ODU SPRINGTAC®

Contacts with springwire technology

Maximum number of contact points
Very high contact safety
Cable assembly included
Up to 1 million mating cycles

The ODU SPRINGTAC® contact system ensures maximum contact safety for all contact diameters. Due to the parallel arrangement of the springwires, ODU SPRINGTAC® enables particularly stable and reliable transmissions. The large number of springs also makes your connection extremely secure and subject to virtually no wear, which in turn reduces your maintenance requirements to a minimum.

  • Low mating and demating forces
  • High vibration and shock resistance
  • Low contact resistance
  • High current‐carrying capacity
  • Up to 1 million mating cycles
Robust and reliable contacts

In medical technology, reliability and failure protection are literally vital. The ODU SPRINGTAC® contact system meets these requirements. Due to its robust and compact contact design, the system responds to the highest demands in medical technology – for connections that are safe and durable. This system can thus be reliably used for various applications from MRI systems to operating room equipment.

Contact safety through springwire technology

The contact system is robust and reliable due to the large number of individual contact elements. In addition, the independently mounted and parallel springwires ensure high vibration resistance and low contact resistance. This guarantees reliable transmission even with low contact forces. Therefore ODU SPRINGTAC® is mainly used in sensitive areas, such as medical or measurement technology.

Peak performance with up to one million mating cycles

The ODU SPRINGTAC® contact system offers top performance for power transmission. Regardless of the application area, these contacts ensure efficient transmission. An intelligent crimp connector system also allows flexibility in even the smallest installation space – and with up to one million mating cycles.

Reliable connections with the smallest contact diameters

Even with the smallest possible diameters of 0.76 mm, the contacts still have a large number of contact points thanks to 15 individual springwires. This large number of springwires arranged in parallel also ensures low contact resistance and constant safety.

Gold-plating

Gold is among the most corrosion resistant precious metals that are commonly used as contact coatings. It does not corrode even when exposed to aggressive environmental influences (e. g., dirt, weather, chemicals, etc.) for a prolonged period. This means that its contact properties do not degrade over time.

ODU SPRINGTAC® – applications

ODU SPRINGTAC® is the ideal solution for a wide range of industrial and medical applications, as well as test and measurement technology – reliable and durable.
