Sold individually. Includes colored plastic housing that accepts crimped contact. Quantity 1 includes 1 colored plastic housing. Does not include metal contacts (sold separately)
15, 30 & 45 amp Powerpole connectors will mate with each other
The 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts all use the same housing. Therefore, they all connect to each other. The size of the flat contact area is the same for all contacts. The only difference between the 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts is the size of the receiving barrel that accepts the wire.
- 15 amp contacts are recommended for 20-16 gauge wire
- 30 amp contacts are recommended for 14-12 gauge wire
- 45 amp contacts are recommended for 10 gauge wire
Powerpole connectors are both genderless and polarized connectors
Powerpole connectors are genderless, meaning the supply and load connectors are the same. Since there are no male or female parts, all Powerpole connectors mate with themselves.
Powerpole connectors become polarized when the red and black housings slide together via molded-in dovetails on the housings. Connections can be quickly made and remade sightlessly or in the dark.
High current rating, low resistance
The size of the wire a Powerpole contact will accept is the primary limitation of their ability to carry a load. The size of the flat contact area is actually the same for all 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts. Powerpole connectors will safely handle higher loads or surges, please read the data sheet for additional information.
The contacts are made of highly conductive silver or tin plated copper for minimal contact resistance at high currents. The average contact resistance is 600 micro-ohms.
Durable polycarbonate housing
The Powerpole insulated housings use a durable, high impact-resistant, high temperature polycarbonate plastic with a UL94 V-0 flammability rating. The connector design allows air to flow through the housing, assisting in cooling.
Powerpole housings have a modular design that allows for multi-pole (multi-conductor) configurations. Housings slide together via molded-in dovetails.
