ODU offers a wide range of single contacts based on the ODU SPRINGTAC® and ODU LAMTAC® design. More than seventy years ago Otto Dunkel, the founder of ODU, invented the Springwire contact. Since then, the Springwire contact has been the industry standard for critical applications in medical electronics, industrial power systems, military applications, transportation, and many other fields.
Turned, stamped and slotted contacts are also available for custom applications.

No contact technology transfers signal and power more reliably than the patented ODU SPRINGTAC® system. Thanks to the individually suspended Springwires, even in small diameters this contact offers a high number of contact surfaces. Up to 15 springs are mounted into even the smallest design with a 0.76mm contact diameter. Each spring makes contact with the pin allowing for an extremely high number of mating cycles with consistently low contact resistance.
The ODU LAMTAC® stamped contact is capable of mating and de-mating up to 10,000+ cycles. As versatile as the ODU SPRINGTAC®, this contact technology delivers a high-reliability connector system at a cost-effective price.
The flat socket system was designed specifically to test flat or rectangular contacts typically found in automotive connector harnesses. The flat socket system is ideal for testing applications where 50,000+ mating cycles are required.
