What are Single Pole Connectors?

Single Pole electrical connectors are generally used where high current low voltage cables require easy connections.

They are used in the power distribution industry as well as entertainment and sports events, air and rail travel, mining and other heavy industries.

Basically anywhere that has high current, low voltage, and requires portable connectors.

Single pole connectors are a great choice for large generators and power sources in places where multi-pole connectors cannot be used due to the size and weight that these connector types would require.

You can find single-pole inputs on many large power distribution units.
