Anderson Power Products Offers Touch-Safe SBS®75x Connector For Hazardous Voltage Applications
Anderson Power Products® (APP), a leader in high power interconnect solutions, announces a new addition to the Finger Proof Family of products with the release of the SBS®75x Connector.
The patented connector provides power contacts rated up to 110 amps and the touch-safe design provides protection to the user by eliminating finger contact with live circuits per UL1977, section 10.2. The SBS®75x is recommended for use with hazardous DC voltages in systems operating from 50 to 600 volts, where risk of shock can be health threatening. In addition, the housing accepts up to four auxiliary contacts for applications requiring signal capability. The male signal contacts (6.4 mm to 9.3 mm) are available in four lengths for when sequencing is required and provide a make last/break first connection in relation to the power contacts. The SBS®75x utilizes APP's Flat Wipe Contact Technology for the power contacts allowing it to be rated for circuit interruption (hot plugging) under load when no auxiliary contacts are used
The SBS®75x's slim, ergonomic design is contoured to fit the operator's grip, allowing for greater ease during connection/disconnection.. Molded side grooves allow secure panel mounting for panel thickness of .048 to .062 inches (1.22 to 1.57 mm), while using minimal real estate.
