APP System Connects DC Devices To A Micro Grid

Anderson Power Products (APP) has launched the Saf-D-Grid connector system for use in the direct connection of DC electronic devices to a DC micro grid. The connector system is suitable for use in DC servers or any device connecting directly to renewable-energy sources such as solar or wind power. The Saf-D-Grid connector system meets international safety requirements for low-voltage applications to 400VDC, including UL950 and IEC60950.

The low-profile panel receptacle is designed to fit the standard panel cut-out for IEC320 C14 outlets, while providing touch-safe connections up to 20A at 600VDC. The connectors are hot-plug rated up to 700A in-rush current at 400V and shield the user from arc flash during unmating. Additional safety features include a first-mate, last-break contact to provide ground and an integral latch to prevent connectors from accidental unmating.

The polycarbonate housings are UL94 V-0 rated and plug power cords; they are over-moulded to provide strain relief during mating and unmating. They are available in 2m, 3m and 5m lengths in both single- and double-ended styles.
