Anderson Power Products® Introduces the SBS™ Mini, DC Power Connector

Anderson Power Products® is excited to introduce the SBS™ Mini, our smallest ever DC power connector in the legendary SB® product group. Since 1953, the SB® has set a proven record of performance using the innovative flat wiping contact technology. The SB® contact technology was then carried over to the popular Powerpole® connector with single position stackable housings.

“Users of our Powerpole® 15/45 often stack together two connector housings to create DC quick-disconnects for their battery powered devices such as Ham radios, remote control airplanes, and emergency equipment” said Michele Moon, product manager, APP. “SBS™ Mini simplifies the assembly process by offering a one piece housing that holds two Powerpole® 15/45 contacts.”

Sacrificial contact tips designed into all SB® and Powerpole® connectors enable hot swap capabilities on DC circuits. The low resistance Powerpole® contacts accept 20 to 10 AWG (0.75 to 4.0 mm²) wires allowing up to 52 amps of UL rated performance per position.

SBS™ Mini adds additional insulation to the mating interface to protect against accidental exposure to live circuits. Easy to grip housings inherit color-coded mechanical keys from the SB® connector. Each key is assigned a unique color for quick foolproof circuit identification. This is of particular importance when distinguishing series from parallel connections, or circuits operating at incompatible voltages.

The compact size, power handling capabilities, and safety features make SBS™ Mini ideal for a broad range of applications including: UAV’s, Emergency Equipment, and Portable Power Storage & Generation.
