Title: ARC RESISTANT POWER TERMINAL
Abstract:
An arc-resistant electrical terminal (100) includes a mount portion (104) and a wire receiving portion (102) formed of an electrically conductive material. The wire receiving portion (102) is configured to be crimped onto a wire. The mount portion (104) includes a solid tongue (116) having opposing face surfaces. An aperture (126) is formed between the opposing face surfaces for connecting the terminal to a connection point. A layer of insulation material (230) is formed on at least a portion of the tongue for preventing arcing at a connection point. A raised boss (220a, 220b) is formed to surround the aperture (126) on at least one of the opposing face surfaces of the tongue (116), the raised boss providing an electrically conductive surface of the terminal (100) free from the layer of insulation material for connection to a connection point.
