  • Publication number: 20200208622
    Abstract: A compressor includes a terminal cover. The terminal cover includes a first terminal protector protecting a first glass-sealed terminal assembly, a first power line guide guiding first power lines connected to the first glass-sealed terminal assembly, a first power line outlet through which the first power lines extend outward, a second terminal protector protecting a second glass-sealed terminal assembly, a second power line guide guiding second power lines connected to the second glass-sealed terminal assembly, and a second power line outlet through which the second power lines extend outward. The first power line guide guides the first power lines in a guiding direction away from the second terminal protector. The second power line guide guides the second power lines such that the second power lines bypass the first terminal protector and are directed in a direction identical to the guiding direction.
