliability and includes various transmission types. Seven docking frames in individually configurable lengths to choose from, which can be equipped with modules to respond to stringent customer requirements. Additional benefit includes minimal maintenance with our optional quick‐change head solution.

  • 7 docking frames – suitable for your application
  • High contact and failure safety
  • > 30 data transmission modules
  • Vibration resistance
  • Low contact resistance
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 custom 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.

ODU Fiber Optic – for reliable optical connections

Solutions for harsh environments and a high number of mating cycles, as well as for standard requirements.

ODU-MAC® Silver-Line quick change head

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.
