Following extensive discussions with some existing customers, ODU have created a hybrid rectangular connector, incorporating expertise from its range of push-pull locking circular connectors into their ODU-MAC Blue-Line product range.

The resultant PUSH-LOCK creates an even more compact ODU-MAC modular connector with a design that makes these innovative hybrid connectors stand out from the crowd.

The goal was to offer a connector that was ergonomic, easy to use, and highly flexible – in a style that was as small as possible. The size was incredibly important, so as to meet the growing trend for miniaturisation. The result is a handy hybrid IP67 connector capable of  over 5,000 mating cycles, that can be equipped with various module inserts and yet has a relatively large M25 cable outlet.

Push-pull locking is incredibly simple and reliable. This locking style saves a huge amount of space, so several connectors can be mounted very close to each other – an advantage that is inextricably linked to its locking principal. This, combined with low mating and de-mating forces, means the connector can be used intuitively with just one hand.
