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.
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.
What does a NEMA 5-20P Connect to?
The NEMA 5-20 Plug connects to both the NEMA 5-20R Connector and the NEMA 5-15/5-20R Wall Outlet. The connector is commonly found on Extension cords, and the NEMA 5-15/5-20R Wall Outlet is the standard power supply outlet in all residential and commercial construction in North America.
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. The Receptacles are the defacto power supply for all of North America. 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. It is commonly used with 12awg or 15awg depending on the application and the required amperage.
What does the NEMA 5-20R Connect to?
|The NEMA 5-20R Connector is designed to connect to both the NEMA 5-15P and the NEMA 5-20P. The T-Slot allows both variations to be plugged in, making this connector more versatile and therefore more widely used across all industries.|
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?
|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.|
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?
|The 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.|
The IEC 60320 C19 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 20 Amps. The C19 can be found on a variety of power cords, including NEMA to 320 Adapter cords, and International Plug types to IEC 320 connectors, but the most common application is the IEC 320 C20 to C19 power cord which is a a standard extension cord used to power high powered IT Equipment. 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.
What does the IEC 60320 C19 Connect to?
|The IEC 60320 type C19 connector is designed to connect to the IEC 320 C20 plug and Inlet. THE C20 Plug is commonly found on power cords used in the data center industry. The C20 Inlet can be found on a variety of high powered IT Equipment ranging from switches to Un-Interrupted Power Supply systems.|
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.
International Color Code(ICC) vs. North American Color Code(NACC)
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).
|Ground Color||Neutral Color||Line/ Hot Color|
|International Color Code (ICC)|
Green & Yellow
|North American Color Code (NACC)||Green||White||Black|
