January 31, 2014 - UL rated for safe disconnect of 400 Vdc, 20 A loads, Saf-D-Grid® Ultra Short Receptacle meets safety requirements for hazardous, low voltage applications per UL1977 and IEC 61984, as well as touch safety requirements of UL60950 and IEC60950. Proper voltage clearance and DC arc protection are achieved through unique geometries which minimize DC arc flash while shielding operator. Size compatible with 19.9 x 26.8 mm panel cut out, receptacle enables solder termination to wire.

Anderson Power Products Introduces the Saf-D-Grid® Ultra Short Receptacle


Anderson Power Products Inc.
13 Pratts Junction Rd., P.O. Box 579
Sterling, MA, 01564
USA



Press release date: January 23, 2014

Anderson Power Products® has lead the connector industry in development of DC power connection solutions since the introduction of the SB® electrical connector in 1953. Saf-D-Grid® builds on the proven contact technology used in SB and Powerpole® connectors by offering features required in 380VDC to 400VDC power distribution systems. APP® introduced the Saf-D-Grid connector system in January 2009 as a safe appliance power connector for server, telecommunication, and other devices up to 600 VDC.

Saf-D-Grid meets international safety requirements for hazardous, low voltage applications per UL1977 and IEC 61984, as well as touch safety requirements of UL60950 and IEC60950. The Saf-D-Grid is size compatible with the IEC 320 C13 and C14 AC connection system standard 19.9mm by 26.8mm panel cut out. It is the only connector system so sized that is UL rated for disconnect of a 400 VDC, 20 amp load. The new Ultra Short Receptacle minimizes space requirements within the device and enables solder termination to wire.

Offering a connector capable of safe disconnect of 400VDC, 20A loads requires the combination of several features. Saf-D-Grid is touch safe on both plug and receptacle sides to protect the user from capacitance in the line. Proper voltage clearance and DC arc protection are achieved through unique geometries which minimize the severity and duration of DC arc flash while shielding the operator.

Saf-D-Grid also enables greater power density by allowing up to 40A and 600V DC or AC within the same space of the IEC 320 C13 & C14 system that is limited to 10A and 250 VAC. This allows the use of Saf-D-Grid in AC systems that require more power by increasing the wattage capability within the existing connector space.
