ODU SPRINGTAC® Flatsocket

Flatsockets with springwire technology

Stable contact resistance
Springwire technology
Cable assembly included
Up to 50,000 mating cycles

The ODU SPRINGTAC® Flatsocket with springwire technology is ideal for sensitive measurement required for test and measurement applications. Even during tests with high current loads, the socket ensures reliable results – with stable resistance values even during a high number of test cycles. Due to the compact design you can use the flatsocket for any common grid size.

  • Suitable for a high number of test cycles
  • Versions for 2 and 4‐wire measurements (Kelvin measurements)
  • Ideal for flexible test adapters and replacement inserts
  • High current‐carrying capacity
ODU quick-change head (QCH) technology

Instead of a conventional cable connection, the flatsocket uses a contact pin for connection. This can be mated to an ODU SPRINGTAC® or ODU LAMTAC® contact socket, which in turn is installed in a connector that has been preassembled in accordance with your requirements. The ODU SPRINGTAC® Flatsocket with quick‐change head connection is then integrated into an interchange part: You can replace the test adapter quickly and easily as required – with no additional assembly work.

Low, stable contact resistance

Thanks to stable contact resistance values and a high number of contact points, the connector system always ensures reliable measurement results. The contacts are also extremely durable and robust – for many years of use with your test components.

Specially developed for test engineering

ODU SPRINGTAC® Flatsockets guarantee reliable performance at high volumes with high test currents for applications in automotive electronics and instrumentation.

ODU SPRINGTAC® Flatsocket – applications

The ODU SPRINGTAC® Flatsockets were specially developed for test and measurement technology, as they can reliably transmit even high test currents.

ODU Fiber Optic – for reliable optical connections

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

Maximum reliability, precisely where it is needed

ODU SPRINGTAC® Flatsockets are the perfect, long‐lasting counterparts to traditional flat plug‐in contacts, especially for all manner of tasks in test and measurement technology. Their low, stable resistance values make them ideal for sensitive measurement tasks, as well as for tests in which high current‐carrying capacities are required.
