The ODU Group has released the ODU AMC NP, a new high-performance quick-disconnect miniature connector designed for military and security applications.
With this ODU AMC NP launch, ODU extends its successful portfolio for soldier communications as well as its ability to assist military and defense customers with custom hybrid solutions and multiple value-added services, such as one-to-one engineering support, rapid prototyping and cable assembly integrated. ODU believes this will give significant competitive advantage to equipment manufacturers that want a highly reliable and readily available connectivity solution.
Tested to MIL-STD-810H and applicable technical requirements, this new metal, rugged connector aims to enhance a soldier’s ability to communicate in the battlefield.
It also contains improved power contacts with USB 2.0 capabilities along with power-efficient contacts, minimum 2,000 mating cycles and is waterproof up to IP68 with 20m waterproof versions available. There are also options for solder, crimp, or PCB terminations, easy handling, a robust break-away design and cable assembly integrated solutions.
This new connector is ideal for tactical soldier batteries, power distribution units, conformable wearable batteries, and C4ISR peripherals for the transmission of USB 2.0 signals and power. It is also compatible with open architecture standards such as NATO STANAG 4695, Nett Warrior, and GOSSRA (General Open Structure Architecture).
