ANDERSON POWER PRODUCTS INTRODUCES 340 AMP SB® 2/0 CONNECTOR

Anderson Power Products (APP) continues to search for ways to offer system designers increased power connections in compact formats!

Anderson Power Products® (APP®), a leader in high power interconnect solutions, announces a new addition to the SB® connector family with the release of their new 2 pole SB® 2/0 connector. APP® continues to search for ways to offer system designers increased power connections in compact formats. The SB® 2/0 offers larger wire capability and increased current carrying capability over the similar sized SB® 175 connector.


The proven SB® connector family is based on the original "Storage Battery" connector that pioneered flat wiping contact technology over 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 amps and 600V. 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 popular SB® 175 connector, but is designed to fit contacts for 2/0 AWG or 70 mm² wires. These modifications allow the new SB® 2/0 to offer up to 340 amps 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.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
