Why install Anderson Plugs into covers?

Dirt on electrical connections in mobile environments is the enemy for larger DC currents. These DC currents cause a much greater spark on ignition than AC voltages for the same current.

Dirt, grime and water in electrical connections all cause problems with DC power. Fire can occur in a variety of applications from Camper Trailers to Snow Mobiles.

Fire occurs when dirt collects greases and oils and is ignited by a spark from a DC ignition voltage.

To reduce spark in DC electrical systems, increase the contact area or lower the current.

To decrease water and dirt ingress, use a terminal cover.

Voltage drop is important when selecting the right size cable.

The use of a small cable and high currents is a recipe for fire.

Ask the experts for the correct size cable for the current you wish to draw.

Finally, if you are buying a battery cable ask your, battery supplier, for the right cabling.
