Abstract:

The patent relates to a slide-on type of electrical connector having two separated concentric contact elements encapsulated within a dielectric mounting material. Each contact element includes a slide contact at one of its ends and a post-type terminal at its other end. The respective slide-on contacts are concentrically arranged, one within the other, for completing two separate circuits when the connector is telescoped onto a mating connector device. Each of the contact elements has a large contact surface and a large effective cross section along its entire length for enabling the connector element to carry large currents in excess of 200 amperes. Each contact element is preferably formed as a one piece metal casting.
