C14 to C13 SPLITTER Power Cords

IEC 60320 C14 to C13 Splitter Power Cords, also known as Y-Cords when using two connectors, are typically used to connect ONE PDU to MULTIPLE PSU's. We carry C14 C13 power splitter cables with 2x, 3x, and 4x branches/legs. It is important you do not exceed the rated power draw of the splitter cord in use when attaching several pieces of equipment. Refer to your equipment's specifications to determine what power rated cord you need.

C14 to C13 Splitter Cables In the Home/Office

Splitter power cables are used in offices/homes to reduce clutter on a desk. By connecting the C14 to the C13 connector on an existing computer power cable, you can use this as an extension cord with two C13 connectors to connect to your computer and monitor. This allows you to only use 1 outlet for all of your equipment. These splitter cables are also perfect for use in multiple monitor configurations in order to connect all monitors to just one outlet.

C14 to C13 Splitter Cables In the Data Center

Splitter power cables are used in data centers to utilize fewer outlets on a PDU. One common method of using splitter cables is for one splitter to connect the PDU on Circuit #1 to the Primary Power Supply on two different servers. Then, connect the PDU on Circuit #2 to the Secondary Power Supply Units on two different servers in the rack. This allows your servers to still have the redundancy of two completely separate circuits. However, if the splitter disconnects from the PDU, two servers will be running on only one power supply unit instead of only one server being disconnected.
