About this deal

Following the lead set by the lamp manufacturers in standardizing lamp bases, a conference of the plug and receptacle manufacturers, including Hubbell, was arranged with a view to agreeing a standard configuration. It was a time of great expansion in the use of electrical appliances such as fans, heaters, and cookers, as well as portable devices such as hair curlers and irons, and the public wanted interchangeability. The exhibits that occupied the Palace of Electricity not only required electricity of numerous different voltages, but also either direct current or 1-, 2-, or 3-phase alternating current, with many different frequencies and variations of connectors and plugs. In the other patent, the same type of plug was used with various three-way adaptors that could be connected to lampholders or “a receptacle of any ordinary type”.

For decades, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) tried to develop a universal domestic power plug, but time and again political and economic issues threw a spanner in the works. In 1986, the IEC finally presented the universal standard plug (type N) to the world, but unfortunately the initial enthusiasm had dampened. WARNING!Improper or incorrect wiring of an electrical device can cause bodily harm, and death.We recommend that you consult with a licensed electrician who is familiar with wiring.Use your screwdriver and loosen the two screws holding the female plugcap closed. Then, pry the female plug cap open to reveal the wire terminals. You should notice a green terminal, a silver terminal and a copper terminal. Use the screwdriver to loosen each screw on the terminals. Step 6 Hubbell’s parallel pin configuration was preferred, but Hubbell rebelled against standardization, and refused to agree, asserting that it had common law rights in the dimensions of its line. The other conference members pressed on regardless, and agreed to standardize on Hubbell’s parallel flat pin configuration and dimensions. Hubbell’s court action only served to confirm the legality of their activities, to the great benefit of the US public.

The existence of both “tandem” and parallel pin configurations had led to the introduction in 1914 of some receptacles having both configurations of slots and others having “T” slots. Former colonies may retain the standards of the colonizing country. Sometimes offshore industrial plants or overseas military bases use the wiring practices of their controlling country instead of the surrounding region.Plugs with parallel flat pins, such as the “Fort Wayne” design were in common use by 1886, and flush receptacles, such as the “Bryant Electrical Company” design, by 1902. H. HUBBELL. SEPARABLE ATTACHMENT PLUG. In 1904 at the World’s Fair in St. Louis scientists and engineers from around the world realized for the first time that standards for electrotechnology were urgently needed. Hubbell had introduced its own parallel flat pin configuration in 1912. In 1915 there were from 15 to 20 different types of blades and from 15 to 30 different types of receptacles. The line of each was not interchangeable with competing lines.
