Maximum flexibility. Robust

The ODU MEDI-SNAP® break-away connector was developed for connections that need to be mated or unmated in seconds. The break-away function guarantees immediate disconnection whenever required. Especially in medical technology, this can be a matter of life and death in emergencies.
The break-away connector withstands up to 5,000 connection cycles. It is available in a large number of standardized solutions, which you can configure individually if necessary. Choose between the low-cost standard molding, the space-saving angled version, or the straight, field-assembly variant. For extremely demanding fields such as medical technology, ODU also offers a silicone-encased system solution. The break-away connector is also ideal for power applications in industry as well as in digital measurement and testing technology.
ODU supplies flexible complete systems consisting of break-away connectors, cables with custom assembly, and optional labeling. You benefit from our system approach featuring ODU from start to finish.
