Anderson Power Products Launches 2 Pole 230 Amp Sb® Smart Connector With 16 Auxiliary Positions & Selective Mate Keys

Anderson Power Products® (APP®), a leader in high power interconnect solutions, announces a new addition to their multipole connector selection with the release of the new SB® Smart connector. The SB® Smart is designed to meet the connection needs for high power storage batteries which are integrated into a larger system or where batteries require monitoring & control circuits. New features introduced include an optional 16 position auxiliary power & signal module and an innovative selective mate keying system.

Two primary power contacts feature proven flat wiping contact technology invented by APP® over 60 years ago. Crimp and poke contacts are available for up to 1/0 AWG (50mm²) wire. These low-resistance silver plated contacts allow for a UL rating of up to 230 amps per pole. The rugged & UL94 V-0 flame retardant polycarbonate housing with power & signal contacts can last up to 10,000 mating cycles.

The SB® Smart auxiliary module can accommodate up to 16 auxiliary positions which are suitable for signal or low power (up to 20 amps). Crimp & poke gold plated, pin and socket contacts are available for 12-20 AWG (2.5 – 0.5mm²) wire. Pin contacts are available in 3 different lengths to allow sequencing within the auxiliary module. All auxiliary positions are sequenced make-last, break-first in relation to the power contacts.

Connector housings have an integral keying system which allows only intended connector halves to mate. Batteries, chargers, and the device / vehicle side of the connection all have their own unique keys which allow only battery-to-charger and battery-to-device / vehicle connections, while preventing charger to device connections. Housings also have an integral color-coded voltage key which can be used to prevent systems with dissimilar voltages or auxiliary configurations from mating.
