Anderson Power Products™ Multipole Connectors

Rugged Multipole SB®, SBS®, and SBE®/SBX® Connectors

Anderson Power Products™ Multipole SB®, SBS®, and SBE®/SBX® connectors offer the flat wiping technology and safety that Anderson Power Products™ is known for in one connector built to service several needs. Auxiliary and grounding contacts are securely housed in one assembly.

Multipole connectors in this series vary for specific applications, with some offering touch-safety (providing finger proofing in environments where human contact is a consideration), chemical resistance (highly resistant to hydrocarbons and solvents commonly used in transportation and industrial applications), or a heat resistant body (UL rated for up to 350 amps per pole) providing a broader operating temperature range.

Anderson Power Products™ Multipole Connectors are ideal for UPS systems, telecommunications, forklift trucks, wheelchairs, electric vehicles, chargers, power electronics and a wide range of industrial uses.

Multipole Connector Key Features:

  • Genderless Housings
    Provide simplified assembly and minimize the number of components

  • Low Resistance Connection
    Silver or tin plated copper contacts inside housings that strongly force the contacts together

  • Hot Plugging AC or DC
    Contacts feature a sacrificial tip that allows high current circuit interrupt

  • Keyed & Color Coded Housings
    Different color housings are selected to identify voltages, preventing accidental cross mating of circuits. Mechanical keys ensure that they will only mate with connectors of the same color.

  • Self Securing Design
    Stainless steel springs create a robust force between the contacts that holds the multipole connector in the mated position

  • Auxiliary or Ground Positions
    For signal transmission or the added safety of a premate ground position
