Panel Bulkhead 2 Pin Surface Mount w/ Extension – 12 AWG

by on Feb.01, 2017, under Application

In response to a specific Customer request, We put together this assembly.

An aspect that makes this assembly particularly useful is that a 13/16″ hole drilled in a panel, bulkhead, or other surface, as necessary to install this Surface Mount Connector, allows our Enhanced Grip Connector body to pass through, as well. This facilitates a very cool installation!

This assembly is of particular benefit to those building a portable power unit with a battery in a battery box. The polarity is set up such that the Enhanced Grip Connector couples correctly with a properly installed Fused Battery Quick Connect. The Surface Mount connector provides an output of the proper polarity.

For necessary protection, “Battery Quick Connect” assemblies have an integral fuse holder for fuse sized to protect the circuit components, generally based on the current carrying capacity of the conductors. This assembly being 12 AWG, we offer a 12 AWG Fused Quick Connect, as well. Your choice of fuse value can be based on your particular application components, but is limited to the ampacity of 12 AWG.

For now, we’re making soldered connections protected with shrink tubing to produce this assembly. If the benefits and value we’re seeing in this assemby become recognized and result in sufficient level of sales, we will produce a manufacturing process finished product.

SAE 2 Pin Connector Assemblies with Extended Leads

SAE 2 Pin Surface Mount extended w/ 5 foot 12 AWG

As a result of offering some of our pigtail assemblies with “extended” leads, we have confirmed that there is adequate demand.  Therefore, we are moving forward with producing some of our assemblies with extended leads.

For example, offering our SAE 2 Pin Surface Mount pigtail assembly (12″ long cord with 12 AWG leads) “extended” out to 5′ with 48″ of separate 12 AWG leads – precipitated flow of orders prompting manufacture vs. “extension” through soldered joints insulated with heat shrinkable tubing.

Similarly, we are offering the Shrouded SAE 2 Pin 12″ pigtail with 12 AWG “extended” out to 5′.  Thus far, we have seen little interest – but the “shrouded SAE 2 Pin” pigtail has not yet precipitated all that much interest.  Surprisingly, its benefits in terms of “connection protection” don’t yet seem to have been recognized.

This scenario has us looking at other opportunities.  For example, “extending” our SAE 2 Pin 12″ pigtail assemblies with red & black insulated 12 AWG  out to 5′.  It should be noted here that we already offer SAE 2 Pin with 5′ of 12 AWG – both leads with Black insulation.

SAE 2 Pin assemblies with longer leads are no doubt more convenient for some applications.  For applications in which 5′ leads avoids extension by the user, for example.  Clearly, this makes for a cleaner installation in some cases.

Manufacturing to a specific length requires us to consider the market for that specific configuration, but we are equipped and ready to “extend” our assemblies using soldered/heat shrink tubing insulated connections.
