CAMARILLO, Calif., 19 Jan. 2015. ODU-USA in Camarillo, Calif., is introducing the Push-Pull circular connectors for military radio, radar, submarine sonar, and similar applications in rugged and harsh environments.

The Push-Pull metal housing of the connectors ensure thousands of mating cycles with a locking system that allows the connection to secure itself when mated.

The design prevents the connectors from accidental disconnection, and the connectors disconnect when the user pulls back the outer sleeve. The connectors meet IP68 watertight capabilities, blind mating abilities in hard-to-reach spaces, and robotic mating.

The Push-Pull circular connectors are applicable to military, medical, industrial, and test and measurement applications. For more information contact ODU-USA online at www.odu-usa.com.
