March 27, 2020
The company will now offer ODU’s entire connector solution portfolio in the U.S., Canada and Mexico

Newark announced a new supplier franchise with ODU-USA, offering ODU’s entire connector solution portfolio, including ODU MINI-SNAP, ODU MEDI-SNAP and ODU MINI-MED to Newark customers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

ODU MINI-SNAP F Series, L Series and K Series: featuring robust metal housing for increased durability and a wide range of sizes. ODU MINI-SNAP is a self-securing circular connection for a multitude of application areas including transferring power, signals, data or even media. The push-pull principle is meant to ensure that the connection never releases until you want it to: once mated, the ODU MINI-SNAP locks itself into the receptacle and can no longer be separated by just pulling on the cable. The plug can easily be de-mated from the receptacle when the outer sleeve is pulled back.

ODU MEDI-SNAP is a plastic autoclavable circular connector which guarantees more than 2,000 mating cycles. The efficient plastic connector is available both with user-friendly push-pull locking and the break-away function, which comes as a premolded plug and play solution. The ODU MEDI-SNAP is suitable for use in medical technology, industrial electronics and digital measurement and testing applications.

ODU MINI-MED is an overmolded lightweight plastic connector. This assembled plastic connection is made for when a light, space-saving and watertight cable assembly is required. The ODU MINI-MED can mated and has a break-away function to enable the quick disconnection of the plug and in-line receptacle or receptacle. This solution is designed to deliver safe use in fields with hygiene requirements, such as medical technology. The compact ODU MINI-MED connection can also be used in industrial electronics or measuring and testing.

Newark features ODU in its 2020 line card, a list of more than 600 globally recognized manufacturers and more than 50 product categories available through Newark.
