The SB connector family from Anderson Power Products now includes a 2-pole connector, the SB 2/0 connector, which offers increased power connections in compact formats, with larger wire capability and increased current carrying capability over the similar sized SB 175 connector.
The SB connector family is based on the original “Storage Battery” connector that pioneered flat wiping contact technology more than a half century ago. Two to three positions in a genderless, color-coded, mechanically-keyed housing are suitable for a wide array of power connection applications up to 450 A and 600 V. Low resistance silver-plated contacts for wire sizes from 300 mcm (152 mm²) to 16 AWG (1.3 mm²) are held inside rugged non-conductive plastic housings.
SB 2/0 offers the same external dimensions as the SB 175 connector, but is designed to fit contacts for 2/0 AWG or 70 mm² wires. These modifications allow it to offer up to 340 A of power in the same form factor of the SB 175 connector that is limited to 280 amps. Larger wire sizes also help to minimize voltage drop over extended cable lengths.
