Anderson Power Products announces the launch of the Saf-D-Grid connector system for use in the direct connection of DC electronic devices to a DC micro grid. This connector system is ideal for use in DC servers or any device connecting directly to renewable energy sources such as Solar or Wind power. Anderson Power Products (APP), a leader in the design and manufacture of interconnect solutions, announces the launch of the Saf-D-Grid connector system for use in the direct connection of DC electronic devices to a DC micro grid. This connector system is ideal for use in DC servers or any device connecting directly to renewable energy sources such as Solar or Wind power.

The Saf-D-Grid connector system meets international safety requirements for low voltage applications to 400 VDC including UL950 and IEC60950. The low profile panel receptacle is designed to fit the standard panel cut-out for IEC320 C14 outlets while providing touch safe connections up to 20 amperes at 600 VDC. The connectors are hot plug rated up to 700A in-rush current at 400 volts and shield the user from arc flash during un-mating. Additional safety features include a first mate, last break contact to provide ground and an integral latch to prevent connectors from accidental un-mating. The rugged polycarbonate housings are UL94 V-0 rated and plug power cords, over-molded to provide both strain relief during mating and un-mating, are available in 2 meter, 3 meter, and 5 meter lengths in both single and double ended styles.
