IEC60309 to C13 Power Cords | Industrial to Commercial Adapter Cords

IEC 60309 includes “plugs, socket-outlets and couplers for industrial purposes”. The IEC 60309 standard puts an emphasis on safety through a unique arrangement of pins and earth/ground to ensure that only compatible devices are able to mate. Further, this standard may optionally include a pilot contact that plugs in last when connecting and first when disconnecting to reduce the likelihood or arcing, which may cause damage to the individual or device. The pin and sleeve design of this standard provides some degree of weatherproofing, indicated by its IP (Ingress Protection) marking. Most common are the IP44 and IP66, which provide splash-proof protection and watertight protection, respectively. Overall, this standard is common in open-air conditions where high power draw is required and protection from individuals, dust, water and chemicals is desired.

The pin and sleeve design of this standard provides some degree of weatherproofing, indicated by its IP (Ingress Protection) marking.  

IP44 is known as the "Splashproof" Rating, which breaks down to sealing against solids no smaller than 1.0mm and spraying water at the connection from any angle. Overall, this standard is common in open-air conditions where high power draw is required and protection from individuals, dust, water and chemicals is desired. The IP code, as defined by standard IEC 60529, classifies the degrees of protection provided against the intrusion of solids and liquids.

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 iec 320 c13 c14 plug and connector are synonymous with Information Technology equipment primarily, but the C13 can be found powering equipment like medical devices and gaming consoles.

What does the IEC 60320 C13 Connect to?
