Sterling, MAAnderson Power Products (APP) offers the Powerpole, PCB Series, Power Pak, Bus Bar, SBS, SB, SBE, SBO and SBX connectors of various gender, contact types, termination, wire and pin length, and applicable tooling, and accessory items.

The Powerpole family includes the pin and socket connector series, designed as ground terminals for make-first/break-last connections and the standard Powerpole modular connectors available in 15, 30, 45, 75, 120 and 180 amp ratings for use through 600 Volts continuous ac or dc operation and wire sizes, from #20 (0.5 mm) to 1/0 AWG (53.5 mm).

The printed circuit board (PCB) contact series, when used with the Powerpole 15/45, PP75 and SB50 connector housings, provides a reliable wire to printed circuit board connection. Rated at 25 to 55 A, 600 V ac/dc operation. Powerpole Pak series provides a high impact and corrosion-resistant black thermoplastic outer shell for the 10, 15, 30 and 45 A Powerpole connectors. The Powerpole Pak series includes cable clamps to provide strain relief and integral latches to prevent accidental disconnection of the equipment.

APP’s rugged Bus Bar contacts are used with the Powerpole and SB connector housings. The connectors attach directly to a copper bus, while offering a quick disconnect design that minimizes the expense of system assembly, replacement, or repair. APP’s multipole line, including the SBS, SB, SBE, SBO and SBX connectors, 2/3 pole connectors from 50 to 700 A for use to 150/600 V continuous ac or dc operation and wire sizes, from #16 (1.3 mm2) up to 300 MCM (152.0 mm2). Each series offers its own unique features, including mechanical keys to ensure connectors will only mate with connectors of the same color, different color housings to identify various voltages to prevent the mismatching of the power supply system, ergonomic housings, and auxiliary contacts.
