Re: electrical connector for Boxtron

Hi Alex,

As you probably noticed, it's made by Anderson Power Products.  It is most likely the SB-50 model.  If you unscrew it and look at the bottom, you'll be able to definitively identify the model.

These connectors are genderless (no need to worry about matching male/female), but will only mate with others of the same color.  The contacts that go inside come in a variety of wire sizes, so be sure you get the right ones for your purpose -- it's likely most suppliers will sell the contacts separately from the housing.  Many sizes are available on Amazon (like this one, which includes 8 AWG contacts) if the manufacturer only sells in bulk.  You could also try Digi-Key once you know the part number for the contacts, which you can find in the data sheet.

These are great connectors.  I've used them on many projects.
