Product Information
Invented by Anderson Power Products®, the innovative SBE® connectors provide cost-effective reliability, design flexibility and safety for your products' manufacture, installation and maintenance. APP's 2 pole connectors are available for 80, 160, 320 and 700 amp ratings for use to 150 Volts continuous AC or DC operation. There are SBE® connectors for many applications and wire sizes, #6 (13.3mm²) to 300 mcm (152.0²mm). Mechanical keys ensure connectors will only mate with connectors of the same color. Different color housings are selected to identify voltages, thus preventing mismatching of the power supply system.

The housings are interchangeable, genderless interconnects. Insert contacts into housings and plug together for a clever, simple and low-cost solution to power interconnection.
