Features and Benefits Printable Version  
  • Finger Proof - Minimizes the potential contact with live contacts, per UL 1977, sec. 10.2
  • Mechanical Keyed Color Coded Housings - Prevents accidental mating of connectors operating at different voltage levels.
  • Ergonomic Design - Is "user friendly" during connection and disconnection of the system.
  • Molded Side Grooves - Allows for direct panel mounting, for panel thickness of .048 to .062 inches (1.22 to 1.57 mm) or a panel mount bracket.
  • Genderless Design - Makes assembly quick and easy and reduces number of parts stocked.
  • Flat wiping contact system - Allows for minimal contact resistance at high current, wiping action cleans contact surface during disconnection.
  • UL Approved for Current Interrupt - Safe for "hot Plug" of battery power.
  • UL94-V0 Housing Material - Provides security in knowledge that the connector chosen meets strict UL flammability ratings

Product Information
Anderson Power Products (APP), a leader in interconnect solutions, offers the highly-durable SBS50 Finger Proof connector. This 2 pole housing, offers APP customers a finger proof design. The design minimizes contact with live contacts, per UL 1977 and UL 60950 regulations, for systems operating over 50 volts, where risk of shock can be health threatening.

The SBS50's slim, contoured ergonomic design allows the operator greater ease when connecting and disconnecting. This along with APP's flat wipe contact technology, make hot plugging and unplugging easy and safe while using minimal real estate. These housings are also keyed to prevent accidental mating of components operating at different voltage levels. Molded side grooves allow secure panel mounting for panel thickness of .048 to .062 inches (1.22 to 1.57 mm).
