Anderson Power Products Introduces the SBS Mini

The compact size, power handling capabilities, and safety features make SBS Mini ideal for a broad range of applications.

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. New features were added over time with the launches of the SBS, SBE, & SBX connectors.


SBS Mini securely holds two (2) crimp and poke contacts with sacrificial tips to enable hot swap capabilities on DC circuits. The low resistance contacts accept 20 to 10 AWG (0.75 to 4.0 mm²) wires allowing up to 52 amps of UL rated performance per position.

Rugged one-piece housings fully insulate each contact position for 600V capability. 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, Portable Power Storage & Generation, and small-to-mid kVA capacity UPS systems.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
