The direct connector system for the automotive world of tomorrow

Compensate the tolerances. Master the challenges!

The future of innovative connector systems

Modularization, miniaturization, and automation. All these design challenges and the massive rise of power requirements make it necessary to fundamentally rethink the electrical connections on power units – without subsequently screwing.

"The increasing integration of additional functions in electric drives necessitates a rethink with regard to the associated connector systems."
Rudolf Dechantsreiter, Head of Business Unit Automotive

Multi‐position interfaces are required at various points on the drivetrain. In some cases, wired connectors can be used – however, when connecting modules directly, a docking system is the better choice. In particular, connections that include rigid busbars require a contact system that can precisely compensate for tolerances and thus allow automated assembly.

ODU DOCKING MATE®: the direct connector system is our answer to these challenges.

It uses the contact technology behind the ODU LAMTAC® Flex and can thus compensate for tolerances of up to 1 millimeter in the contact system. However, this is only one of the many advantages that make ODU DOCKING MATE® the innovative connector system of tomorrow.

  • Customized housings to meet your requirements  
  • Compact size for flat connections and small installation spaces 
  • Automated assembly possible

The future will be electrifying.


The decarbonization will take place in all areas of mobility and transportation. Beginning with light and medium up to heavy duty trucks there will be a change.

The arrangement of modular battery packs varies for all-electric transport vehicles and can be adapted to specific needs. Due to the modular design, each battery pack has a separate battery management system (BMS), that has to be integrated into the overall electric system. 
This requires the ODU DOCKING MATE®, which can reliably transmit power and signals, compensate tolerances and can be plugged in blindly.
