Would these replace the molex socket on the RAMBO board?

This is to replace the red 2-pin connector at the back of the bed, connecting from the flex harness to the silicone-pad bed heater itself. Anderson PowerPole connectors have silver plated contacts, that are broadside contacting, self-wiping onconnection, and designed for minimal resistance (and heating) at the sorts of current used by the bed heater. At the other end, on the RAMBo board, are wire-to-board connectors that I've usually seen made by Phoenix. They're fine, but are definitely NOT designed for current in the 15A or 30A range!
