Housings should be mated according to the diagram above,
viewing from the contact side (opposite the wire side), tongue down, hood
RED on the LEFT, BLACK on the RIGHT. Use a 3/32-inch-diameter roll pin, 1/4 inch long, to keep the housings from sliding apart.
Non-corrosive stainless-steel leaf
springs maintain constant contact pressure—ideal for frequent connections/disconnections
intermittent overloading. Durable, high impact-resistant, polycarbonate housing with UL94V-2 flammability ratings comes in many
colors for circuit trace ability and coding.
Identical connector halves are
genderless—making assembly quick and easy and reducing the number of parts
dovetails allow for customized harness in a variety of configurations.
The 30-ampere contacts are designed
for 12-16 AWG wire. The contacts can be soldered or crimped to wires. A
crimping tool is available from Anderson (we offer a very inexpensive alternative that does just as good a job). After a contact has
been attached to a wire, it should be installed into the housing so that the housing spring mates with the underside of the contact.
When you slide it completely in the housing you should hear a click when it passes the spring detent.
To remove a contact from the housing,
use Anderson insertion/extraction tool #111038G2. You may also substitute
a very small
blade (jewelers screwdriver or X-Acto knife) to lift up the front of the contact slightly over the detent and pull the contact out of
the rear of the housing, allowing the contact to be removed.
