ODU AMC® High-Density Connectors

Advanced High-Density Connector Solutions

ODU AMC ® High-Density is an advanced miniature connector solution for military, medical and industrial applications requiring significant weight and space savings. In shell diameters as small as 7mm, the ODU AMC ® High-Density line offers a rugged, 20-meter submersible, salt spray-resistant, high performance data transmission capable, high reliability break-away connector solution. Connectors can be easily overmolded and shells are keyed and color-coded to ensure easy and reliable handling.

High-Density connectors provide the highest possible number of contacts in the most compact space. They offer new possibilities and solutions while simultaneously challenging the manufacturer. At all time the connectors’ reliability and electrical and mechanical robustness must remain intact despite its compact size.
