IEC 60320 P-Lock C20 to C15 Power Cords

IEC 60320 C20 C15 P-LOCK Power Cords feature a locking plug (male) that securely locks into place when used with a matching inlet. P-LOCK Power Cords are used with Server Technology PDUs (Power Distribution Unit) to supply power from the PDU to a server, router, switch or other device. The C15 Connector is HIGH-TEMPERATURE connector which mates with either a C-16 or C-14 Inlet. The Locking C15 Plug helps ensure a secure connection between the cable and the pdu, reducing accidental power loss to equipment due to loose connections. We stock a wide array of lengths and colors to meet your specific need. Standard jacket color is black, however, RED and BLUE power cables are used to help identify primary and secondary power sources. Standard jacket is SJT, standard gauge is 14awg. Standard amperage is 15 AMP

IEC 60320 C15 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

IEC 60320 C15 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

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 and can also be down graded to a C14 Inlet. 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. There is a dimple located below the ground pin to ensure that the standard C13 connector cannot be plugged into the C16 Inlet which is used on high temperature applications. This design is utilized to allow this C15 connector to be used on both high temperature applications and standard applications, as to not limit the user. The C15 connector is commonly used with 18awg SJT(OW), 16awg SJT(OW), and 14awg SJT(OW).

What does the IEC 60320 C15 Connect to?





IEC 60320 C14 Inlet
IEC 60320 C16 High Temperature InletThe IEC 60320 type C15 connector is designed to plug into the high temperature rated IEC 320 C16 Inlet. This inlet is commonly found on high performance IT Equipment that reaches heats that exceed the rating of the standard IEC C13 connector. This inlet is designed to reach temperatures up to 120*C. The C15 can also be plugged into a standard non-high temp application C14 Inlet, which is located on a wide variety of IT Equipment like computer monitors and switches.


IEC 60320 C20 P-Lock

IEC 60320 C20 P-Lock
  • The C20 P-Lock is a high quality design, that virtually eliminates chances of nuisance unplugging by latching into the C19 Inlet that it plugs into. This can be an essential solution for design teams looking to eliminate these moments of stress when a plug powering IT Equipment becomes unplugged. To unlatch the locked plug, pinch the tabs located on each side. Discuss with your team locations in your data center or server room where there is high traffic, and good candidates for such locking features.
