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 C7 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

IEC 60320 C7 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

General Information:

The IEC 60320 C7 is an ungrounded 2 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 2.5 Amps Internationally or 125V and 10 Amps in North America. This connector is commonly used to connect power to a device that does not require a ground because of double insulating material which prevents the user of the device from being electrocuted. The C7 mates with a C8 inlet, and is commonly used for laptop power supplies, video game consoles, televisions, and other double-insulated small appliances. This connector is sometimes referred to as a "Figure-8" or "Shotgun" connector due to it's shape. A variation of the C7 exists, sometimes referred to as a C7P or C7 Polarized, although it is not documented in the IEC 60320 standard. The C7P has one square side and one circular side so the connector only mates with the inlet using the correct pin configuration.

How to tell the difference between Polarized vs. Unpolarized? What does the C7 Connect to?




IEC 60320 C7 Connector Polarized

IEC 60320 C8 Polarized Inlet
Polarized

The Polarized C7 Connector/ Polarized C8 Inlet will have a squared off side that will force polarity. In other words, if a device is not internally engineered to accept the line/ load in either orientation, the device will be wired with the polarized C8.




IEC 60320 C7 Non Polarized Connector

IEC 60320 C8 Inlet Non Polarized
Non-Polarized


The Non Polarized C7 & Non Polarized C8 Inlet can be identified by a "shotgun" look, with symmetrical sides that allow the user to plug in the connector in either orientation because of superior internal wiring.






IEC 60320 C13 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

IEC 60320 C13 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

General Information:

The IEC 60320 C13 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 15 Amps. The 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 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?





IEC 60320 C14 Plug'

IEC 60320 C14 Inlet
The IEC 320 type C13 connector is designed to connect to the IEC 320 C14 plug and inlet. The C14 Plug is commonly found on power cords located in office, commercial or data center settings since the C13 inlet is usually only found in those environments. The C14 Inlet is commonly found on a variety of IT Equipment like monitors, switches, printers, power adapters, and more.

IEC 60320 C5 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

IEC 60320 C5 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

General Information:

The IEC 60320 C5 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 2.5 Amps Internationally or 125V and 10 Amps in North America. The C5 mates with a C6 inlet, and is commonly used for laptop power supplies, projectors, and some televisions. Being slightly smaller in size than the C13, the C5 can be a good choice for smaller appliances. This connector is sometimes referred to as a "Mickey Mouse" connector due to the shape of the connector looking similar to the kids television show character.


What does the IEC 60320 C5 Connect to?



IEC 60320 C6 InletThe IEC 60320 C5 connector is designed to connect to the IEC 60320 C6 Inlet. This inlet is commonly found on low power drawing equipment like computer monitors. It is also found on small power adapter blocks for devices requiring under 2.5 Amps.

Open Ended (Whips, Pigtails, ROJ Strip)

General Information:

The open end of a power supply cord is hard wired to another device, providing power either to our from that device. Unless otherwise noted, our power supply cords come standard with a 2" ROJ (Remove Outer Jacket) and a 1/4" Strip. The ROJ length determines the length of the individual conductors, and the Strip length determines the amount of copper exposed on the end of each conductor. If you require a custom ROJ or Strip length, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

For the majority of our customers, the color code used for the cordage is negligible. However, for OEM customers, or customers dealing with government installations or projects that have highly specified cords the color code used will be important to establish. Our standard color code for our Cut/ Remove of Outer Jacket/ Strip Conductor Job is North American Color Code (NACC).
