Anderson Power Products® Offers Powerpole® 15/45 Finger Proof Connector for User Safety
Anderson Power Products (APP), leader in power interconnect solutions, introduces the versatile Powerpole® 15/45 Finger Proof Connector. The connector is designed for use in applications where end user access to the energized connector is not otherwise protected.
APP's Powerpole 15/45 finger proof connector minimizes potential contact with live contacts by preventing finger access when the connector is unmated and energized. The connectors meet the accessibility protection requirements of IEC IP20 and UL1977 sec 10.2.
The Powerpole's flat-wiping contact system reduces contact resistance at high current, while the wiping action cleans contact surface during connection/disconnection. Low-detent contacts are also available for applications requiring low insertion/withdrawal force. Contacts are available reeled and in loose piece designs to support all product needs from engineering prototypes to low and high volume products.
The APP Powerpole 15/45's interchangeable genderless design allows for a quick and easy assembly while minimizing the number of parts stocked. Molded dovetails secure connectors into keyed assemblies, preventing misconnection with a similar configuration. Color modular housings provide visual identification for the proper mating connector.
Powerpole 15/45 connectors are rated 15, 30 and 45 amps for 600 volts of continuous AC or DC operation. Wire sizes range from #10 to #20 AWG (5.3 to .5 mm²).
