ODU-MAC®

  • Electromechanical version
  • Modularity and flexibility
  • Up to 4,440 signal contacts

Description

ODU-MAC® Black-Line is the name of ODU's Mass Interconnect Solutions. ODU-MAC® Black-Line is available in both a mechanical and an electromechanical version.

Electromechanical version

The innovative electromechanical locking mechanism is as yet unique. Rather than being operated via a hand lever, the two sides of the system are connected simply by pushing a button (giving an ergonomic design). This means there is no need for a locking hand lever, which can represent an interfering contour in practice. What's more, the electromechanical system makes remote operation possible.

Mechanical version

The mechanical version of the ODU-MAC® Black-Line with hand lever matches the standard, tried-and-tested designs already on the market. The receiver and adapter sides are connected to one another via the hand lever and the engagement mechanism.

Frames and modules

A variety of ODU-MAC® Blue-Line modules can be integrated in two frame sizes (size 2 or size 4). There is space for a maximum of 12 ODU-MAC® Blue-Line frames in one receiver or adapter slot. So up to 4,440 signal contacts can be accommodated in the larger version. This is made possible by the high packing density of the modules and their compact design. ODU-MAC® Blue-Line modules boast a simple method of clip-in assembly into the frame without the need for tools. Furthermore, the quick-locking system ensures the ODU-MAC® frames and monoblocks are locked on the receiver side rapidly and reliably.

This Mass Interconnect Solution features an impressive floating supported adapter frame (ITA) including a demonstration system. Each of the 12 connectors that can be integrated is also fitted with guiding pins and bearings that allow for radial play of +/- 0.6 mm. The floating bearings prevent alignment errors, improve the connection process, and thus make handling easier. Alongside the innovative electromechanical engagement mechanism there are eight tensioning points, which stop the frame distorting. The quality also shines through in the high number of possible mating cycles.

We are a German manufacturer who can guarantee worldwide availability.

The electromechanical version of ODU-MAC® Black-Line and the quick-locking system on the receiver side have had patent applications submitted for them.
