    Users who need a solution that allows

  • to conduct strong DC currents,
  • for installation despite the small amount of space,
  • to provide protection against electric shock,
  • to use not only current contacts, but also additional signal contacts allowing the transmission of additional power control signals, measuring the battery charge status, etc., and air tubes allowing the electrolyte to circulate while quickly charging the battery;

    Anderson Power Products'

    flat and DIN connectors will provide the following benefits:

  • ability to conduct currents exceeding 500 A,
  • excellent ratio of the conducted current to the size of the connector,
  • up to 3 power contacts and up to 16 signal contacts in one housing,
  • accessories facilitating use - e.g. handles, cable clamps, caps, mounting plates, etc.
  • possibility of connecting and disconnecting under voltage (hot-plug),
  • contacts also for busbars and PCBs,
  • housing version resistant to temperatures up to -400C and to UV and aggressive chemicals,
  • coding using housing colors or special pins to protect against incorrect connection

    APP connectors can be used wherever it is necessary to transmit DC currents, e.g. in connections:

  • battery to charger,
  • battery for UPS,
  • between battery cells,
  • battery for the engine,
  • batteries for controllers,
  • motor controllers,
  • chargers for the controller,

    in devices and installations such as:

  • forklifts,
  • UPS,
  • cleaning machines,
  • traction batteries,
  • energy storage,
  • battery management systems (BMS),
  • electric vehicles: cars, bicycles, scooters, scooters, skateboards, golf carts, quads, construction, etc.,
  • AGV,
  • data centers,
  • medical devices,
