Anderson Powerpoles are a great way to reliably connect high current components. They're available in 15, 30, 45, 50, 75, 175, and 350A versions, each with contacts available for a range of wire gauges, so be sure to specify the wire gauge when you purchase them. We also have many colors available for the smallest size housing. For the smaller contacts, crimp the contact onto your wire. You can use our tri-crimp tool, which is made specifically for use with 15, 30, and 45 Amp powerpole contacts. Simply insert your stripped wire into the opening on the contact, place the contact into the crimp tool, and squeeze the handle until the ratchet releases. It gives a perfect crimp every time. For the contacts larger than 45 Amps, I would recommend using a small butane torch to solder them. Be careful not to get too much solder on the outside of the contact because it will still need to be able to fit into the housing. Slide the contact with the wire attached into the housing until you hear a click as the lip on the contact snaps over the end of the spring. For smaller gauge wires, you may need to use a flat-head screwdriver or punch to push the contact into the housing. To attach two together, simply slide them together. You can also connect groups of powerpoles into blocks using the features on the sides of the connectors.
Removing a contact from the housing can be fairly challenging. It helps to have a small flat-head screwdriver. The trick is that the spring is slightly wider than the contact. Press down on the spring until it clears the lip on the underside of the contact, then slide the contact out. You may need to push the contact off to one side to expose the spring. For the smaller contacts, it may be easier to lift up on the front edge of the contact to get it over the spring. Every powerpole set comes with a roll pin to keep your connectors from getting misaligned if you're connecting more than one at a time.
