I think most folks are familiar with the 30 amp red and black power pole
connectors that are quickly becoming the unofficial standard for equipment
power connections. If you're not,
http://www.andersonpower.com/powerpole3.html may ring a bell.
Anyway, one question I've not seen answered with any authority is which
side the red and black connectors should be placed for maximum
In other words, as I look at the front of two red and black connectors,
with the metal tongues at the bottom of the plastic housing, is the
red/positive connector supposed to be on the right or the left?
Is there such a standard?! Since the construction of the connectors is
such that connectors assembled to the same standard will always
interconnect correctly, it would sure seem reasonable.
