The name Bulgin is used colloquially in technical theatre to refer to certain designs of connector, produced by a company called Bulgin Components:
8 pin mains connectors
These are common on low-end disco lighting controllers and normally carry three or four channels of mains signal. There is a safety hazard associated with older uses of these connectors as the same connector was used for both inputs and outputs. However a cable socket and panel plug are now available, removing this risk on equipment that uses them.
