Neutrik Group launches CONTRIK power distribution range in the UK


Professional portable power distribution for event, touring and mobile production facilities





Ryde, Isle of Wight, 10 February 2023. Neutrik UK is introducing the CONTRIK range of professional power distribution products. CONTRIK extends the Neutrik Group’s product offering with a portfolio of power distribution systems, innovative equipotential bonding systems and premium-quality power cables, specifically designed and specified for portable indoor and all-weather harsh application environments.

Employing automated precision manufacturing processes within the EU, together with high-quality components and materials, CONTRIK systems offer unsurpassed levels of quality, safety and reliability, and provide for reductions in cabling costs, complexity and man-hours. CONTRIK’s state-of-the-art multicore solutions further reduce complexity and cable volumes for demanding mobile and outdoor applications; these include pre-assembled multicore cables, Power Containers and Power Racks with multicore outputs, and highly protected multicore Turtles for distribution and daisy chaining.

Extensive testing for mechanical (IK) and environmental (IP) protection ensures CONTRIK systems are designed, constructed and designated to operate fully reliably in either ‘Xtreme’ or ‘Xtreme Outdoor’ environments.

Carefully designed housing concepts ensure high levels of protection, and ease of handling and transportation. CONTRIK’s exclusive Easylen® housing material uniquely provides high levels of flame retardancy, temperature resistance, UV protection, corrosion insensitivity, non-conductivity, and protection from mechanical impact (up to IK 10+).

The product range includes active (with circuit breakers) and passive (without circuit breakers) power distribution Containers, Racks, Turtles and Strips in various configurations,, supporting NEUTRIK powerCON TRUE1 or Schuko connectivity, as well as a range of pre-assembled powerCON cables and power multicore cables.

CONTRIK’s innovative and cost effective cPot professional mobile equipotential bonding systems comply with all regulatory requirements (DIN 15700) for indoor and outdoor event installations. Floor distributions, system cables, and other connection options for grounding, form a plug-in and go system for indoor and all-year round outdoor applications. The product range includes cPot cables of varying lengths, sPot distribution boxes, cPot connection points, to connect to different types of rigging and other structures, and cable extension and field assembly accessories.

The features and specifications that make CONTRIK power products a premium choice for event, touring and mobile production applications are directly transferable to other commercial, enterprise and industrial sector activities. Including construction, industrial engineering and maintenance sites, temporary sports and recreational facilities.

ODU Connectors Digital options for connector configuration – simply easy


Designers face a large range of options when creating interfaces for their product.  Whether for electrical signal, power, fibre optics, an alternative medium or a combination of all, the choices are almost limitless.

So, the main challenge for the connector supplier is to offer the OEM a simple methodology to find the ideal solution.

The classic way is for us to provide engineering support for in-depth design-in discussions. Understanding the requirements in detail and creating the ideal solution together is the best building block for a long-lasting business partnership.

However, some customers prefer to navigate their own way through the product offerings and expect easy access to technical data.

While print and online catalogues remain important as a complete compendium, search engines offer not only detailed product specifications for direct comparison, but also a selection of 3D files for easy integration into the clients own designs.

ODU offers both methods of design-in support and is also highly integrated into many external online platforms.

However, ODU’s own website offers the Product Finder,  This intuitive, easy-to-use system finds the optimal connector or cable-assembly and creates a data sheet.

Another advantage of the Product Finder is the identification of those products available via the ODU Express Delivery Service. Within 15 working days, up to 15 modular connectors or 150 metal circular connectors can be shipped worldwide.

Also, technical samples for design-in can be supplied FOC via this online tool.

ODU connectors – easy to find, easy to design, easy to order – simply easy.

Harting Mini PushPull ix Industrial®: Rugged strengths withstand harsh environments

, ,

The easy to use, well protected and compact PushPull connector series from HARTING is expanding. The new Mini PushPull is a waterproof and dustproof version of the ix Industrial® Ethernet interface, a perfect choice for fast and reliable data connectivity in demanding industrial environments and applications exposed to the elements.

Standardised according to IEC/PAS 61076-3-124, the ix Industrial® mating face in the Mini PushPull stands for reliable transmission performance and optional power supply via PoE/PoE+. With a 30% shorter housing compared to the HARTING PushPull RJ45, users benefit from a miniaturised data interface for demanding applications. PushPull is the preferential device connection technology, offering outstanding robustness in combination with simple and process-safe operation in waterproof and dustproof design to IP65 / IP67.

Compact, robust jacks are available for device integration on the PCB, providing maximum stability with five THR shield contacts. The jacks are available in three different versions:

  1. horizontal jack
  2. angled vertical jack
  3. vertical jack

All jacks are optionally available in the A and B codings for Ethernet and signals. The data contacts are designed as SMD contacts. This allows device manufacturers to process the PCB jacks according to the normal reflow soldering process.

The Mini PushPull add-on housing, which fits all matching jacks, is mounted in front of a rectangular mounting cut-out during device integration and connects the PCB jacks, providing IP65 / IP67 protection.

To aid integration into control cabinets and terminal boxes, the portfolio includes PushPull panel feedthroughs in A and B coding. These can be mounted quickly and easily in front of a rectangular mounting cut-out. They meet protection class IP65 / IP67 thanks to the integrated seal, whilst matching dust caps seal unused connectors and device interfaces securely.

Securely contacted plug connections are the prerequisite for stable network systems. To ensure correct connections under challenging conditions, PushPull connectors are straight forward and intuitive in their operation. Secure locking is signalled by an audible click, and the connection is released by simply pulling on the ergonomically optimised housing. To prevent unintentional disconnection, the removal of the connector can be blocked by way of a security ring.

PushPull connectors are the ideal device connection technology for all industrial electronics devices executed to protection classes IP65 / IP67, from sensors to controls and industrial computers.

ODU connectors returning to the Southern Manufacturing Show 7-9th February 2023 at Farnborough Exhibition Centre


ODU-UK Ltd are pleased to be back, meeting-up with customers old and new.

On display will be lots of new products, including the latest additions to the ODU

MINI-SNAP® Connector range:

Available in four series: L, K, B and F – characterised by robust metal housings with different surfaces. With push-pull locking or break-away function, these metal circular connectors ensure secure and stable connections. And with an interface diameter of just 6.4 mm, they can also be installed in the smallest spaces.

Fast Shipping from ODU

ODU Express ensures rapid availability of the company’s standard products.

Within 15 business days, ODU can ship up to 15 modular connectors (ODU-MAC®) or up to 150 metal circular connectors (ODU MINI-SNAP® / ODU AMC®) to its customers worldwide.

Furthermore, this outstanding service belies the fact that most industries are currently experiencing supply-chain bottlenecks and raw material shortages.

To support ever-faster electronics equipment innovation, suppliers need not only a wide range of standard products, but must also be fast and responsive when only a customer-specific solution will neatly solve the problem.

If you have a connector problem, then drop by Stand E70 and tell them exactly what you need.
