ODU exhibiting at ISMRM 2022


ODU Connectors are pleased to be exhibiting at the ISRM Annual Conference & Exhibition  at the London ExCeL Centre, 7th – 12th May.

This is an important international event for the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) industry and we are looking forward to meeting-up again in person.

Specifically for MRI, ODU has introduced semi-automated soldering for micro-coax, RG178 and RG316 contacts – replacing crimping and providing improved lead times.

These MRI cable assemblies also offer MR balun tuning, single / 4 / 8 / 16 / 32 channel cables with high qualiy imaging and are available in small-medium batches and volume production.

ODU also offers 100% end-of-line automatic testing on each cable and assembly, including tests for insertion and withdrawal forces, hi-pot and conductivity.

ODU – high‐tech connector solutions for modern medical technology

Consistent performance and a high degree of failure protection are of vital importance in medical technology. As an interface specialist, we can help to produce safe, functional and elegant designs for all medical equipment manufacturers.

From MRI equipment to endoscopy, we design all our connectors in compliance with the strictest regulations and applicable standards, including IEC6061-1 and MDR 2021

  • High‐speed and high‐density technology
  • Sterilisable and autoclavable
  • EMC/EMI shielding
  • Glass-fibre, hybrid and non-magnetic connection options
  • Waterproof (IP50, IP67 and IP68) and hermetically-sealed options
  • Optional cable bend-relief and cable over-mouldings

ODU Fibre Optics for reliable optical connections

, ,

Whenever the highest data rates and fast, interference‐free transmissions are needed, our high‐performance optical technologies deliver quality and stability, serving a wide and demanding range of applications, with a portfolio of solutions including:

■ Expanded Beam technology for harsh environments and high mating cycles.

■ Physical Contact technology for up to 1,000 mating cycles.

■ Fibre only or hybrid versions.

■ Singlemode or multimode fibre

The Expanded Beam technology is an enhanced fiber optic solution, offering high-end transmission characteristics over many mating cycles. The excellent optical insertion and return loss performance remains unchanged, even under mechanical stress and harsh environmental conditions.

Physical Contact solutions are cost‐efficient optical connections that meet all standard requirements for fast and reliable data transmission, characterised by very low insertion loss, which makes up to 1,000 mating cycles possible.

We offer these as ready‐made complete assemblies

ODU Fiber Optic products are ideal for medical technology, industrial outdoor applications and mass-interconnect scenarios. These technologies are available in circular and modular connectors and can also be supplied as a customised fully-assembled fibre optic system

NEUTRIK extends powerCON® TRUE1® TOP connector series






TOP-L power connector with new design features accepts cable diameters of up to 16 mm

Ryde, Isle of Wight, 6 April 2022. NEUTRIK has announced the addition of the powerCON TRUE1 TOP-L to its market leading powerCON TRUE1 TOP range of heavy duty sealed power connectors for outdoor use, in the harshest environments and most demanding applications. powerCON TRUE1 TOP-L provides a connector compatible with the largest diameter power cables required for outdoor event and production applications, capable of accepting cable from 10 to 16 mm (0.39” – 0.63”) in diameter, making them ideal for extra heavy duty type cables.

The connectors are certified to EN 60320-1, IEC 60320-1, and UL 60320-1 when applied to appropriate cables (H07RN-F3G2.5 and SOOW 12/3, SJOOW 12/3). This allows mains cables to be assembled in accordance with UL 817, CSA C22.2 No. 21, and IEC/EN 60799. Conforming to NEUTRIK’s TOP standard, UL V0 and UL-F1-rated UV resistant materials, exceptional component quality and rugged construction are standard.

Features include breaking capability – CBC @ 16A 250VAC VDE (20 A 250 VAC) – and a patent-pending design that meets requirements preventing disassembly by hand. New HTLACA and HTLACB assembly and disassembly tools are designed for use with these connectors, and facilitate faster disassembly for periodic safety testing etc..

Commenting on the powerCON TRUE1 TOP-L, Neutrik UK Product Specialist Charlie Cook says, “As with our recent NSSC self closing caps, the new -L variant further extends the powerCON TRUE1 TOP series, making it the most versatile power connector with the widest ranging cable diameter compatibility; and the only power connector series with a product certified for 2.5mm2 H07RN-F and AGE 12/3 SOOW and SJOOW cables.”

The NEUTRIK TOP® (True Outdoor Protection) standard covers a comprehensive range of sealed power, signal and data connectors for outdoor event and production applications in the most adverse climatic and environmental conditions, mitigating their negative impact on ultimate production quality. Appropriate heavy-duty, harsh environment applications include AV, PA, lighting, signage and LED screens. The TOP series extends across the NEUTRIK powerCON TRUE1, etherCON and XLR product ranges, with IP65 rating and certified outdoor protection to UL 50E like UV resistance.
