Power Distribution

Salt Lake County ARES recommends the use of Anderson Powerpole connectors for all power connections.  If members use other types of power connectors (e.g. Banana plugs), they should be able to convert from Anderson Powerpoles to their personal power distribution system if at all possible.  If appropriate, members should also be able to provide power to other members using Anderson Powerpole connectors.
