Mouser Electronics has announced a global distribution agreement with ODU, a leading international supplier of connection systems based in Germany. ODU’s product line includes its Mini-snap, Medi-snap and Mini-med series of connectors.

The Mini-snap K and L series are push-pull circular connectors keyed by pin and groove. Both offer durability over 5000+ mating cycles and are available in a wide variety of sizes, termination types and contact inserts to enable flexible configurations. The K series is rated IP68 mated or unmated while the L series is rated up to IP68 unmated and IP50 mated. The self-securing connectors are ideal for sensor devices, data collection and transfer systems, high-speed cameras, audio and video applications, LED lighting, medical and other demanding applications.

Medi-snap push-pull locking connectors combine distinctive coding options over 2000 mating cycles. Their plastic housing makes them up to 75 per cent lighter than comparable metal connectors. The space-saving design maximises installation efficiency, and high chemical resistance and sterilisability ensures usability under the harshest conditions. They are suitable for medical technology, industrial electronics, and digital test and measurement technology.

The Mini-med series is a compact and cost-efficient pre-assembled plastic connector solution with break-away function designed for medical, industrial, and test and measurement applications. They offer two to six gold-plated contacts with durability up to 1000 mating cycles. They provide IP67-rated protection when mated and are ideal for light, space-saving and watertight cable assembly requirements.

Mouser Electronics Senior Vice-President of Products Jeff Newell says: “ODU produces the high-quality connectors that design engineers demand. Through this partnership, Mouser brings ODU’s reliable connection systems to an even broader range of customers worldwide.”

ODU-USA President and CEO Thomas Mittermeier says: “We are proud to announce this agreement with Mouser Electronics, a company renowned for its worldwide distribution and support system. By partnering with Mouser, we can capitalise on their customer service and logistics expertise to expand our customer base around the world.”
