Hot tips for space saving

ODU has introduced thermal contact connectors claimed to provide up to 90 per cent space saving over conventional products. The contact can be supplied in nickel-chromium/nickel to connect to temperature probes, measuring leads and evaluation devices and can be fitted in the companys Mini-Snap circular connector housing with push-pull locking. Capable of connecting up to nine thermal elements in a single connector, the device is available with IP 68 protection and is housed in a robust metal casing. The push-pull locking system helps eliminate accidental disconnection and the devices can be used for more than 5000 mating cycles.
