Touch-safe protection is provided in all three positions by eliminating finger contact with live circuits per IEC60950.
Anderson Power Products SB® 2/0 Connector is the newest addition to the SB connector family. The new connector has the same compact size as the SB175 connector. Larger wire capability allows the new SB 2/0 to provide up to 340 amps of power and minimize voltage drop over extended cable lengths. SB 2/0 housing features a genderless design. The connector can be cross mated with SB 175 housing, but amperage will be limited to the SB 175 rating. Learn more.
Anderson Power Products Solar SPEC Pak® Connector Series uses rugged and environmentally sealed (IP68) shells to protect APP® Powerpole® contacts and housing. The customer-configured Solar SPEC Pak® is designed specifically to meet the requirements of the photovoltaic industry conforming to NEC 2008 requirements for first make/last break ground and a locking feature that requires a tool to unlock. It's also the first multipole connector to conform to UL 6703A. The adaptive design lends itself towards use in numerous other markets including wind power, fuel cells, mass transportation, off-road vehicles, agricultural equipment, oil and petro chemical exploration, and many more. The core APP® Powerpole® technology within the SPEC Pak® is proven reliable and cost effective. The broad selection of touch safe, color-coded Powerpole® housings with power, signal, and ground contacts accept a broad range of wire gauges, #24 to #10 AWG (0.25 to 4.0mm²), giving users thousands of flexible design solutions in a single interconnect.
Anderson Power Products has designed the Saf-D-Grid Line Power Connectors to replace traditional IEC C14 power connectors in DC applications. The Saf-D-Grid Power Connector from Anderson Power Products is an innovative new design in plug and receptacles that features a touch safe shell with locking mechanism and a first mate/last break ground for a more secure and safe connection in a similar footprint to the current IEC C14 connections. Saf-D-Grid Connectors were designed for use with data servers and in other industries where the growing trend is DC power storage only. The Saf-D-Grid Power Connectors are also AC rated, have power handling capability for 20 amps instead of 13 amps with traditional IEC C14 connectors, and are hot-plug rated for both electronic (capacitive) and electrical (resistive) loads.
Anderson Power Products SBS®75x Connector provides high
power and auxiliary connections in a single housing. Wire-to-wire and
wire-to-board configurations feature two power contacts rated up to 110
amps and up to 4 auxiliary power contacts rated up to 20 amps. The
patented SBS®75x Connector complies with IEC60950
finger proof requirements to provide user protection and safety. This
is of particular importance in applications where DC voltages exceed 30
volts and can be health threatening. The auxiliary pin contacts on the
wire connector are available in four lengths when sequencing is
required. Auxiliaries have a mate last / break first connection in
relation to the power contacts. All contact positions are rated for
circuit interruption (hot plugging).
Anderson Power Products' SPEC Pak® 4 Pole Connector series
features rugged and environmentally sealed (IP68) shells to protect
existing APP® Powerpole® contacts and housings. Anderson Power Products
offers a broad selection of touch safe, color-coded Powerpole® housings
with power, signal and ground contacts. Powerpole contacts accept a
broad range of wire gauges, #24 to #10 AWG (0.25 to 4.0 mm²), giving
designers thousands of flexible design solutions in a single connector.
Designed to be used anywhere a rugged and waterproof high-power, signal
and ground connectors are required, the Anderson Power Products SPEC
Pak®4 Pole Connectors are well-suited for mass transportation, off-road
vehicles, factory automation, oil and petrochemical exploration, and
Anderson Power Products developed the PowerMod® Connector
family as a high density power connector system with maximum design
flexibility. PowerMod Connectors deliver high power performance using a
#16 contact rated to 30 amps per UL 1977 and IEC512-3 test 5a and
mechanical polarized housings designed to mate one-way ensuring proper
circuit mating. Optional positive latches and backshells offer
additional safety and security. This connector family provides
application flexibility with up to four sequential pin mating options
for Mate First / Break Last and Mate Last / Break First circuits.
Designed for PCB, panel, or cable mounting, PowerMod Connectors are
available in 13 sizes and configurable for almost any application.
Anderson Power Products' SPEC Pak® Mini 3 Pole Connectors consist of small, IP68 sealed connectors UL rated to carry up to 22 amps per contact at 600 volts. The connectors are ideal for applications requiring power or power and signal combined in a compact environmentally sealed (IP68) package. Contacts are 30µ gold plated to provide low resistance for up to 500 mating cycles, and are available for wires ranging from 24 AWG to 14 AWG (0.25 to 1.5mm2). The male contacts are also available in 3 lengths to enable sequencing as required. The connectors meet the UL1977 Sec 10.2 touch safe requirements and have an integral latch to prevent accidental un-mating. SPEC Pak Mini 3 connectors are manufactured of durable polycarbonate material and meet UL94 V-0 flame resistance requirements.
Anderson Power Products Multipole Connectors are genderless connectors with color coded mechanical voltage keys to prevent mismatching power supplies and electrical outlets.
