Electrical Connecting Block

The device, as shown schematically in the figures, allows receptacle A and receptacle B to be electrically joined.

The exploded isometric view as shown in Fig. 3 depicts the three major components of the device. These components are receptacle A, receptacle B, and ganged shorting bar 10.

Fig. 1 depicts an exploded isometric view of the central element of the device. In order to satisfy EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) requirements, fluid seal flange area 12 is placed on ganged shorting bar 10 for shielding. Fig. 2 depicts an end view of the device with shorting bar 10 in contact with receptacle A and receptacle B.

Referring to Fig. 3, receptacle A and receptacle B are positioned in spaced relationship with each other in aperture 14 of AC box 16. Receptacle B is interconnected by cables 18 to EMC filter 20. Likewise, receptacle A is interconnected to circuit breaker 22 by cables 24. To complete the assembly, male receptacles 26 of ganged shorting bar 10 are plugged into female receptacles 28 of receptacles A and B. Screw fastenings 30 are used to hold the assembly together.
