General Information:

The IEC 60320 C15 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to  250V & 10 Amps Internationally and 125V/250V & 15 Amps in North America. The C15 mates with a C16 inlet as well as a C14 Inlet and is commonly used 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. The C15 connector is commonly used with 18awg SJT(OW), 16awg SJT(OW), and 14awg SJT(OW). The Auto Locking feature is a universal locking mechanism that pinches the pins internally, preventing from nuisance unplugging of the connection. To release the locking mechanism, simply pull back on the red tabs located on each side.
