Anderson Power Pole Connectors (APPC) 30 Amp Standard configuration: RED on the Right, BLACK on the Left Connection points on the bottom half Presentation Prepared By: Bob Haynie KC7JOK 02-Jan-08
Housings And Wire End Connectors With the Connection Tabs Down LeftRight
The wire end connectors are soldered or crimped on the wires then inserted into the housing until it snaps and locks into place. Slide the 2 housings togetherThe housings will stay together
If you don’t Solder you can use special crimpers to assemble your connectors Be very careful how you use the crimpers If you crimp the wire end connectors on the wrong side it will flare the connector and make it very difficult and almost impossible to insert in the plastic housing. The wire end connectors are split on one side
Place the split side of the wire end connector against this side of the crimpers. Correct Wrong
Ready to Crimp Correctly Crimped Notice the connector split side is not deformed and is nice, round and smooth
Completed and un-assembled components I use heat shrink over the wires to hold them together and also keep the housings for sliding apart. A small roll pin can also be inserted in the center to keep the housings from sliding apart.
