Connectors Increase Power Handling Capability

Wed, 03/30/2011 - 10:19am


Anderson Power Products® (APP®) introduces the SPEC Pak™ Extreme connector, the latest addition to the SPEC Pak™ connector series. The SPEC Pak™ Extreme connectors increase the power handling capability of the SPEC Pak™ series to 320 amps. This is achieved by using one of the four individual insert holders that offer customization though the use of our core Powerpole® Connector technology.

As a result of its innovative design, the SPEC Pak™ Extreme is capable of holding up to two PP180 connectors, four PP120 connectors, four PP120 connectors combined with two PP75 connectors or nine PP75 connectors. A PP15/45 housing adapter can be substituted for one of the PP120 connectors to provide additional power, signal and/or ground options for greater design flexibility.

Contacts accommodate wire sizes ranging from 24 to 3/0 AWG (0.25 to 85.0 mm²) and can be inserted in a wide range of color housings providing color-coding options and design flexibility. The combination of housings, power, ground and signal contacts, housed in an IP68 rated, UL94 V-0 rated shell, offer thousands of design options for the most demanding applications.
