Anderson Power Products announces new connector family
Dec. 22, 2004 - Family features touch-safe housings, integral positive latches and cable strain reliefs.
Anderson Power Products has announced its new PowerMod HP, high-power connector family.
The family features touch-safe female housings, integral positive latches and cable strain reliefs. These safety features, combined with the ease of connector assembly, are designed to establish a new standard for cost effective, high power connectors.
APP's PowerMod HP connector is rated 125 amps at a 30 degree C temperature rise and may be used in appropriate applications to 175 amps. The product accommodates American wire sizes from No. 6 to No. 2 AWG and metric wires from 16 to 35 mm. These connectors use APP's patented Sterling contact technology that offers low electrical resistance, provides a minimum of 500 mating cycles and are rated for circuit interruption.
The latching system, with distinct blue buttons for clear identification, is designed to offer superior security and ergonomics. These connectors are IP 20-rated for user safety, and the integral coding key provides further protection by allowing the user to configure unique mating of up to 6 individual connectors. A strain relief kit, which encompasses all applicable wire sizes, is available as a product option for additional reliability.
The PowerMod HP is offered in 10 different connector housing types, including right angle, bus bar, panel mount and blind-mate/float selections, delivering broad design flexibility for present and future high power interconnections.
APP is based in Sterling, MA. For more information visit www.andersonpower.com.
