Re: electrical connector for Boxtron

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.
