Abstract:
Aspects of a welding-type cable and torch are provided. The welding-type cable (102) includes a power conductor to conduct welding-type power and a weld torch interface (108) on a distal end of the welding-type cable to attach a weld torch (110, 112, 114, 116, 118, 120) to the power conductor. The welding-type torch includes a power connector (110C, 112C, 114C, 116C, 118C, 120C) to transfer welding-type power between the welding-type torch and a power conductor of a welding-type cable that is detachably coupled to the power connector. An electrode to perform a welding-type operation using the welding-type power is also provided.
