Multi-axial rotational connector (MARC) from Anderson Power Products is designed to mate while traveling through an arc with a 3 in. minimum radius. Suited to medical and mobility applications, it is rated to 30A while combining power, signal, and ground circuitry in one package. UL listed connector enables rotational blind mating with approximately 0.090 inches of error correction and features mechanically keyed housing to ensure proper mating.

The connector is two-row horizontally-oriented and has eight powerpole circuits integrated into a blind mate housing. Using flat wiping contacts, MARC can be configured with 8 standard length contacts or 6 standard length and 2 pre-mate ground contacts. The connector is rated to 10,000 mating cycles and constructed of a chemically resistant PBT plastic, which the company says makes it rugged and durable. www.andersonpower.com Anderson Power Products
