  • Publication number: 20180351286
    Abstract: A seal that is configured to engage an elongate element, such as a wire cable, and a cavity wall is presented. The seal includes a seal body that is formed of a compliant material such as a silicone rubber. The seal has an outer surface that engages the cavity surface. The seal body defines a gallery extending therethrough and surrounded by an inner surface of the seal body. The seal body has a forward surface extending from a forward edge of the outer surface to a forward edge of the inner surface and a rearward surface extending from a rearward edge of the outer surface to a rearward edge of the inner surface. The seal further includes a support element formed of a rigid material, such as glass filled polyester or NYLON, extending through the seal body in a direction substantially parallel to the inner surface.

  • Patent number: 9653859
    Abstract: An electrical connector system including a male connector having a male terminal that defines a first blade longitudinally projecting from the male terminal and a second blade longitudinally projecting from the same male terminal. A first blade width is less than a second blade width and a first blade length is less than a second blade length. The male terminal further defines a pair of crimp wings configured to attach the male terminal to a wire cable. The system further includes a female connector having a first female terminal configured to receive the first blade and a second female terminal configured to receive the second blade, thereby electrically interconnecting the first female terminal, the second female terminal, and the wire cable.
