Eight robust frame types are available in the ODU-MAC Silver-Line and the new P4+ frame offers an increased tolerance compensation with a radial play of +/- 4 mm, ensuring optimal compensation for misalignment – now making even more extreme centring tasks possible.

The P4+ frame featues:

Compensation : axial 1mm, radial +/- 4mm

Mounted floating on both sides

100,000 mating cycles minimum

Optional grounding up to 10 mm²

No minimum order quantity

Cable assembly included

Modular and ready for immediate use

The docking frames are available in custom lengths to suit the required modules, thus allowing the transmission of different media via a single connector. Choose a combination of signals, power, high-current, high-voltage, RF signals (coax), air or fluids, data transmission and fibre-optics. Get your hybrid connector as a complete solution including cable assembly – your interface will then be ready for immediate use.

Robust in any environment

Uses for the P4+ frame include docking applications in industry, test & measurement engineering, as well as end-of-line testing and mechanical engineering.

One obvious use, for example, is as a charging interface for autonomous vehicles or for automatic docking during battery replacement. Furthermore, these ODU-MAC Silver-Line frames have already proven their durability and robustness in military vehicles.
