12 Volt DC Electric Connector – SAE 2 Pin

by on Jul.03, 2017, under Configurations

Used to be that where one might 1st encompass an SAE 2 Pin connector would be in a 12 volt DC automotive circuit.

Clearly, the “SAE” (Society of Automotive Engineers) component of the designation is indicative of this initial application.

Widely available is the Hopkins 47965 product available in the trailer wiring department of discount automotive stores.

Later on down the road, it would probably be seeing it on battery charge maintenance equipment like a Deltran Battery Tender.

These days, one’s first exposure could very well be on Portable Solar Power equipment being used to charge hand held electronics.

Current fears regarding terrorism and political unrest has prompted a huge marketplace for the emergency preparedness industry.

The SAE 2 Pin connector configuration used in automotive applications filled the bill at the time, but today’s applications have driven further development.

More frequent coupling and uncoupling in current applications precipitated the the need for greater strain relief, and grip.

Current applications have also led to surface mount configurations, as well as shrouded configurations to minimize exposure to environmental elements.

SAE 2 Pin use by portable solar manufacturers in the development of products serving the US Military, as well as the Civilian marketplace, has prompted additional applications and significant DIY (do-it-yourself) use.

We have been serving this market with SAE 2 Pin assemblies employing enhanced configurations, as well as a wider range of AWG options.

These assemblies have an enhanced elongated connector body configuration for greater strain relief and ease in manipulation (coupling & uncoupling).

The features of these enhanced connectors are an improvement over shorter configurations used mostly in past automotive applications.  An example would be the SAE 2 Pole Flat connectors for 12 volt trailer hitch applications manufactured by Hopkins ( Part No. 47965 ).

Our Improved Design Connectors are great for Portable Solar Applications, especially PV on Campers, Motor Homes, Travel Trailers, and Boats, for Camping, Hiking, Hunting, Fishing, as well as, Emergency Preparedness.

Shroud design provides greater water resistance, especially installed with shroud edge down, such that it provides a “drip edge”.

Elongated configuration, enhanced with serrations for better grip is much more easily manipulated (coupled & uncoupled).

Combined with the benefit of greater strain relief, our extended configuration is the High Quality Heavy Duty alternative to the generic configuration.

We manufacture under the name Bohemian Biker LLC, and carry out ecommerce under the name Solar Capitalist LLC.
