    ELECTRICAL CONTACTS - FOR RELIABLE CONNECTOR SOLUTIONS

    The contact makes the difference.

    Reliable contact technology always results from the right combination of different contact properties: contact resistance, contact force, contact security, mating cycles, plus mating and demating forces. To create durable connectors, these properties must be adjusted to each individual application and designed to perfectly fit the respective specifications. ODU’s diverse contact portfolio offers solutions for the most varied requirements – and thus the perfect connector technology for every need. It covers extremely durable springwire contacts, high-performance lamella contacts, universal turned and slotted contacts, as well as economically stamped contact solutions for use in large serial production. Termination technology also plays an important role, determining to a major extent the quality of the connection and its durability.

    You, too, can benefit from ODU’s 80 years of experience and its impressive development and production expertise. Just contact our experts:

    Competences in contact technology

    ELECTRICAL CONTACTS FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF SPECIFICATIONS

    ODU SPRINGTAC®

    Submarine charging connector

    ODU springwire contacts are used in a special high-performance charging connector at submarine mooring points, where the tough environmental conditions place high demands on the connection. ODU SPRINGTAC® contacts are particularly well suited for the task, thanks to their extreme reliability and durability.

    Contacts for welding current transmission

    Our ODU SPRINGTAC® offers top performance for welding current transmission in a tool-changing system. An intelligent crimp termination system ensures maximum flexibility in the tiniest of installation spaces – as well as one million mating cycles. 

    ODU LAMTAC®

    Snow groomer engine

    ODU lamella contacts form an interface between the inverter and the electric power system, of the snow groomer’s engine. For this customer-specific solution, the high-current carrying ODU LAMTAC® contacts were integrated into the smallest of construction spaces.

    Electric Surfboard

    Even a novel electric surfboard had a requirement for ODU lamella technology. The ODU LAMTAC® contacts serve as an interface between the power supply, speed regulator and drive motor. 

    ODU TURNTAC®

    Contacts for connectors

    The universal properties of the ODU TURNTAC® typically make it the number one choice for connectors in automation or other industrial applications. Even the smallest of dimensions allow for high contact density. The sophisticated contact technology combined with our surface engineering enable reliable contacting even in the most challenging operating conditions. 

    Battery storage system

    The angled ODU pin contact connects a ODU TURNTAC® socket, which connects the module block with a battery storage system. The ODU product, which we manufacture right down to the cable assembly, guarantees easy installation. A special protection against unintentional mating creates perfect connections. 

    ODU STAMPTAC®

    Charging connector for electric vehicles

    Our ODU STAMPTAC® standard contacts for automated processing in the high-volume serial production of charging plugs (IEC) are a cost-efficient alternative for high volumes. Thanks to the integration of an overmolded sealing element, customers have the additional benefit of shortening the process chain while still achieving IP 67.

    Contact with push-in terminal

    These high-performance stamped contacts for an automation technology assembly do not just require precise manufacturing ‒ they also demand a great deal of experience and knowhow in matters of design and contacting. Optimal functioning, however, can only occur through perfect surfaces. Our ODU STAMPTAC® technology therefore relies on our ODU surface technology. The selective gold-plating we apply is resource-friendly and ensures reliable connecting.

    RELIABLE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS - FOR 80 YEARS

    Whether a connector provides continuous, error-free functioning or not, ultimately depends on the electrical contact being used. Otto Dunkel (ODU founder) solved classic connection problems 80 years ago, with a simple yet ingenious idea – the springwire contact. Countless electrical contacts are still based on this very idea today.

    Making a connection via multiple contact surfaces, is still the best solution for providing completely reliable and extraordinarily durable connections. The drive to achieve this, together with decades of experience, is what continuously pushes ODU to develop new and innovative connector solutions – constantly maintaining the highest attainable standards.
