The plug for the battery operation may be one of the simplest inventions in the area of electronic vehicles, but it is also an essential component and can be a constant error source for devices, electric circuits and batteries – if it is not chosen carefully.
For 100 years Anderson Power has been known for high-quality technical expertise on the subject of mains power components for battery plug connectors and is renowned worldwide for high quality. Especially in the field of “SB” and “SBX” plugs, that are known as a standard in the industry of battery operation, we receive complete customer satisfaction.
The contactors are manufactured after Anderson’s patented “self-cleaning principle” and guarantee, with constant pressure on the compound spring, insensitivity against vibration and spark generation, protecting the battery and technical mechanisms.
Silver covered copper contactors ensure a higher conductivity and a longer life period on above average use. Low contact resistance allows also a short term overload.
The contactors can be crimped or soldered to the conductor. The identical half housings are made of resistible, solid electrical Lexan Polycarbonate and close in the entirely rust free steel compound spring. High stability and a long life period are guaranteed by the mentioned material and a simple, but solid mechanical construction. The connectors are tested for 15.000 insertion-withdrawal operations.
Identical half connectors make the stock holding easier. Each half connector is made out of 3 pieces: one housing and two identical contacts.
The installation saves time and labour hence reducing assembly costs. Service costs will also be lower because of stable constructions and permanent contacts.
The housings are made of non-conductive material and connectors prevent reverse polarity. The contacts are independently replaceable for greater safety for personnel and equipment.
The half housings are marked with mechanical codes and colours to prevent dangerous and expensive mismatches between batteries and machines or chargers with different voltages.
