Hi everyone. I'm working on a project that uses 2 high-torque DC motors to move a system. The max current draw from each motor is 50 Amps, so the total current draw for the circuit is 100 Amps. The power for the motors will be coming from a vehicle battery, and will have to be routed to the back of the vehicle. I would like to run a cable from the battery terminals into a flanged receptacle that the system can plug in to. I've been looking for a couple days, and I'm having trouble finding readily available connectors that can handle 100 Amps.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does anyone have any recommendations on companies that make (and possibly stock) heavy duty connectors? This is the first time I've had to work with DC motors and DC circuits, so maybe there's a better way to transmit power from the battery to the motors. I've looked at some circular connectors, but I'm having trouble finding anything that will transmit 100 Amps or crimp on to an 8 gauge wire.

Thanks for any help and advice!
