Anderson Power Products (APP) announced the expansion of the SPEC Pak® family of environmentally sealed connectors, which now includes Mid-Power SPEC Pak®. Mid-Power SPEC Pak®, like the other connectors in the SPEC Pak family, is rugged and environmentally sealed (IP68) and leverages APP’s core Powerpole® flat wiping contact technology.
Mid Power SPEC Pak has power handling capabilities up to 80 amps at 600 volts, AC or DC, with signal. This interconnect will accept up to four power contacts ranging in size from 12 to 6 AWG (3.3 to 13.3 mm²) and up to eight auxiliary contacts ranging in size from 24 to 12 AWG ( 0.25 to 13.3 mm²).
The Mid Power SPEC Pak environmentally sealed (IP68) shells also have a weatherability rating of F1 and flame resistance rating of V-0. The wire-to-wire and wire-to-panel configurations feature a metal latch to prevent accidental un-mating. They will accommodate up to four Powerpole housings including power contacts. These Powerpole housings are available in a wide array of colors, providing color-coding options for easy assembly.
