General Information

The NEMA L5-20P Power Cord Series is rated up to 125VAC and 20A. The plug can be locked into place on the matching receptacle which prevents nuisance disconnection. This feature makes this plug popular in commercial and industrial settings where high traffic or moving of equipment is common. If you do not require this added locking safety feature, you should look into our NEMA 5-20P Power Cord Series unless your specifically connecting to a L5-20R. Refer with your team to decide which power cord best fits your needs. 


The NEMA L5-20P to Open/Whip/Pig Tail- 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, neutral and ground conductor (not exceeding the rated power of the cord) to operate. Standard Whips are Removed 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.

NEMA L5-20P

The NEMA L5-20P is a 3 Wire grounded plug with a hot, neutral , and ground pin rated up to 125V and 20A. This plug can be locked into place on the matching receptacle which prevents nuisance disconnection. This plug looks nearly identical to L5-30P but is slightly smaller in pin thickness and alignment circumference. Refer to either plug,  receptacle or face plate to find out your amp requirements.

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.

Open Ended (Whips, Pigtails, ROJ Strip)

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. 

NEMA L5-20R Twist-Lock

The NEMA L5-20R Twist-Lock Connector is rated up to 125VAC and 20A. This couples with the L5-20P and locks into place, eliminating nuisance disconnection. This makes this connector common in commercial and industrial settings where there is high traffic. This connector is found on our L5-20 Extension Cord Series, which is used to extend power from an existing L5-20R wall receptacle or connector to a certain location for convenience.
