Euro Battery Connector

E Series

The Anderson™ family of Euro Battery Connectors (EBC) are expertly designed for ease of use and incorporate an innovative contact carrier to simplify assembly. The EBC connectors include the industry standard 80, 160, and 320 sizes, all in accordance with DIN 43589-1. Design and materials offer performance that meets or exceeds all the requirements of EN1175-1. All materials chosen are RoHS compliant and selected to ensure years of reliability in adverse industrial environments. These attributes make the EBC DIN connectors the ideal choice for a wide range of industrial applications in the Material Handling, Battery Charging, Utility Vehicles, Motive Power, and Sweeper/Scrubbers markets amongst many others.

A Series

The Anderson Power Products® 'A' Series battery connector uses the Din 43589-1 form factor which has been modified to meet requirements for North American markets. While  similar in appearance to the E series it is not intermateable. The “A” series connectors offer contacts and crimp tooling selections developed for both American Wire Gauge (AWG) as well as metric wires.  This series offers auxiliary wire contacts that accept a broad range of wires and used for communication/ control applications.  Another key difference is the use of a higher temperature, higher impact resistant plastic for applications that require these attributes. This change in plastic does not meet EN1175-1 which requires a material that offers higher resistance to Hydrofluorocarbons. The connector design incorporates an advanced, cost effective contact carrier for ease of assembly and fewer components.  All materials are selected to ensure years of reliable service under adverse battery environments.

FEATURES
