Abstract: A high current carrying connector plug and receptacle are disclosed. The plug comprises a body of electrical insulating material with plurality of shaped passages extending therethrough, electrical conductors having a flat blade contact portion, a stop means and a hollowed cylindrical portion for receiving and securing a current carrying electrical cable. The passages include stop engaging means. A retainer means engages the flat bladed portion preventing axial movement of the conductors in the plug body.The receptacle comprises a body of electrical insulating material having shaped passages therethrough, electrically conductive conductor contact engaging assemblies in each passage at the front face of the body. The contact assemblies comprise movable jaws having a front contact engaging portion and a rear coupler engaging portion and a spring retainer means converging at least one pair of jaws.
Abstract: The resistance of an inductive load is measured by connecting an inductor to the load and applying a pulse of energy to the load and the inductor. The voltage across the inductor is monitored and the load voltage and current are measured when the inductor voltage passes through zero. The ratio of the voltage and current at the instant of zero crossing is equal to the load resistance value. An apparatus for performing this method is disclosed.
