Having already successfully implemented a large number of system solutions, ODU can draw on a wealth of experience when approaching each new project and challenge.
This also applies to the development of advanced charging contacts for demanding AC and DC charging applications, which must comply with the strict specifications issued by manufacturers and legislators. Users expect high performance as well as absolute reliability and safety.
Our many years of experience and expertise in materials, coatings, and high-quality electrical connections are the key to delivering the required electrical and mechanical properties.
The ODU TURNTAC® high-performance contact system – for maximum performance, reliable operation, and a high current-carrying capacity combined with a large number of mating cycles.
We are ready for the future of eMobility – are you? Let’s take charging your electric vehicles to the next level! ODU is your experienced partner when it comes to finding innovative solutions for your charging connectors.
We are ready to help you implement your projects and jointly develop high‐performance contacts that meet your specifications.
ODU TURNTAC® is designed to support the NACS standard and guarantees reliability and durability for over 10,000 mating cycles. This robust and universal contact system is characterized by extremely low and stable contact resistance, so consistent performance is guaranteed throughout its service life.
To guarantee a safe and user-friendly charging process, ODU TURNTAC® features a special contact geometry that ensures low mating and demating forces – in accordance with the NACS charging standard.
ODU TURNTAC® contact technology is versatile and has been specially developed for charging applications. Due to its scalability, this technology can be used in all common charging standards. The contacts’ flexible design allows the contact system to be optimally adapted to the respective requirements.
No. The types of networks commonly used in the USA differ significantly from their European equivalents. While three and four-conductor systems with higher voltages are generally used in industry, the 120/240V single-phase system (single phase, grounded midpoint) is mainly used in the residential construction sector. In Europe, on the other hand, three phases with a mains voltage of 400V are common in residential buildings. Therefore, the higher mains voltage allows a higher charging capacity compared to NACS. In addition, a load on only two outer contacts would lead to a disruptive asymmetry in the grid load. And in the Asian region, they are taking an entirely different path – with the locally developed ChaoJi charging standard.
Yes, with ODU as your partner, you have access to a complete solution including the ideal plug and adapter for your desired charging standard. The ODU TURNTAC® contact technology installed in an ODU adapter combines superlative contact properties and high quality with economical prices. Our ODU SAE NACS adapter is especially suitable for NACS applications and increases the number of usable charging points for the end user. It is characterized by safe and convenient handling as well as a robust plastic housing – an optional integrated temperature sensor can also be installed to monitor the charging process.
