Robust auxiliary connector

28 April 2010 Interconnection

The new APP 1x4 auxiliary connector from Anderson Power Products has four circuits to support the transmission of battery status, charge and discharge information for traction battery, fast charge and opportunity charge applications.

In relation to the power contacts, they provide a ‘last make/first break’ solution to eliminate arcing during mating and unmating. The connector is designed to mount into standard Anderson SBE160/320 and SBX175/350 connector housings.

Similar to the SBE and SBX connector series, the 1x4 auxiliary connector is robust and rated for 10 000 mating cycles, more than twice DIN 43589-1 products. A new retaining clip is available for ease of assembly and rapid field maintenance. The genderless housing accepts PowerMod pin and socket contacts with standard wire range from #20 to #12 AWG (0,50 to 2,5 mm²). Contacts for smaller wire sizes are available by special order. The pin contacts are available in up to four different lengths to support sequencing requirements.

The new connectors are targeted at a wide range of markets including UPS systems, telecommunications, material handling, personal mobility, mower electronics and others.
