35-A Connectors

Anderson Power Products’ (APP) new 35-A Power Drawer connectors are used on “N + 1” power supply and rectifier systems for server, telecommunications and network applications.

APP’s versatile Power Drawer connectors are UL verified for cross mating with competitive products, offering the designer and user development and sourcing options.

The new 35-A Power Drawer connectors can be configured with up to eight #16 AWG contacts and 21 #20 AWG contacts or a combination of four #16 AWG contacts, four #12 AWG contacts and 21 #20 AWG contacts. Pin and socket contacts are available for both connectors with crimp, solder cup or printed circuit board termination.

The connector’s pin contacts can also be specified for first-mate and last-mate connection. This allows the electronic system to be grounded and mating electronically verified before the power circuits are energized.

Anderson Power Products also introduces “true hot plug” contacts for the Power Drawer connector family. The #12 AWG contacts are rated for disconnect interruption up to 25 A. These hot-plug contacts are available for both the 35-A and 75-A Power Drawer connector families.

APP Power Drawer connectors also feature integral guide pins, which correct misalignment during blind mating. Additionally, the connector offers an optional floating mount, reducing the fatigue stress on the connector during blind mating.
