SAE 2 Pin for GPS Survey Equipment

SAE 2 Pin Max Strain Relief

SAE 2 Pin Max Strain Relief & Grip

Researching the use of SAE 2 Pin connector cable assemblies to power and charge surveying equipment indicates there are a limited number of choices.

Specifically, the Topcon Model RE-S1 only lists 2 associated assemblies P/N 14-008022-01 and 14-008025-01

Limited choices, and that this specialized field is driving some high prices, spells opportunity.

We can see where a greater number of cable assembly choices, as well as, reasonable pricing, are values we can bring to this application.

Frequent use makes higher quality SAE 2 Pin connector configurations with enhanced strain relief and grip the certain choice in the field.

Durability is no doubt required in this application, and heavier gauge (although maybe not required for current carrying) often contributes higher durability.

Topcon P/N 14-008022-01 seems to be an SAE 2 Pin 6 foot extension (unknown AWG).

Topcon P/N 14-008025-01 seems to be an SAE 2 Pin “Quick Connect” type assembly with Alligator Clips (about 18″ long, unfused, and unknown AWG)

Found another supplier offering 2 different Fused 6 foot “Quick Connect” type assemblies with (unknown diameter) ring terminals (unknown AWG), one with an enhanced configuration SAE 2 Pin, and the other with a shrouded enhanced configuration. Both carried more reasonable pricing, but still priced higher than we see necessary.

We assemble a wide assortment of High Quality Configurations meeting specific Customer needs at a reasonable price.

We’ll take the time to discuss and understand the specifics of your application and how You would like to address them.

A combination of a couple assemblies is sometimes the answer, and we can even supply You with a zipper bag to keep them protected and neatly stored.

We’ve been in business for 10 years, and we’ve developed a knack for ascertaining details and pleasing our customers.

2 Way Connector as an Alternate Designation for SAE 2 Pin

by on May.07, 2016, under Terminology

Clearly, there are a large number of people who don’t even know these particular designations.

We have been banking on the “SAE 2 Pin” designation, as we feel this automotive designation is most appropriate.

In the interest of capturing the attention of a greater number of seekers, we are keenly attentive to what words others might use in a search.

Somehow “2 way” doesn’t seem all that descriptive, but nevertheless it seems to have caught on with at least a few manufacturers, suppliers, and seekers.

Furthermore, it seems ironic (at least to US – focused on “Made in USA”) that a product manufactured outside the US should become the most prevalent found via an internet search. The Hopkins Manufacturing product 47965 labeled a “2 Pole Flat” connector assembly is found in the towing or trailer equipment area of many discount automotive stores.

Hopkins Product 47965

In our experience (as discussed in previous posts), we have come upon such phrases as “2 prong”, “2 pole”, “2 conductor”, “flat trailer connector”, “12 volt dc connector” being used, as well.

It’s somewhat puzzling to US that the manufacturers of a product marketed and sold in “automotive” stores would chose designations other than that of SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers). Maybe the SAE has rights to that specific designation, and that precludes use of the designation? It wouldn’t seem so, considering the connector design itself is used and simply labeled with an alternate designation.

Without a doubt, what matters is what gets the seeker to that which he or she seeks.
