Anderson Power Products has designed the Saf-D-Grid Line Power Connector to replace traditional IEC C14 power connectors in DC applications.
Now available from Mouser, the Saf-D-Grid Power Connector is an innovative new design in plug and receptacles that features a touch-safe shell with locking mechanism and a first mate/last break ground for a more secure and safe connection in a similar footprint to the current IEC C14 connections.
Saf-D-Grid Connectors are designed for use with data servers and in other industries where the growing trend is DC power storage only. The Saf-D-Grid Power Connectors are also AC rated, have power handling capability for 20A instead of 13A with traditional IEC C14 connectors, and are hot-plug rated for both electronic (capacitive) and electrical (resistive) loads.More news from Mouser
