Anderson Power Products (APP) has released the two-pole SBS50 Finger-Proof connector, which is recommended for use with hazardous DC voltages in systems operating from 50 to 600 volts where risk of shock can be health threatening.

The patented design is contoured to fit the operator’s grip, allowing for greater ease with minimal effort when connecting or disconnecting. At the same time, it provides protection by eliminating finger contact with live circuits, per EN 950 and UL 60950 specifications.

In addition, the SBS50’s colour-coded housings are keyed to prevent accidental mating of connectors operating at different voltage levels.

It also utilizes APP’s flat wipe contact technology, which makes it rated for circuit interruption (hot plugging) under load.
