The NEMA 6-20P Power Cords connects to any standard NEMA 6-20R female outlet receptacle or connector. Our adapter cords include the IEC c13, c19 and the c15 for high temp applications. The cord connector variation you need will depend on the device you are trying power. Inspect the power inlet on the back of your equipment, and make sure that the device requires 220v/240v/250v and 20amp.
The cordage of the power cord set will determine the amperage rating, in an effort to provide more pricing options, we offer a variety of wire gauge options. Refer to your devices name plate to determine your amperage requirements.
If you are not sure what is a NEMA 6-20p plug, or NEMA 6-20P vs. 6-15P refer to our informational snippets below.

The NEMA 6-20P Power Cords are rated up to 250VAC and 20A. This power cord set is designed for applications that require extra power than the standard 5-20P Power cords and are compatible with a Hot-Hot-Ground(2 Pole) wiring connection. These cord sets are typically used for connecting a 6-20R wall receptacle or connector, to a particular device. The device you intend to power will have a certain power inlet style that will likely match with one of our connector options in the 6-20P Power Cord Series. Refer with your team to make sure your power demands are satisfied under the voltage and ampere ratings of the cord you choose.
The NEMA 6-20P to Open/Whip/Pig Tail- NACC is a power supply cord rated for 250VAC and 20A max with 12AWG. NACC, North American Color Code, refers to the color code of the conductor insulation which is BLACK / WHITE / GREEN. This cord is for field installation to equipment or device that requires a line, line and ground conductor (not exceeding the rated power of the cord) to operate. Standard Whips are Remove Outer Jacket(ROJ) 2" and then each conductor is stripped 1/4" to bare conductor. Other ROJ/Strip combinations are available for bulk quantities upon request. For two pole cords like this, "X" pole is generally black and "Y" pole is white, with green as the ground conductor.
The NEMA 6-20P is a 3 Wire grounded plug featuring two line blades and a ground pin, rated up to 250V AC and 20A. The 6-20P has a horizontal and vertical blade to prevent attachment to lower ampere rated receptacles. However, the 6-20R (receptacle) offers a "T" slot allowing connection of both a 6-20P and a 6-15P. Common applications are commercial ovens and large air condition units. The NEMA 6-20P Series does not feature a neutral conductor.
What does the 6-20P Connect to?
|The NEMA 6-20P Connects to both the NEMA 6-20R Connector and the NEMA 6-15/20R Wall Outlet. The Connector is used for extension cords and power drops, while the outlet is found in some commercial and industrial buildings.|
The NEMA 6-20R (T-Slot) is a 3 Wire grounded connector rated up to 250VAC and 20A. The 6-20P has a horizontal and vertical blade to prevent attachment to lower ampere rated receptacles. However, the 6-20R (receptacle) offers a "T" slot allowing connection of both a 6-20P and a 6-15P. Common applications are commercial ovens and large air condition units. This connector is found in our NEMA 6-20 Extension cord Series which are commonly used in industrial and commercial settings.
What does the NEMA 6-20R Connect to?
|The NEMA 6-20R Connector is designed to connect to the NEMA 6-20P Plug and Inlet.The plug is used on a variety of power cords, and the Inlet can be found on different industrial and commercial equipment.|
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 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|
