  • IEC 60320 A-Lock Locking C13 Connector (Female)

    The IEC 60320 A-Lock C13 is a grounded 3 Wire A-Lock locking connector rated up to 250V and 15 Amps. The A-Lock C13 mates with a C14 inlet, and is commonly used in a jumper cable scenario in IT Installations providing power from a PDU to a server, router, switch or other computing device. Most people know the C13 as 'the thing that plugs into my computer' because it is the standard connector used to power most desktop computers. In a desktop computer application, the most common cable is the NEMA 5-15P to C13, which connects your standard North American wall outlet to a desktop computer. The A-Lock locks onto the C14 inlet by grabbing the ground pin. To disconnect, simply squeeze the tabs.

  • IEC 60320 C14 Connector (Male)

    The IEC 60320 C14 is a grounded 3 Wire Plug rated up to 250V and 15 Amps. The C14 mates with a C13 outlet, typically found on Data Center/IT specific PDUs (Power Distribution Unit). The most common configuration for a C14 is in a jumper cable scenario, providing power from a PDU to IT Equipment.

  • IEC 60320 A-Lock Locking C15 Connector (Female)

    The IEC 60320 A-Lock C15 is a grounded 3 Wire A-Lock locking connector rated up to  250V & 10 Amps Internationally and 125V/250V & 15 Amps in North America. The A-Lock C15 mates with any IEC 60320 C16 inlet as well as a C14 Inlet and is commonly used in a jumper cable scenario in IT Installations providing power from a PDU to a server, router, switch or other computing device. The C15 is a HIGH TEMPERATURE connector rated up to 120°C, unlike the 70°C rating of the C13. The C15 is commonly used in in electric kettles and other household appliances that involve higher temperatures than a normal C13 is made to withstand.
