A crimped terminal wire for automobile includes an aluminum electric wire, a connecting terminal made from a copper-based material, crimped onto an end of the wire and including a crimped member, a crimped portion where the terminal is crimped onto the wire, and a resin-coated portion disposed on the crimped portion, wherein the resin-coated portion is disposed on the crimped portion while an entire periphery of the crimped portion is coated with the resin-coated portion.08-08-2013
20110174536FIBRE REINFORCED COMPOSITE STRUCTURES AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURE - In the formation of a fiber reinforced composite material component produced by a resin transfer infusion process such as to have an electrically conductive surface layer for lightning strike protection wherein the component is to be drilled and countersunk to receive an electrically conductive fastener, a localized part of the electrically conductive mesh is deformed so as to be relocated in the countersunk recess thus to ensure electrical contact with the fastener when inserted and to eliminate any gap between the mesh and the fastener, thus determining the electrical conductive integrity of the mesh to avoid arcing in the event of lightning strike attachment.07-21-2011
20130087384CABLE GROUNDING SYSTEM - A cable grounding system includes a cable that has an outer conductor and a jacket surrounding the outer conductor. The outer conductor may include an exposed portion that is exposed relative to the jacket. A cable clamp may include top and bottom clamps, a dielectric cover, and an electrical contact. The top and bottom clamps may clamp the exposed portion of the outer conductor therebetween such that the outer conductor is electrically connected to the top and bottom clamps. The electrical contact may be configured to be electrically connected to ground. The dielectric cover may cover at least a portion of the top clamp and may cover at least a portion of the bottom clamp.04-11-2013
20090133928Floor-mounted domestic appliance - A floor-mounted domestic appliance includes an A.C. power connector that supplies the appliance with electric energy, an appliance outlet that corresponds to the A.C. power connector, wherein the appliance outlet comprises a terminal block for establishing an electrically conducting connection to a power supply lead.05-28-2009
20120261187POWER CONVERTING APPARATUS AND FILTER SWITCH - A power converting apparatus includes a switching element, a filter substrate, a housing, a main body, an air duct, and a filter switch. The switching element is configured to convert and output power. The filter substrate includes a filter circuit configured to reduce transmission of noise generated in the switching element to an input power source. The housing includes a housing base having a first surface and a second surface. The main body is on the first surface of the housing base, and includes the filter substrate and a plurality of electronic components. The air duct is disposed on the second surface of the housing base, and cooling air flows through the air duct. The filter switch is on the first surface of the housing base. The filter switch is configured to switch between making and breaking electrical conduction between the filter circuit and the housing.10-18-2012
