What is an Anderson plug connection

The Anderson connection is most used in caravans, campers, and tow vehicles. At PSS we use Anderson connections to connect our EBM (external battery modules) to the UPS, this provides power and charge to the EBM.

UPS that are purchased with EBM are supplied with the Anderson connection for the UPS and the EBM’s. The Anderson’s can be connected to the UPS and EBM on site, but this is generally done by a technician at PSS before being shipped out. On site the Anderson plugs will just need to be plugged into the reciprocal Anderson, via plugging negative into negative and vice versa

The Anderson charger on the UPS is customised to the number of EBM attached to the UPS for efficient timely re-charging of batteries.
