General Information

The NEMA 5-20P Power Cords are a heavier duty version of the 5-15P, offering higher maximum power at 125V and 20A. If your equipment doesn't require more than 15A, the NEMA 5-15P Power Cords may be the better option to fit your power needs. This series of power cords are commonly used to connect a NEMA 5-20R wall receptacle to a variety of equipment and devices depending on your connection type. We offer NEMA 5-20P to IEC 60320 C13, C15, C19, extension cords, and OPEN/PIG TAIL/WHIPS. 

NEMA 5-20P

The NEMA 5-20P is a 3 Wire grounded plug featuring two blades and one ground pin rated up to 125V AC and 20 Amps. The NEMA 5-20P is used in applications that require higher power draw such as large refrigerators, space heaters, large kitchen mixers, etc. The 5-20R T-Slot receptacle allows you to plug in either a 5-20P or a 5-15P plug, allowing greater flexibility. In modern home installations, 5-20R T-Slot receptacles are often used when 20A circuits are installed due to flexibility of being downward compatible with the 5-15P.

NEMA 5-20R (T-Slot)

The NEMA 5-20R (T-Slot) is a 3 wire grounded connector rated up to 125VAC and 20A. The 5-20R T-Slot receptacles are often used when 20A circuits are installed due to flexibility of being downward compatible with the 5-15P. This connector is found on our 5-20 Extension cord Series, used commonly for extending power from a standard NEMA 5-20R wall receptacle to a given location for convenience. 

IEC 60320 C13 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

  • 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.

IEC 60320 C15 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

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).

IEC 60320 C19 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

  • The IEC 60320 C19 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 20 Amps. The C19 mates with a C20 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 C19 is typically used in high powered blade server chassis, large network routers, and other IT equipment that draws more power than a standard C13 can accommodate.
