ODU AMC® High-Density

Innovation in a compact package.

  • Mechanical and electrical robustness
  • Contact density up to 40 contacts
  • Break-Away with optional screw-locking for maximum safety


From medical technology to consumer electronics to automotive technology: the trend toward miniaturization continues. High-Density connectors provide the highest possible number of contacts in the most compact space. It gives developers new possibilities and solutions while simultaneously challenging the manufacturer. Because the connectors’ reliability and electrical and mechanical robustness must remain intact in spite of the compact size.

With a diameter of less than 10 mm to 18.5 mm and a contact density of up to 40 contacts, the ODU AMC® High-Density series proves that premium quality can also come in small packages. In addition to the High-Density signal connector, the range also includes versions for "Power" (up to 15 A) and "Data Transfer" (USB® 3.1 Gen11 with 5A power) in the most compact space. 

With the new flexible 2-in-1 solution, the ODU AMC® High-Density series offers on the one hand the possibility of fast locking and unlocking of the connection and on the other hand additional protection through screw locking in case of high vibration loads whenever this is necessary. In future, two locking types will be combined in a single component: screw locking and break-away. Both the plug and the receptacle are downward compatible.
