Powerpole® Connector Series

This versatile connector series invented by Anderson Power Products (APP®) meets a wide range of power connection needs. The four housing sizes in the Powerpole® product family can carry a wide range of amperage and wire sizes in the most compact footprint. For currents up to 350A and from wire sizes of #20 AWG (0.75 mm²) to 3/0 (70 mm²). Powerpole® can handle them all!  A wide range of colored housing options can be stacked together to create a proven reliable custom connector. These housings can be used with different contacts to create wire-to-wire, wire-to board, or wire-to-busbar connections. The Powerpole® connector combines high quality materials with a cost-effective and innovative design for powerful versatility.

FEATURES

    Offers greatest longevity when using high power, elevated temperature applications.
  • Colored coded housings
    Help to ensure that connectors are assembled and mated correctly.
  • Molded-in dovetails
    Secures individual connectors together.
  • Powerpole® pin & socket series connector (PP10/30)
    Green housing is a visual identification of ground terminal
  • Chemical Resistant Housings available
  • UL94 V-0 housing material
    Provides security in knowledge that the connector chosen meets strict flammability ratings

Powerpole® Connectors - PP10 Pin & Socket

Powerpole® pin & socket series connector, designed as ground terminal are for make-first/break-last connections. They provide 600 Volts continuous, AC or DC operation. Wire sizes range from #14 to #16 AWG (2.1 to 1.3 mm²). Can be assembled with standard Powerpole PP15/45 series.

Powerpole® Connectors - PP30 Pin & Socket

Powerpole® pin & socket series connector, designed as ground terminal are for make first/break-last connections. They provide 600 Volts continuous, AC or DC operation This series accommodates #10 AWG (5.3 mm²). Can be assembled with standard Powerpole PP15 series.

Powerpole® Connectors – PP15: up to 55 Amps

PP15/45 series are the smallest Powerpole® housings. They can be used for wire-to-wire or wire-to-board applications. Wire sizes from #20 AWG (0.75 mm²) to #10 (6 mm²) offer power capabilities up to 55 amps per pole. Finger proof housings and the ability to incorporate first-mate last-break ground connectors enhance the capabilities of this Powerpole® series. Please don’t forget to check our Powerpole Pak connector series for the blindmate capabilities.

Powerpole® Connectors - PP75: up to 120 Amps

PP75 series Powerpole® housings can be used for wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, and wire-to-busbar applications. Wire sizes from #16 AWG (1.3 mm²) to #6 (13.3 mm²) offer power capabilities up to 120 amps per pole. Locking housings offer the capability to secure Powerpole® housings to each other and to mounting pads. 

Powerpole® Connectors - PP120: up to 240 Amps

PP120 series Powerpole® housings are designed to accommodate up to 1/0 (50 mm²) wires and handle high currents up to 240 amps. Reducing bushings allow PP120 to accept down to #8 (10 mm²) wires. Multiple colors of stackable housings combine with low resistance flat wiping technology to offer powerful connection capability.

Powerpole® Connectors - PP180: up to 350 Amps

PP180 are the largest of the Powerpole® series housings. They are designed to accommodate up to 3/0 (70 mm²) wires and handle high currents up to 350 amps. Busbar contacts are also
available for power inputs and takeoffs. Color-coded housings minimize user confusion and the potential of cross mating circuits.

Powerpole® Pak Connectors - PP15 to PP45

Powerpole® Pak connector shells enclose stacked groupings of PP15-45 sized housings in a durable black shell for a finished connector appearance and additional features. Inline, panel mount, and blindmate configurations are available. Plug shells offer the option of integral latches and strain relief to help secure your connection. 

“T” Pak 2 Way Splitter

The Powerpole® “T” Pak connector is a 2 way electrical splitter that splits electrical current from one incoming circuit into two outgoing circuits. The standard configuration is pre-wired for AC 3 phase, 3 wire plus ground configurations. The “T” Pak can also be used for AC single phase plus ground or DC 2 wire plus ground applications by not using either the red or white power positions. “T” Pak is pre-wired from the factory allowing plug and play field installation of modular office and industrial equipment. UL recognition up to 20 amps and 600 volts is achieved when mating Powerpole® Pak plugs with #12 AWG wire.

Plug Shell without Latch

Can mate in line with other plug shells with or without latches, or mate to a panel mount receptacle. For use with Powerpole® wire connectors only. Cable Clamp and Hardware Pak or Retaining Pins must be ordered separately. 

Plug Shell with Latch

Can mate in line with other plug shells without latches, or mate to a panel mount receptacle. For use with Powerpole® wire connectors only. Cable Clamp and Hardware Pak or Retaining Pins must be ordered separately. 

Plug Shell with Latch & Non-Conductive Strain Relief

2X3 Powerpole® Pak offers an improved ergonomic shell for easier latch operation as well as a plastic, non-conductive strain relief. The strain relief can accommodate up to a 6 conductor #10 AWG cable. Can mate to a panel mount receptacle. For use with Powerpole® wire connectors only. Cable Clamp and Hardware Pak or Retaining Pins must be ordered separately.

Snap-in Receptacle Shell

Mate to plug shells with or without latches, or mate to another panel mount receptacle to create a bulkhead to bulkhead connection. For use with Powerpole® wire or PCB connectors.
