ANDERSON POWER PRODUCTS® ANNOUNCES NEW POWERMOD®HP CONNECTOR

Anderson Power Products® (APP) announces its new PowerMod®HP (high power) connector family, featuring touch-safe female housings, integral positive latches and cable strain relief. These safety features, combined with the ease of connector assembly, establish a new standard for cost effective, high power connectors.

APP’s PowerMod HP connector is rated 125 amps at a 30o C temperature rise and may be used in appropriate applications to 175 amps. The product accommodates American wire sizes from #6 to #2 AWG and metric wires from 16 to 35mm2. These connectors use APP’s patented Sterling contact technology that offers low electrical resistance, provide a minimum of 500 mating cycles and are rated for circuit interruption (true hot-plug).

The unique latching system, with distinct blue buttons for clear identification, offers superior security and ergonomics. These connectors are IP 20 rated (touch safe) 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. An innovative cable strain relief kit, which encompasses all applicable wire sizes, is available as a product option for additional reliability.

PowerMod HP is offered in ten different connector housing types, including right angle, bus bar, panel mount and blind- mate/float selections, delivering broad design flexibility for current and future high power interconnections.
