Recommendations for battery and phase wire plug/socket?

Post by kiwipete » Jan 10 2014 8:07pm

I have a little 6 FET controller (25A) and am looking to tidy up the wiring because with the current multitude of plugs and leads it resembles a big bowl of spaghetti. :-(

So I'm going to take it out of its current housing and install it into an aluminium diecast box with 3 sockets mounted onto the sides of the box:

- a DB25 socket which handles all the signal/control wiring, so thats under control.

- a socket (and matching plug) for the battery wires.

- a socket (with matching plug) for the 3 phase wire for the motor.

Any recommendations for the socket and plug combos?

for battery connection i use andersons 45a types and for phase wires i use 5.5mm goldies.
they can handle 5kw peak and not melt :)
EDIT: sorry. you were asking for mountable sockets. no idea for that :(

I did once consider using a DB13W3 to integrate high current and signal lines. The power pins can be rated at 40A so it is feasible but I'm not sure I would really recommend it.

You can chassis mount powerpoles of different ratings.eg 45A should be enough for your phase and battery connections, but you can go higher.
