English term or phrase: eight circuits connected 1/4 inch flat blade terminals
I think this is about the plugs (with blade contacts) and receptacles that we have in the US, but why is it "8 circuits"?

Then in 1953, 15 years after it was founded, Molex changed forever. It became a connector manufacturer when John Krehbiel Sr. invented a two-piece connector: the 686 plug and receptacle. Eight circuits connected 1/4 inch flat blade terminals insulated by a housing made of Molex material.

In 1940, one of Frederick’s sons, John H. Krehbiel, Sr., joined Molex and soon recognized the importance of this material’s excellent electrical insulating properties. Later in the decade, Molex added metal stamping to its molding processes, resulting in its first connector assembly for Hotpoint/GE.

In the 1950s, Molex rapidly penetrated the appliance market with its low cost connector terminal blocks. The company launched its first plug and receptacle connector line in 1953.
