In many industrial and medical applications, fast availability and flexible connector solutions are becoming increasingly important. ODU is expanding the plastic connector portfolio with additional versions of ODU MEDI-SNAP® with break-away function. With BREAK-AWAY function, one pull on the cable is enough to separate the connection. And naturally the plug can be connected again just as quickly. From now on, these are available in addition to classic MEDI-SNAP push-pull versions.
ODU MEDI-SNAP is light-weight connector with plastic housing. Endures chemicals excellently and is designed especially for medical applications. MEDI-SNAP has outer diameter of 14 mm and is available in 2-14 pole versions. Connectors housing materials are autoclavable and non-magnetic. They also have full protection against accidental contact. Protection class is IP 50 and IP 67. Inserts are also available for fluid and fiber connections. One MEDI-SNAP Push-pull connector has minimum life cycle of 2000 matings and the break-away connector withstands up to 5000 connection cycles.
In addition to an angled version, it also has straight collet that are quick and easy to install and assembly. Using a new flexible collet system, cable diameters from 1.5 mm – 9.0 mm can be realized. Available also are silicone overmolded cable series that have stick-slip effect, made of bio-compatible materials in compliance with DIN EN ISO 10993-5 and are autoclavable.
