NEMA L5 Plug/Receptacle Information

THE NEMA L5 standard specifies three wire (hot-neutral-ground), two blade one ground pin, grounded devices rated up to 125V.


  • NEMA L5-15P

    The NEMA L5-15P is a 3 Wire 3 Blade grounded plug featuring 3 Blades arranged in a tight circular pattern rated up to 125V AC and 15 Amps.. The plug locks to the connector by twisting into place. Locking cords are typically used in industrial applications to ensure that accidental power loss does not occur due to a loose connection.

What connector should I use on my L5-15P cordset?


  • 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 a jumper cable scenario 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.

  • 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.

  • NEMA L5-15R (Female)

    The NEMA L5-15R is the female version (receptacle, socket, outlet) of the NEMA L5-15R. Utilizing this connector with a NEMA L5-15R plug will result in an extension cable. We provide L5-15R extension cables in a 14awg configuration with multiple jacket options. 

  • Open Ended (whips)

    Open Ended connectors are used to hardwire to another device or piece of equipment. We can provide custom lenght ROJ and Strip lengths for our open ended NEMA 5-15P power cables. We can also provide blunt cut, and terminated conductors as well.



Why use locking NEMA plugs and sockets?

Twist-Lock NEMA Power cables allow for a more secure connection for critical applications, and in environments where accidental disconnects can easily occur. Common places Twist-Lock power cables are found are industrial setttings, construction, data centers, and more.
